Just a thought, but is Khovd the 19th fort in a chain of Chinese defences?

Ooh - naughty - it took me a while to get that one...

Yes Leman, Khovd, Hovd or known as Sangiin Kherem in Mongolian, it was a Qing fort set up in the 1760s and largely destroyed in the popular uprising against Chinese rule in August 1912. It is a purely speculative reconstruction based on similar mud brick constructions and eye witness accounts. As a principal seat of Chinese power in the region it was created as a what-if scenario for Chinese forces to repair to in the fight against the Mad Baron. It could also double as the fortress at Choir in C Eastern Mongolia. Being modular it could also serve as any number of walled towns for raids etc.

The scratchbuilt Siberian village has a real 'Fiddler on the Roof' vibe and the rough wooden fence palings can double as compounds containing yurts/gers in the suburbs of Urga...
