More importantly, though, Vietnam also puts their war with Sibir on hold to focus on the greater threat at hand. Looking at the difference in city defense, coupled with the natural terrain, I don’t see the landscape changing here without considerable loss of manpower. This is a good time for Vietnam to set the meatgrinder to neutral, seeing as they still control Urgench. This is also great news for the sub, as we will be spared several shots of border cities flipping back and forth, allowing us to focus on the bloodshed that’s sure to come in the Middle East and North Africa.
Looking at the upper right corner, it seems that Mongolia has bee-lined hovertanks, which will help delay future invasions. It remains to be seen how long that will last, but we have more important matters to attend to!
