Västernorrland Regiment with Jämtland Ranger Corps (I 21) is one of Sweden’s new regiments, although with a long history in Västernorrland and Jämtland. The regiment will be responsible for training two locally recruited infantry battalions; one in Sollefteå and one in Östersund.

The reestablishment of I 21 is part of the mandate from the Swedish government to enhance Swedish defence capability in light of the uncertain developments in the surrounding world. I 21 will conduct activities in Sollefteå as well as in Östersund through Jämtland Ranger Corps.

The regiment was reinaugurated on 16 January 2022.
