3 Locating Regiment [Afr: 3 Opspringsregiment] was converted from the original 3 Locating Battery [Afr: 3 Opsporingsbattery], which had formed part of 4 Field Regiment (also often attached to the School of Artillery), in Potchefstroom. The regiment was the third of three dedicated regiments that provided target locating services to the SAA(Fd). The regiment provided divisional troops but was typically organised to allocate locating batteries to brigades. The battery typically comprised of an Intelligence Section, a Meteorological Section, a Radar Troop of three radar sections each with a radar set, a Sound Ranging Troop, a Survey Troop, and an Observation Troop.
