The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The drawing is well done with nice colors throughout,
The alternating pattern of the helicopters and tanks down the center sets off the symmetry with the rifles along the side. An interesting point as well, there are two small fighter planes off the two sides in the very middle of this war rug, with only one facing in the opposite direction of all the other machinery. The colors in the grenades is found throughout the rug with nice repeat of these colors in the bullets found along the border.
