Norrlands artilleriregemente (Norrland Artillery Regiment), designation A 4, was a Swedish Army artillery regiment that traced its origins back to the 19th century. The regiment's soldiers were originally recruited from the provinces of Norrland. The regiment was disbanded in 1997.

History[edit]

The regiment was created in 1893 by splitting off two batteries from Svea artilleriregemente and two batteries from Göta artilleriregemente which formed six batteries of Norrlands artilleriregemente. The regiment was garrisoned in Östersund but a detachment in Boden was created in 1910, this detachment was split off in 1928 and created Norrbottens artillerikår. The regiment's designation was A 4 (4th Artillery Regiment). Norrlands artilleriregemente was disbanded in 1997.
