The Göta Artillery Regiment (Swedish language:Göta artilleriregemente ), designation A 2, was a Swedish Army artillery regiment that traced its origins back to the 17th century. It was disbanded in 1962. The regiment's soldiers were originally recruited from Götaland, and it was also garrisoned there.

HistoryEdit

The regiment has its origins in the Artillery Regiment raised in 1636. That regiment was split into four new regiments in 1794 of which Göta artilleriregemente was one. The regiment was given the designation A 2 (2nd Artillery Regiment) in 1830. In 1893 four companies were split off to form Norrland Artillery Regiment and Karlsborg Artillery Corps (Karlsborgs artillerikår).

The regiment also changed name to 1st Göta Artillery Regiment (Första Göta artilleriregemente) in 1893, and another two companies were split off to form Småland Artillery Regiment (Smålands artilleriregemente) in 1895. The name was changed back again in 1904. The regiment was garrisoned in Gothenburg until it was disbanded in 1962.
