On the basis of the order of the Central Administration of the Convoy Guard of the Far Eastern Republic, a convoy party was formed in 1922 in the city of Blagoveshchensk under the Central Administration of the Convoy Guard of the Far Eastern Republic. Upon the completion of the formation, on April 20, 1922, the party was relocated to the city of Vladivostok. This date became the day of the military unit 7482 formation.
After the end of the Great Patriotic War, the military unit, among other tasks, accomplished a function of guarding Japanese prisoners of war captured during the war with Japan in 1945. In 1951, the 241st Convoy Regiment was transformed into the 60th Convoy Guard Detachment of the Khabarovsk Territory Regional Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR. In 1968, it was renamed the 537th Convoy Regiment of the Interior Ministry of the USSR. On December 25, 1970, the military unit was awarded the Colours of the 537th Convoy Regiment of internal troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR.
In 1998, the 537th Convoy Regiment was transformed into the 336th Separate Battalion. From then onward, military unit 7482 has been performing the tasks of guarding and ensuring service and fighting activities of the Eastern District of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. In 2016, the battalion was renamed the 336th Guard and Support Separate Battalion of the Eastern District of the National Guard Troops of the Russian Federation.
