CitarUrartu, centred in the mountains around Lake Van (in eastern modern Turkey), expanded into Mannaia to become the Kingdom of Van. This made it a dangerous rival to the Assyrians, but it was eventually conquered by the Medes. The Urartians initially used 2-horse 2-crew chariots, but later changed to Assyrian-style 4-horse 3-crew. Military organisation was similar to Assyrian. It initially depended almost entirely on provincial foot spearmen, skirmishing archers and well-regarded cavalry armed with spear and shield. Reference: Armies of the Ancient Near East N.
