In 1963, the 16th Cavalry was redesignated as the 16th Armor. D Company, 16th Armor was the only active duty unit of the 16th Armor. The company served as one of the subordinate units of the 173rd Separate Airborne Brigade during hostilities in Vietnam from 1963-69. D/16th Armor provided the anti-tank protection for the 173rd Bde. This was the only airborne tank unit at the time as well as the only separate Tank Company in the history of the army. The company was equipped with '"Scorpions" which were air droppable Armored Personnel Carriers that were equipped with high velocity 9Omm guns. From 1963 through 1969 D/16th Armor served in every campaign which the 173rd Airborne Bde fought in. During its service in Vietnam D/16th Armor is credited with 16 Vietnam Campaign streamers as well as earning the Meritorious Commendation Medal for its valorous service. In 1969, 16th Armor reverted to the designation of 16th Cavalry and was inactivated.

On 25 March, 1987, the 16th Cavalry was withdrawn from the Combat Arms Regimental System, reorganized under the U.S. Army Regimental System and transferred to the U.S. Army Training And Doctrine command as a parent regiment for training units at Ft. Knox
