This list represents the later more urbanised Central Asian Turkish armies that fought each other, the Later T'ang & early Sung Chinese, Tibetans, Silk Road States and Abbassid Arab armies between the 6th and 9th Centuries.
It covers the armies of the following tribes:
Western Turks (Blue Turks)
Later T'u-chueh (Eastern Turks)
As the tribes had greater contact with their 'civilised' neighbours their tactics changed, becoming more 'close-combat' orientated and the quantities of armour increased.
As with the early Central Asian Turk this list encompasses the following Geographical Boundaries:
Lake Balkhash in the northwest; Herat/Samarqand in the west; Tibetan plateau in the south; and the main Chinese Yellow River border in east.

This is the variant of the armies that were more territorial conquest orientated. They were geared up for anticipated hard-fighting & pitched battles but still with a lot of LC.
For each Bonus HC FV5, an equal number of HC FV4 must also be bought.
