The 9th Parachute Chasseur Regiment (French: 9e Régiment de Chasseurs Parachutistes, 9e RCP) was an airborne unit of the French Army. It was formed during the Algerian War, during which it fought its most notable engagement: the Battle of Souk Ahras. It didn’t take part in the 1961 Algiers Putsch. The regiment took part in numerous overseas operations before it was dissolved in 1999. The regiment was the heir to the traditions, battle honours and decorations of the 9th Infantry Regiment.
