This is a very early example of a Bomber/Helicopter/Tank rug with some interesting details. The tanks have unique jagged teeth on their treads and the planes have strange 'squiggly' lines on their wings.
The blue in the field of the rug is a very nice, rich color and the green is a very classic Zakini color. There are what appear to be rows human figures holding birds at the top and bottom of the rug. White birds are placed throughout the design.
There are some small dark ink stains.
