Despite their dire straits, Armenia still has a nearly full carpet! Unfortunately, it's about the size (and effectiveness) of a welcome mat, but at least Kuchum will have something to wipe his feet on as he moves toward the ancient capital.
Yerevan and Bukhara are both on borrowed time. Bukhara may look safe, but that backdoor squad out of Carrollton will show no mercy. Even so, bold 'troopers have drifted over the mountains to sack citadels outside Tashkent and Merv, tearing down the ancient fortresses in a suicidal declaration of resistance to the hordes of robots and mech artillery funneling south.
