39th Army (People's Republic of China)

History

The 39th Army was a military formation of the People's Volunteer Army (Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) or Chinese Communist Forces (CCF)) during the Korean War. It comprised the 115th, 116th, and 117th Divisions. [ [http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/books/korea/20-2-1/sn39.htm Appleman, Roy E. "South to the Naktong, North to the Yalu", pg 768] ]

Current

The unit appears to still be active as the 39th Group Army in the Shenyang Military Region. [ [http://www.sinodefence.com/organisation/groundforces/default.asp PLA Ground Forces] ] 39th Group Army has more main battle tanks than any other Group Armies in China, as it was expected to counter the threat of Soviet armor forces in the Far East. Along with 38th Army stationed near Beijing, this unit is given the best equipment and training available.
