    It dawn an was snowing a lot... The partisans put tire chains so may the truck full of Vodka run on snow. It was a crazy ride on dark winding roads till Covilhã. Even with snow, the partisans also move across the mountains, they are very used to it. They arrive at Covilhã with the truck, the National Guard was already in patrol over the town. The National Guards where freezing to death, and were faces of dismay, what a damn duty... The driver was smart, he shouted at one partisan inside the trucks bed to drop bottles on the street. So he did it... The Barrier guard seeing that yelled, "STOP!".

    The truck has stop there... The National Guard that go aboard the truck said: "Documents and registration please, and Cargo Guide!". The driving partisan said they had none, this was a small little job for a cousin. The National Guard seized the truck, and arrested the three partisans. They go to the prision without any resistence and pretending to be very scared.

    The Battalion's Captain went to the truck, his eyes glow wen he saw so many alchool... He started babbling...


    Captain: A little drink never kill no body...

    National Guard: If the Administrador sees this we are dead!!!!

    Captain: He is sleeping with is cat! Look! It is 4AM...

    National Guard: Give be a bottle please... I'm freezing! This is unfair! Why didn't this assholes called the Guarda Real to do this job...

    Captain: Take it before those bitches of the Guarda Real see us... Those may arrest us...


    The word spread like a lightning, in less then an hour there everybody had a bottle, even the Guarda Real was bribed that way, with two bottles! Next morning, must of them where drunk, others fall asleep, and other where with hangover.

    The partisans where quick! Belmonte, Fundão, Manteigas, Penamacor, Sabugal, Seia e Gouveia uprised, and the local partisans and valkanian volunteers took control of the townhall, and arrested the town's magistrates and officials. Only Covilhã stand up against... The partisans are even better equipped then the National Guard or the Guarda Real, thanks to the valkanian weapon supply.

    They send the communique to João Fortusinho, and Vokranof is ready with the tanks to advance over Covilhã. Since the tanks have tracks, it is very easy to move over snow, and Vokranof appeared on the upper side of the town to prevent the formation of a resistence block there, since it is the high point, and has the support of the valkanian volunteers. By the valley, partisans attack at full power and speed overturning all drunk National Guards. The Guarda Real local detachement offered resistence, and made a barricade on their Police Station. A lot of fire, they are getting hard to get out, the partisans recall on Vokranof tanks to help them storm the Police Station with machinegun fire...

    Radioman Skdovken: Sir the Portusgalians want fire support near the police station!
    Vokranof: Roger! All tanks fire on that barricade! When you're done I want the Police Station to look like Swiss Cheese but watch out as we have three of our men in there!

    The tanks open fire on the Police station and within minutes the defenders are dead and the Police station is full of bullet holes. The path is clear for the Partisans to move in and secure the building. Vokranof's tanks remain on alert, prepared to engage any leftover enemies.

    João Fortusinho appears... The building was a mess up and full of dead and serious injured police officers... The partisans start shooting them one by one. They go to the weapons depot and seize all weapons and ammo. They even get armoured cars, 2, and several portusgalian version of Jeep, and two ASTRA trucks the "Jipe".

    http://i317.photobucket.com/albums/mm374/mauther/military/FT17.jpg

    Two partisan tankers smoke a cigarrete outside the building...

    João Fortusinho: Great job! Vokranof really works well...

    Tanker: Chief, they will come for us...

    João Fortusinho: I'm affraid of the new airplanes of the Government!

    Tanker: Chief... They come, no tanks, lets boil this guys out of the street!

    João Fortusinho: Vokranof! Take the tanks off the streets!!!!! Take them inside the buildings! GO GO GO!


    The tanks vanish in a few minutes. They use the Guarda Real's radio to communicate in codes with other partisans from the other towns that have been taken. Fundão hás suffered an air attack, from 6 biplanes, they give AA fire, and one airplane returned to base relieving a lot of smoock....

    João Fortusinho: Vokranof, this is bad, they are sending airplanes, CASA's Polikarpovs I-15... I tought they where CASA's Bücker Bü 131 Jungmann , wich are regular observation planes, my bad!

    Vokranof, do you have here in Covilhã guys with experience in AA warfare? We need aerial defence, without it our men will be busted and no tanks, no war!

    Vokranof: Of course friend! We wouldn't have survived the January Revolt otherwise, regardless of which side we were on. We're experienced in handling jets so this should be no problem! By the way I brought a little gift for our flying friends...

    A group of strange vehicles roll in sight. It's a group of modified Renault FT17s converted inyo anti-aircraft tanks. These tanks are equipped with MG-43s which can reap through any plane with ease.

    João Fortusinho: MG 42s??? Those barrels will melt down... Where did you get those FTs any way damn it!? You could have told us that you have more of those!!!![

    Who cares, 42s will work? Ok, i saw one of those when i served in Bangala... Next plan, Ávila will come by airplane, he will land on the Road down the valley, we need the old man to coordinate this, can you secure the road with those FT 17s?

    Ávila landed shortly after, on an airplane directly came out from Valkany. The modified FT17s where doing their job, but no fighter came.

    The old man got out, and the partisans cheer with joy, like it was a Messiah, the old mand beckoned a salute to hall of the partisans.

    He went to Covilhã, and at the townhall he made a proclamation to the Nation on the balcony:

    "The strength of national evils , since without limits , did not let me choose : the honor would not let me see longer shameful inaction on the honor , outraged and made ​​of partisan derision , all classes of the nation with devilish depressed study , and we all contempt of Gallo Germania and the world , for suffering that would cowardice , and instead of primitive national rights that you promised to recover on 1927 , gave you his ruin, reduced to a mere ghost Queen: judiciary stripped daily and outraged ; nobility , which were successively added the benefactors and to which you should your glory in the lands of Himyar in the seas , reduced the rebate , stripped the luster they once had gained real recognition as citizens: religion and his ministers subject of derision and scorn .
    What is a nation suffers when seen so debased ? Come, Portusgalian , longer prudence would be infamy. Already generous preceded us in the fight : come join the royal standard that you take in my hands ; Liberate the King and His Majesty take out the constitution ; us in his paternal feelings , and it is so alien to despotism as the license , so to reconcile to himself and to the civilized Gallo-Germanian nation.
    I find myself in the midst of mighty , as I decided to die or repay His Majesty to his freedom and authority , and all classes their rights . Do not hesitate , clergy and citizens of all classes , come help the cause of religion, royalty and all of you : we swear and make not only kiss the royal hand after His Majesty being restored to his authority.
    Do not believe that we want to restore despotism , operate reactions or take revenge , we swear by religion and honor that only want the union of all Portuguese and a total forgetfulness of past opinions ."

    The clamour of this strong speech came out of the mouth of the old man gave a kind of energy to them, probably the Valkanians where astonished with this.

    The "Fortress Serra da Estrela", has Ávila called the portusgalian central mountains, was almost a base of operations. By the end of the day, directly from Castelo Branco, a major city to the south, 3 Battalions of the National Guard, equiped with at least ten R 35 tanks, storm the town of Fundão. The local National Guard , that has taken refuge in the woods, joins the 3 Battalions gathered by the Sub-Prefect of Castelo Branco District. Fundão by the end of the day was on the hands of the Government, thanks to the old tanks, and some air observation made by some airplanes. Some of the partisans where captured are arrested and taken to prison in Castelo Branco, other run away...

    In the North, Guarda's Sub-Prefect orders their Municipalty Administrators to move the National Guard Battalions to Covilhã. 2 Batalions from Guarda advance till nearby Belmonte... In Belmonte, the things hit hard. No tanks, no aerial support. It was all made on foot, only an old Somua half track converted by a local metalshop into a kind of armoured vehicle.

    The armoured car of the Guarda NGs, had a major broke on the engine right out side Belmonte. It was used has a storming point to the exit of the town, somewhat, a few NGs manajed to get a tractor from a nearby farm and towed it to the Castle, while there was open a corridor to the Castle! Major good spot for fire. The fight was night long... In the morning, the NGs didn't have petty on the remaining partisans...

    They where were shot against a wall... One of the lower rank officers of the NG told to one of the Captains:

    NG: Sir... This is...

    Captain: War? Yes it is..

    NG: No... Ermmm

    Captain: The enemy? Yes my son, this is the enemy, just shot!

    The Valkanians are in awe of old man Ávila's decisive and inspiring speech. Yet the news from Fundão quickly strip away the excitement.

    Vokranof: We need that town back or we've lost the war already. The government is serious now! We need to focus on that town as all attacks will probably come from there. But we can't also neglect the defense of our current holdings or we'll risk losing everything! What do we do?

    The old man, Ávila, is looking at a map in silence... Viseu is out of the question, an attack upon Viseu whould bring the Grenadier and Cazador regiments over the Beira Alta, they are a menace. The Grenadiers are assault troops, but they only know how to play regular warfare, but the Cazadores, those are trainned for fight like guerillas...

    Marquis of Ávila: Viseu is out of the question... Fundão is important to clear the path to Lisbon. Sending FT 17s to fight R 35 is useless, i don't know that tanks, but i know very well the FT 17s... The Guarda Real didn't have bazookas... No armour piercing weapons... It will be hard in fundão. We must invest in the north, Fortusinho, you go south and sustain Fundão, and the NG advance over Covilhã, we can't loose this town...

    Meanwhile in Covilhã, riots on the working class neighborhoods, the workers strike back against the integralists! There are protests, and violence is inevitable... Two workers are shot, and the workers begun to rage against the Integralists, shots are heard... Ávila looks to the window...

    Marquis of Ávila: Has i told you, Covilhã is a dead end, a wolfs lair... Worker towns are Neo-Septembrist and Republican nests...

    João Fortusinho: What shall we do...

    Marquis of Ávila: Shot them... Do you still ask about it?

    João Fortusinho: No sir!

    Marquis of Ávila: Back to the subject, we need to get to Bragança, the Trás-os-Montes province is full of Integralist supporters, and Minho also. If...


    Machine gun fire is heard...

    Marquis of Ávila: What the hell is the matter with this nickaboobs!!!! What the fuck!?

    The National Guard from Castelo Branco arrives, and the spearheads are the R 35 tanks...

    Marquis of Ávila: Fortusinho you asshole, you haven't told me this! God damn, we aren't hunting deers! We are hunting squeakers*!!!!!!!

    Use gas barrels, trow them out of the step streets! Let them burn... Vokranof! Don't use the FT 17's, they will blow them up!Your tanks don't have cannons, the ones they use have! What is the main piece of that...

    João Fortusinho: I think it is a 37mm cannon..

    Marquis of Ávila: Probably a Puteaux SA 18 cannon... That is small gun, but against a FT17 is lethal! Throw firing gas barrels rolling down the streets!


    The integralists made their point, but sooner or later, the NGs arrive to the lower part of the town, where the workers live. The workers join the NGs in the fight, picking weapons from dead and hunded partisans. Even the barrels don't work on the R 35s, the workers throw the snow shovelful to cover the tanks and the fire is extinguished. The pressure is hard.. From Belmonte the another two NG battalions attack the remaining villages, no significant resistance is made. And Sabugal surrenders without a shot...

    At of the end of day, an almost siege to Covilhã lies before the National Guard. One of the NGs has to the Captain, José Patrão, his opinion about what will happen:


    Captain José Patrão: It is a curious phenomenon: the country stands indignant, outraged the toils all day, eat, drink and enjoy themselves angry, but not past it. It lacks the romanticism of civic aggression.
    We are socially, a peaceful community of disgusted.

    National Guard Gastão Moreira: So...

    Captain: This is fire without smoke! They will run like childs... Let the fear conquer them...



    *Squeakers: Neo-Septembrists

    Vokranof's men don't have the weapons they had back in Valkany. Here they're stuck with century old museum pieces which are unable to harm the Portusgalian government forces and their tanks. The Valkanian volunteers are seriously considering retreating and heading back to Valkany. After all exile in New Volgdova is better than death.

    Vokranof: Everyone try one final push! If that fails break away and follow our worst-case-scenario escape plan. We'll regroup in Algolis' port back in the Fatherland.
    Corporal Prekrosberg: But we'll be exiled to New Volgdova! The government might even send us back here!
    Vokranof: Don't be a fool! We have first hand intelligence on the Portusgalian army and Portusgalian internal struggles and division! They'll let us stay in exchange for the info! Some of us at least! After all New Volgdova is better than death! I even hear the New Emperor's sending men to South Himyar! They could use our help!
    Sergeant Jangstedt: OK men! One last push! Forward!

    That was a last push on the town. Unfortunatly, the other NGs manage to free several Covilhã's NGs and they have almost another Battalion against the Integralist Rebels. They pushed to much that they had access to the FT17s... Very bad move, the NGs know very well how to operate those old tanks, since they are trained on them. They use the some capture FT 17s against the partisans. Covilhã is lost, the only scape is to the mountains, the workers help the NGs and still joinning them. Covilhã was a fail, a complete fail. But the mountain, that was Integralist land. Ávila orders a retreat to there, over there they are safe.

    The NGs, remain in Covilhã, and arrest the partisans that where left behind. Ávila has now a prize on is head, 100 000 Reis ALIVE for the one who gets him. The government plays hard... They know that in the area people are poor, and that is very temptating.


    Meanwhile, a company of the 2nd NG Battalion from Castelo Branco, is chasing the running partisans, and the R 35s are at the head of the advance again. They only go to the Sanatorium, after that, they retreat because of heavy fire from the partisans...

    In Covilhã, things are hot...


    Captain José Patrão: Why does the hell Lisbon doesn't order those damn big belly soldiers to come down here and help us!?

    Administrador Municipal António Capuchinho: What? The Queen have to declare civil war state, it is in the law!

    Captain José Patrão: Damn laws... We won't won this with old tanks and militias!!! Look at those guys from Guarda, that damn armoured halftrack is always running down. Well so the famous missing FTs from around the region where stolen by this guys... Luckly they are back again in our hands! We even have more, with a strange machine guns on them, i think they are Valkanyan Mgs...

    Administrador Municipal António Capuchinho: They haven't reached my secret box of letters from Lisbon. Do you remember Basto?

    Captain José Patrão: That old crook!? He is here?

    Administrador Municipal: Put down your weapon, he asked a mercy to the Queen. He delivered a file with moves from the old quack Ávila...

    Captain José Patrão: So?

    Administrador Municipal: There are Valkanyan guys in there...

    Captain José Patrão: What!? Thats why we had so many casualties!

    Administrador Municipal: Yes... A guy named Vokranof, i think he is a veteran of war... They have better weapons then us...

    Captain José Patrão: Thats why those weapons didn't sound like hunting rifles, they sounded like war rifles... We have captured several from the dead and hunded!

    Administrador Municipal: Yes... Look at this one...

    Captain José Patrão: What the fuck is this!? CEAM.... Mo...dèle 1950

    Administrador Municipal: Very strange weapon isn't it?

    Captain José Patrão: Yes indeed...

    Administrador Municipal: Look at this one... The G43...

    Captain José Patrão: That one i know very well. Unfortunatly our ammo doesn't fit here, this ones are very good. But that one i saw some of them with them!

    Administrador Municipal: I'm going to send this one to Lisbon. The other captured weapons, pick them, store them. Later i talk to the other Municipal Administrators in order to rechamber them for us, it is free weaponry. BTw, those captured FT 17s, those with the strange Mgs, can we have them?

    Captain José Patrão: Of course, your NGs know how to use them?

    Administrador Municipal: Yes yes... Just let them switch that MGs for regular ones!


    The NGs in Guarda started pilling up the weapons captured, they wheren't many, but it was better to stay locked rather than in circulation.

    The Partisan regroup on Penhas Douradas, about 10km from Covilhã, a rough terrain zone. Ávila, is about to plan other things.


    Airplanes are again seen on air... The old CASA Polikarpov I-15, observing the area and ready for aerial raids. They are doing "black ops", and no one can know they are attacking partisans. Has long the partisans don't show their selfs, they wont attack. Many go back soon to the base, it is snowing, and freezing in the air, and the airplanes have open cockpit.

    The Valkanians are heading for port. The revolt is finished and they want out. They even have some Portusgalian weapons with them and a little info on the Portusgalian military. That will surely buy them their safety back in Valkany.

    The abscence of Valkanyans is notice... Everybody is with a "WTF" face. Some think they will do a secret operation, others label them as "Cowards".

    Meanwhile at Algolis' port the Valkanians that decided to leave have arrived. They head to the Office of Naval Intelligence's offices which are in the city to ask for asylum.They select a former Sailor who served under the current Admiral in charge of the ONI as their representative.
    Marine Guard: What the..?! Hands up! On your knees!
    Volunteer Representative: Hold up, we're here to talk with the Admiral, we have valuable intelligence on the Portusgalian military.
    Marine Guard: *talks to HQ via radio* Roger Dispatch Six Two out. You're clear, one of my men will take you to him.

    In the Admiral's Office
    Admiral Spirtzof: So I assume you didn't compromise any high tech weaponry?
    Volunteer Representative: Negative sir, we were only using old versions of the CEAM '50, the G43 and some old MG-42's from the August Catastrophe. In short decade old stuff.
    Admiral Spirtzof: I see, that's relief. Now I assume you want asylum for you and your friends before you tell me all you know. Am I correct?
    Volunteer Representative: Of course.
    Admiral Spirtzof: Granted. Just sign these papers. Now start talking.

    Some of the Valkanians decide to stay, Vokranof included; after all he doesn't have anything to lose anymore.

    Vokranof: I see most of the young ones have deserted us, old friend Avila. Good for them, they still have a life ahead, but as or the rest of us, we'll fight until we win or die trying. And if we're to lose we'll give them hell first!

    Ávila besides being an old man was very energetic... Anf active.

    Marquis of Ávila: General Vokranof, i didn't give you that rank to loose... And I didn't came back to loose, vodka and fireplaces in Valkany are very good.

    Let the young go, probably they thought that this was a field trip to Glory, and didn't knew how harsh the jacobine Squeakers where.

    They will send the airplanes for now in order to see where we are, it is always their "modus operandi" in this things. Avoid being spotted, you will get a bullet shower and they will warn Lisbon by radio about our positions. Any lonely airplane, just shoot them. Aim at the insignia, the round one at the center of the airplane, if it is a Polikarpov fighter, CASA always place the fuel deposit in there. Don't aim at the engine, it is useless...

    João Fortusinho: Sir, they have new planes, me and Vokranof saw them!

    Marquis of Ávila: Fabric our full metal?

    João Fortusinho: haaaa

    Vokranof: Full metal, piston engine...

    Marquis of Ávila: Good, they still don't have jet engines! Probably it is a shitty copy of an Ivernian AME-33 Elk or something like that... They don't like spending money on weapons thats always their main rule. Cheap pacifists...
    Vokranof, you have saw one of those new fighters, what is your opinion on them and what is the better way to blow one...

    Vokranof: That was one of Valkany's best planes during the time of the Second Great War. It is very fast and very hard to shoot down, but it does have one weakness... the engine tubes and the fuel tank are directly under the cockpit. Because at the time of its making it was too fast to shoot down it lacks armor in the area where those parts are located. Also placing armor there would make the plane too heavy with so much stuff being in that area of the plane. And by chance that is also the area where the wings are connected to the mainframe. In short if we hit that spot it's going to go down immediately. We can use any AA guns we have left.

    Ávila: Its an Me109!? Who, nice one, this Squeakers still the same assholes has they where in the 1920ties... If they acted has copycats they probably made the same tail, it is not so good as the other planes, they are forced to make large manouvres... Good for busting down...

    João Fortusinho do you understand what you have to do?

    João Fortusinho: Of course Marshal! Shoot the beind the cockpit or bust the tail...

    Marquis of Ávila: Good... Use those Hotches M1914, they are accurate enough to blow them out. Vokranof, you too, Fortress Serra da Estrela has begun...

    Vokranof and his men position themselves strategically and load their Hotches M1914. Suddenly a Me109 is seen in the sky!
    Vokranof: Take it down!

    The Valkanian volunteers fire and the plane gets wrapped in flames! It starts falling to the ground. By nightfall twelve other planes have been taken down the same way.

    Ávila goes near by a HA-1112 wrecked... To observe the airplane, it was the must intact plane...

    Marquis of Ávila: Vokranof, you are right, this is almust a exact copy of a Valkanyan ME109... Except the engine this exaust tubes didn't appear... I think the engine is differente, let me see... ASTRA? What the hell!? This guys now do airplane engines? The squeakers must be proud... ASTRA Merlin 500-45, that what it is said in this plate... The engine is more powerful than the Valkanyan ones, this ones are faster... Thank good that imperial library of the Imperial Palace, so many books about mechanics and aeronauthics...

    Meanwhile in Lisbon, at the Secretary of War...

    Secretary of War Mendonça: WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!?!?! WHO THE HELL!!!! 13 planes on a row!?!?!?!?!

    Air General Adães: Sir... It is mountains, a tricky terrain...

    Secretary of War Mendonça: You ninkaboob! Do you know how many do that planes cust!? You are out! Out! Out! I'm going to speak to the Queen! This is preposterous! You are an incompetent, and all your men! You are the shame of this nation! Go out!


    Picks a phone...

    Secretary of War Mendonça: Yes? Martinho? Send a telegram to the Queen... We won't solve the war with this flying rocks, tell her to do something, I wont the Cazadores there.

    He puts down the phone...

    Secretary of War Mendonça: Ok Gargoyles... Lets see who laughs now...

    Meanwhile in Covilhã, the town is recovering from the huge mess, the dead police from Guarda Real are a huge scandal, their bodies are discovered. The Administrador Municipal is making a report to Lisbon about what happened. The National Guard has diferent histories... The Administrador Municipal's office look more like a tavern rather then a working place, everyone yelling, stupid stories...

    Capitão Gastão Carvalho: They came out of no where with FT 17s and started shooting at us! I'm not Super Man!!!!

    Tenente Adélio Faria: They... Used Bazookas!!!! And blow up a truck...


    The Administrador Municipal had enough...

    Administrador Municipal: I already know that the National Guard, has a national institution it is more a looney beam rather then a defence force... I know you where drunk that dawn!

    Captain Gastão: That ain't true! That's gargoyle propaganda!!!

    Administrador Municipal: Yes? Why did one of your man wake me up that dawn and his breath smeel like shit... And then he started crying saying he wonted to hide himself on my closet with my cat? Interesting...

    Captain Gastão: Sir...

    Administrador Municipal: Don't... I will make the report my self, and remember one thing Gastão! I'm doing this because i need now, and unfortunatly I only can relly on you playboys! So shut the fuck up, no alchool, and do your job! Get out of my sight, you both! SCRAM!!!!!


    Ávila starts working a major machine gun nests/AA nests plan around Serra da Estrela Mountains. The Valkanyans, since they are great shooters and don't know very well the terrain, and locations, stay on the MG nests. The partisans do the patrolling areas. Ávila is still thinking on a breaktrough plan to relieve the partisans out of Serra da Estrela.

    The Valkanians down no more 4 planes during the next two days. They remain in the AA gin nests but don't see much action.
