The 7th Tank Division (Chinese: 坦克第7师) was formed on September 10, 1968 from 2nd Independent Tank Regiment, 233rd Tank Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment from 28th Army Division, 312th Tank Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment from 107th Army Division and 398th Tank Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment from 193rd Army Division.

As of September 12, 1969, the division was composed of:

  • 25th Tank Regiment (former 2nd Independent Tank Regiment);
  • 26th Tank Regiment (former 233rd Tank Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment);
  • 27th Tank Regiment (former 312th Tank Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment);
  • 28th Tank Regiment (former 398th Tank Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment).

In April 1976 26th Tank Regiment was detached from the division and renamed Tank Regiment, 69th Army Corps. In March 1983, Armored Infantry Regiment and Artillery Regiment were activated.
