Kodam XII/Tanjungpura (12th Military Regional Command/Tanjungpura), is an Indonesian Army military region command that today is responsible for the defense of the two western provinces of Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo. Kodam Tanjungpura also oversees the defense of Indonesian border region with the Malaysian state of Sarawak.

Brief history[edit]

The command traces its roots to a decree of the Chief of Staff of the Army dated 2 February 1950 which established the G Brigade of the 1st Military Area Western Kalimantan, which later became the Western Kalimantan Military Region and the 12th Military Region, which was in existence until 1985.

Since 28 June 2010, the former 6th Military Region was divided into two military regions: Kodam VI/Mulawarman responsible for the provinces of East Kalimantan, South Kalimantan, and North Kalimantan and the new Kodam XII/Tanjungpura, responsible for the provinces of West Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan. The current region serves the defense needs of the hundreds of thousands of people who live in these two provinces and the economic activities that are present there.
