The Colonarius mk2 is the current main battle tank used by Great Morstaybishlia. It's one of the most sophisticated and thus expensive tanks used in Urth. The Colonarius mk2 is currently in the process of replacing the previous main battle tank, the Colonarius mk1 by 2025. However, the Colonarius mk1 is still in wide use by the Royal Armed Forces of the Empire.
