|Origin: Pakistan||Style:Red Rugs, a war rug classic. ||Tribe: Turkman|
|This red rug features bright red, orange, and teal rifles framing an assortment of weapons and military vehicles on an unusual dark blue field. There is a lot of short text throughout the field and in the helicopters. The multicolored red, orange, blue, teal, green, and pink bullets in the field make them seem almost playful.
One of the last 'red rugs' of this style.
