Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces Order of Battle - Border Ranger Battalions.


ORDER of BATTLE
Submitted by Richard A. Rinaldi 1999


Border Ranger Battalions

These are shown in the order activated. They were formed in 1970 from the Special Forces-led CIDG camps, being converted as the Special Forces left Vietnam. Other than one in the Delta converted to mobile status before 1972 (designation unknown), these remained static units tied to their particular camp. Note that some camps may have been Mobile Strike Force camps, in which case there is no corresponding entry in the CIDG camp list.
