The 10th Independent Red Banner Air Defence Army (Military Unit Number 41137) was an army of the Soviet Air Defence Forces, active from 1960 to 1994. The headquarters was at Arkhangelsk, Arkhangelsk Oblast.
To cover the European North in 1958 on the basis of the White Sea Air Defense Corps, the Northern Air Defense Army was formed in accordance with the directive of the General Staff of the Air Defense Forces of June 17, 1958. The new army included:
In 1959 a Guards air defense artillery regiment was incorporated into the Northern Air Defence Corps; subsequently, the anti-aircraft missile brigade (Peninsula)]). In 1960, an air defense missile regiment (transformed into a brigade) was relocated from the Odessa Air Defense Corps to the Arkhangelsk Region with a control point in Mirny. To strengthen fighter aviation, the 524th Fighter Aviation Regiment was transferred from the Air Force of the Northern Fleet, reequipped with the Yak-25, and relocated to Letneozersky Plesetsk District.
On March 24, 1960, the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Defense Forces decided to transform the Northern Army into the 10th Independent Air Defense Army. Subordinate formations were also assigned combined-arms numbers:
