The Göta Engineer Regiment (Swedish language:Göta ingenjörregemente ), designation Ing 2, is a Swedish Army engineer regiment that traces its origins back to the 19th century. It is still in active service, and is currently garrisoned in Eksjö.

HistoryEdit

The regiment has its origins in the Sapper Battalion raised between 1873 and 1878. The battalion changed its name in 1893 to the Göta Engineer Battalion, and in 1902 to the Göta Engineer Corps, when it gained the designation Ing 2 (2nd Engineer Regiment). The Göta Engineer Corps was upgraded to a regiment in 1963 and was renamed Göta ingenjörregemente.

It was then downgraded to a battalion unit again in 1994, but six years later in 2000 it was upgraded to a regiment, and regained its old name. The regiment was garrisoned in Stockholm, Karlsborg before it moved to Eksjö in 1928 where it is currently garrisoned.
