The Zb-88 or Zbroja 88 is a main battle tank developed by Reismov. A development of the Zb-71 which itself was a licensed produced variant of the Bloodian Cz-71, the vehicle continues to serve in the Reismovi National People's Army with continued upgrades. In 1999 the vehicle was extensively upgraded into the Zb-99 after the acquisition of advanced Explosive Reactive Armour from Czenmark.
