GURKHA SOLDIERS ARE THE ONES I WANT ON MY SIDE. THEY ARE BRAVE AS LIONS, FIERCE AS TIGERS, THEY GET RESPECT AND FEAR FROM THEIR ENEMIES, AND THEY ARE INVALUABLE ALLIES. DID YOU KNOW... WHEN A GURKHA DRAWS HIS "KHUKURI" ITS FOR BLOOD, AND he, CAN NOT RETIRE THE WEAPON WITHOUT IT, BE HIS OWN BLOOD, OR THAT OF THE ENEMY!
