Sunday saw the the remnants of the FSA rebellion crushed, as Russian forces made their final push to secure the capital. Over many weeks, Russian forces have battled the Free Sahrani Army to restore order and stability to the Democratic Republic of Sahrani.

I personally would like to thank everyone who participated in this campaign, and I hope you guys enjoyed as much as I enjoyed making the scenarios.
The people of Sahrani are forever in your debt.
I'd also like to thank Gelly and Knight for the effort they put in and the contribution they made to the campaign.
