The 4th Corps is a field corps of the Turkish Land Forces. Its headquarters is in Ankara.

In 1974, it appears to have been part of the Second Army. Nigel Thomas's NATO Armies 1949-87, published in 1987, attributed the 4th, 8th, and 9th Corps to the Third Army.[1]

In accordance with NATO's new strategy in the early 1990s, Turkey agreed to commit forces to NATO's ACE Rapid Reaction Corps. "Therefore, the decision was made to create a new division. Thus, the old 1st Infantry Division which had been abolished many years ago was reactivated and renamed as 1 TU Mech Inf Div and attached to 4 TU Corps on 30 November 1993."[2]
