Cambodia's military ranks are set to receive a further influx of new troops, including 350 destined for the Prime Minister’s Bodyguard Unit, according to official documents that surfaced recently online.

According to a decree signed by the premier on July 21, the Ministry of Defence was given permission to recruit 500 soldiers – 150 as infantry troops for the Special Military Zone, which covers Phnom Penh, Kandal and Kampong Chhang, with the rest designated as personnel for the Bodyguard Unit, which on September 4 celebrated 26 years since its formation.

The news, however, comes amid a notable increase in public military exercises – including the recent deployment of boats, helicopters and troops near the Cambodia National Rescue Party’s capital headquarters...http://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/h ... pand-ranks

They aren't just bodyguards, they are an elite army branch and perform other duties. Plenty were stationed up at Preah Vihear during the border conflict with Thailand.

I heard that in exchange for Ream Park (protection from the Cambodian courts) they got loads of uniforms, motorbikes, cars, guns, etc. from the Chinese. About the time I heard this a high up American official was in PP and I saw all the new Chinese equipment they had gotten. Lots of black weapons, tactical uniforms and new bikes.

They got all that new equipment around the same time all the other military did, just after the 2013 elections. The deal between the Bodyguard Unit and the Chinese company happened in 2010.
