The 6th Corps, along with the 7th Corps, of the Bosnian army was formed a little later than the first 5 Corps.

6th Corps History

The 6th Corps of the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed on 9 June 1993. Konjic became the headquarters of the 6th Corps. 6th Corps was formed from 4th Corps Northern Herzegovina Operational Group to occupy northern Herzegovina from the HVO and eventually reach the Adriatic coast. But it had little success and was disbanded in February 1994.

Some units were incorporated into the 7th Corps and the rest into the 4th Corps.
