The 13th Army Division (Swedish language: 13. Arméfördelningen ), also known as the Southern Army Division or unofficially as the Armoured Division, was a division of the Swedish Army that existed from 1914 until 1928 and again between 1941 and 2000. The division headquarters was located in Skövde, Västergötland and later in Kristianstad, Scania. The unit was disbanded as a result of the disarmament policies set forward in the Defence Act of 2000.
