The Colonarius Mk1 was the main battle tank used by the Morstaybishlian Empire from 1984 until 2012 where it was replaced by the Colonarius mk2. It succeeded the Khadgar model used in the Auroran Imperial War. The Mk1 is still widely used by the Royal Armed Forces of the Empire, although they are expected to be fully phased out by 2025.
