Kodam VI/Mulawarman (6th Military Regional Command/Mulawarman) is a military territorial command (military district) of the Indonesian Army. It has been in active service as the local division for the provinces of North Kalimantan, East Kalimantan and South Kalimantan (from 1958-1985 and from 2010 to present).

Brief history

The 6th MRC, then as the 10th Military Region Command (Komando Daerah Militer X) holding the Lambung Mangkurat honorific was activated in 1958 with the headquarters in Banjarmasin and serving South and Central Kalimantan, while the 9th MRC (Komando Daerah Militer IX), holding the Mulawarman honorific, was based in Samarinda and with East Kalimantan as its AOR. Both formations were raised in response to the threat faced by the Permesta revolt the same year. This format lasted until the 1984 reorganization of military regions by the Commander of the National Armed Forces, when the 6th MRC was granted the Tanjungpura honorific when it merged with the 10th and 9th MRCs with a new garrison in Balikpapan. In 2010, the INAF spilt its military region command for Indonesian parts of Borneo into two,[1][2] thus the 6th MRC, now with a smaller AOR including North, East and South Kalimantan and with its garrison still in Balikpapan, was granted the Mulawaman honorific title.
