This is not a bad template, for a major military campaign within the Imperial Empty Quarter.
(An alternate universe Empty Quarter: too many Hindi, Vilani and Bwap to make this a perfect fit.)
An interesting consideration: who gets to play the hardcore Emperors, Stalin and Putin?
Looking at this from another perspective, the video provides good food for thought for any really troublesome Imperial border zone… as well as typical Imperial military errors. “Sending armoured columns into a rebel city stuffed with anti-armour weaponry? Not the brightest decision ever made…”
A bonus video, with an anti-emu attitude I can sympathize with.
