While the attrition of Sweden seems to be a long and hard struggle, Portugal gave up pretty quick and we actually managed to capture a significant chunk of the northern part of the country. We will now start an operation aiming at capturing Porto and the surrounding cities. Operation Atlantic: Conquest of Portugal
The Portuguese have retreated most of their troops around Lisbon. We will attempt to take advantage of this and mount an invasion from the north. Our first objective is taking Porto and the surrounding region. After that we will continue moving south and take out the rest of Portuguese forces. Our first wave will be made exclusively of Special Forces.

A long and bloody campaign. Most of the fighting was done in and around Lisboa. We lost a lot but I simply loved the way it played out. I was fought back twice and still managed to take them out. Just loved it. Losses amounted to 40 units on our side and 301 on the Portugese side. Now we are focusing our effort on Sweden.
