Admiral Chung Tấn Cang (22 July 1926, Gia Định – 24 January 2007, Bakersfield, California) was the commander of the Republic of Vietnam Navy from 1963-65.

Cang took over in November 1963 after Captain Hồ Tấn Quyền, a Diệm loyalist, was executed during the November 1963 coup that led to Diệm's ouster and execution.[1] Cang was one of the "Young Turks" during the era of military juntas in South Vietnam from 1963-67.
