The 26th Artillery Brigade is an artillery formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, based at Berdychiv. It traces its history to the 111th Guards Rifle Division of the Second World War.

After the war, and several redesignations, the 111th Guards Rifle Division became the 117th Guards Tank Training Division. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the 117th Guards Tank Training Division was succeeded by the 62nd Mechanized Brigade, which, in turn, was created 26th Artillery Brigade (based on the Directive of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine from 18.06.2004 № 312/1/014).
