Komando Daerah Militer IV/Diponegoro or KODAM IV/Diponegoro is a military area command (effectively a military district) of the Indonesian Army. It covers the provinces of Central Java and Yogyakarta on the island of Java. It is named for the Java War hero Prince Diponegoro. It appears to have been first established in 1959, and inherited the heritage of the former Diponegoro Division. Diponegoro Division personnel have been very significant in the history of the Indonesian Army. Among its early officers were Sarwo Edhie Wibowo, who served as battalion and regimental commander in the division from 1945-53. Former commanders of the division include Soeharto. Divisional personnel, including Lieutenant Colonel Untung Syamsuri, were involved in the 30 September Movement events of 1965. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was also member of this KODAM when he took command of KOREM 072/Pamungkas at Yogyakarta during his military tenure.

As of 1965, the Diponegoro Division had three infantry brigades, the 4th/Dewa Ratna, 5th/Lukitasari, and 6th/Tri Shakti Balajaya. The headquarters of the 4th is located in Tegal, Central Java, the 5th was in Semarang, Central Java, and 6th was in Solo, Central Java.[2] Among those three, the 4th is the currently active brigade, after the disbanding of the 5th and transfer of the 6th to KOSTRAD.
