IV Army Corps

IV Army Corps is a First Echelon unit of the Korean People's Army that is deployed along the DMZ where it can conduct offensive across the DMZ or provide defense in the event of an invasion. As the unit is a forward corps it is organized accordingly with four infantry divisions, and a light infantry brigade, an armor brigade, two artillery brigades, an anti-aircraft regiment, two mortar regiments, and a river-crossing regiment.

During initial offensive operations, the IV Army Corps is considered by analysts and government sources to be tasked with conducting operations against the islands of Paengyong-do, Taech'ong-do, Soch'ong-do and will support II Army Corps efforts by attacking Kanghwa-do. After the KPA significantly breaches South Korean and US defenses, the IV Army Corps will continue to support II Corps operations by operating along its western flank and by providing reinforcements as needed.

During the Korean War IV Corps performed coastal security in the P'yonyang - Chinnamp'o Area from late December 1950 until at least September 1951. The unit was comprised of the 4th Infantry Division, 5th Infantry Division, 10th Infantry Division, 26th Infantry Brigade, and the 105th Tank Division.
