The ZKS-76M4 "Kilrati IV" is a main battle tank of the Unified Armed Forces that entered service alongside the ZKS-96M, replacing the ZKS-76M2 in motorized regiments. It is bulkier than the ZKS-96M, but also carries a heavier load of weaponry. It is optimised in the support role for infantry and mechanized force in both open ground and urban warfare. It pioneers several new advances in armour and counter-measures for the Unified Army. While it retains the designation of the ZKS-76, it has been developed to a point that it only barely resembles the original ZKS-76 and is considered a different tank. While lighter than most tanks of it's class it is capable of going toe-to-toe with most heavier main battle tanks.
