Operation: Blunting Pharaoh's Sword
(Another Screenshot fail by me here basically they declared war on the Israelis and gave my cassus belli I'm not going to turn that down am I?
Field Marshall Mongomery's Forces had been on stand down for little over two months after the defeat of the Ethiopians, When a light Aircraft was spotted heading towards the airstrip outside his semi-refurbished HQ just outside Addis Abba. After noticing the Israeli markings, The Field Marshall sent his aid to bring the pilot to his office...
"So old chap what brings an Israeli down to the newest piece of British territory?"
"Field Marshall my name is Major Tzahal Akim of the Israeli Airforce 17th Squadron... and I bring urgent news"
"Hmmm let me guess those blasted Egyptians have moved into land that doesn't belong to them, yes?"
"What? How did you know this?"
"Well friend between you and me London has got a bit sick of the Egyptians rebuffing our honest trade offers all the time and in times like these resources are scarce your country has probably been experiencing it yourselves. Well to cut a probable long explaination short we've had members of the SAS behind their lines since we beat these Ethiopians two months ago... its amazing what cutting half the soldiers in a Barracks throats can do to moral. The Egyptians probably thought it was your operatives..."
"Well Field Marshall not to sound out of place but it seems we could help each other, we can't handle the full Egyptian Army ourselves its 4 times the size of ours... and our operatives tell us those 'Trade offers' were interested in the Egyptian oil fields. My government brings you this offer you push south from Sudan split there forces and if this goes to plan we'll halt march at the Nile. You get the Western Oil fields we get the Eastern ones..."
"Hmmm I should beable to get away with it... The Prince of Wales is in Israel we could attack and say that we were going in to stop harm coming to the Royals... You've got a deal old chap the 1st British Expeditionary Task Force will deploy and hit the southern border"
The two men saluted each other out of pure respect... The Israeli jumped back in his plane and began the long flight back to Israel and Monty began mobilising the troops.
Less than two weeks later - The Infantry had out done the tanks which had just about all broke down on the way.
"Should we wait for the tanks sir?"
"No we need to shock them we need to hit fast before they notice us on the border... We don't want the Israelis to beat us to the capital do we?"
"No sir!"So the B.E.T.F. steamed forward into the Egyptian desert...The Israelis for their part unleashed the wrath of moses on those damn Egyptians... The SAS must have done better work against the moral of the Egyptians than originally thought? Who knows...Sick of the wait - and the desert - Monty authorised a daring spearhead into Egyptian lands... Intell had informed him that most of the Egyptian army was indeed facing the Israelis so he told the 1st, 2nd, 9th, 14th Infantry Divisions to assault up the main highway leading to the capital and take whatever supplies were needed from the foes they slew and the citys they stormed...Once again Special Forces better trained than anything the Egyptians should have were surrounding the capital... This time the B.E.T.F. had prepared for them... The SAS had done more than go in and scare some frightful soldiers... They had used the agents Monty told the Israelis about - backed up by their mentors of course - to infiltrate the Egyptians best forces ready to turn their guns round as soon as they saw the B.E.T.F. it worked perfectly(I actually did only attack the capital with 7 Saracens and I had about 14 Special forces surrender to me and god knows how many Garrisons... so all those British flags are defected units. You can see the units I assaulted with at the coast I did this to stop Israelis getting more territory than they deserved lol)The capture of the Capital broke the back of the Egyptians, the Israelis had occupied more territory than was agreed on though, but the British still got control of the Oil fields. Although Monty was willing to let the breaking of the deal go...Was the Prime Minister?
RP off a second... I've taken way more casualties than I would like. Although getting 14 units of Special forces is decent i've lost so much crap that has defected on 4% hp or Garrisons
Its slightly annoying meh I should beable to find some RP way to account for it.
Right to keep all the people that are reading this informed.
West Germany has turned into a beast (without ANY help from me or the rest of NATO from what i've seen though the French have helped a little)
List of West Germany annexations in order of them happening:
They are now bashing on the door of the Soviet Union's colonies but - albeit with massive losses - the Russians are keeping them back...
America had turned in on itself, Just sits there collecting money. Protected by more ships than I thought was possible. If you destroyed everyone without loss you would probably take their MAR to 0% there are that many.
The Chinese have taken Hong Kong the ba*tards! gonna make them pay when I get Chieftans and Jaguar Fighter Bombers... and finally fully stablise my economy i'm nearly there finally self sufficient in electric power will raised prices lol
Alot of Frances colonies have become Independant if any of mine try there are gonna learn the hard way this Brit ain't givin' up anything! (except Hong Kong and Gibraltar... For now lol)
Oh and I wish the Belgians and Dutch would go to war with someone... they've got massive amounts of troops and do sod all with them! It slows me down when I move over to central Europe lol
Well thats my AAR up to now in a nutshell gonna go and exploit those oil fields now and earn some cash
