The Boden Engineer Regiment (Swedish: Bodens ingenjörregemente), designations Ing 4, Ing 3 and Ingbat/I 19, was a Swedish Army engineer regiment, one of the few new formations raised in the 20th century. It was disbanded in 2005. The regiment was garrisoned in Boden, Sweden.

History[edit]

The regiment has its origins in the engineer companies created at Norrbotten Regiment in 1902. These companies became independent in 1904 as Boden Engineer Corps and gained the designation Ing 4 (4th Engineer Regiment). Boden Engineer Corps gained the new designation Ing 3 in 1937 and was upgraded to a regiment in 1975 and was renamed Boden Engineer Regiment.

It was then downgraded to a battalion unit again in 1994, and was renamed Norrland Engineer Corps. In 2000, the battalion became one of five battalions in Norrbotten Regiment, with the name Norrland Engineer Battalion, the designation Ing 3 was not kept, even though it was still in common use. The battalion was disbanded in 2005.
