200th Coast Artillery (AA) Regiment

The 200th Coast Artillery (AA) (200 CA) arrived in the Philippines, in September of 1941. This anti-aircraft unit was assigned to USAFFE and ordered to provide air defenses for Clark Field, while based at Fort Stotsenburg. The 60th CA was equipped with 12 3-inch guns[?] (an older model with a vertical range of 8,200 m), .50-caliber machine guns[?], and 60-inch Sperry searchlights[?]. Sources disagree as to whether this unit had 37mm guns[?] or 24 truck-mounted 75mm guns[?].

This unit was not attached to the Philippine Coast Artillery Command.
