Greece sends in its Air Force to start pummeling Macedonia.
Forces from Greece cross our border.25 Mar 2020
Greece now has a two pronged attack into Macedonia. We have mustered our very inadequate defense force of 1 BTR-80 and 3 Light Inf units, all other units are still in repair from the Serbian campaign in the north.
We manage to more or less hold off the main attack of the eastern prong with the help of the Garrison and artillery. We now move our defense force, the same 4 units, and the artillery to the western prong and the city of Bitola. Despite not having any money or manpower left we set DEFCON 1 and raise all military spending to max. The thought is, if we can just hold this initial thrust we can recover.
Despite our best efforts Bitola is on the verge of falling. We lack Military Goods and we have no money to purchase any more. A State of Emergency is declared, Social Services are slashed and taxes raised. State run media is urging all citizens to contribute; sacrifices have to be made if we are to survive as a nation!
Bitola is lost! We withdraw to defensive lines behind Prilep and the Coal Mines west of it.
The Greeks press forward and catch our slow moving arty, 4 of the 7 units are destroyed, but this puts the Greeks in a crossfire between the above mentioned two defense positions. As the last three arty units pull away north the Greeks realize the position they are in and pull out of the crossfire. They are now attacking each position individually.
We issue new bonds in an attempt to gain money and purchase Military Goods.30 Mar 2020
The Coal mine defensive position in falling, we can do nothing but watch as we have no bullets/ammo. We cannot hope to raise enough cash to purchase any as the price is more than we get when issuing a Bond. We do not even have enough Reserves to raise Garrison units now.
