Most of the cities here that were in the black fall: Yerevan, Yervantashat and Ghazni. Only Carrollton holds. The Caucasus is almost completely secured and Pedro has a yet another fine addition to his collection of capital cities. Further east, Sibir does its best to hold Kabul and Nishapur. These mountain passes are the gates which prevent the vomit green flood from spewing out onto the flat deserts beyond. Or, well, they would be gates if the Brazilian army wasn't full of paratroopers and XCOMs.
