The 94th Battalion was established in 1984 as an anti-tank unit. With its establishment, the quality of professional training was higher than regular infantry, the battalion's recruits had all infantry basic training in the Paratroopers training base, antitank warfare, navigation and advanced infantry training.
From 1984 to 2006, the battalion soldiers wore red shoes – symbolized the affiliation to the paratroopers – and at the same time, a black beret – as part of an armoured division – with an infantry pin. The unit's flag was similar to the paratroopers' flag – red and white.
