|14th Army Group (1949)|
|Part of||Fourth Field Army|
|Engagements||Chinese Civil War|
In July 1949, roughly 3 months after its activation, the 14th Army Group was inactivated and converted as headquarters, People's Liberation Army Air Force.
It should be clearly noted that William W. Whitson, writing with Chen-Hsia Huang in The Chinese High Command, 1972, lists a 14th Army (rather than Army Group) under the Fourth Field Army in the June–September 1949 period, and gives its composition as the 48th Corps (142nd, 143rd, and 144th Divisions) and the 54th Corps (160th, 161st, and 162nd Divisions). He lists the commander during that period as Ch'en Ch'i-han.
