Politiania takes Brazillian lands in north!
Group of M1 Abrams main battle tanks with assist of M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and LAV-25 Armored personnel carriers crossed a temporary outpost of Politianian-barzillian border.
Group of soldiers took Brazillian border guards as prisoners and drove them away into the Bauxite mine in the south of Venezuelan state of Bolivar.
After crossing it, soldiers spreaded out, and marched onto enemy positions, with support of tanks and M2 Bradley vehicles.
Battle has started. 120 mm shell left the barrell of Abrams, destroying the bunker with heavy machnegun. In return, Brazilians opened fire from their artillery, massacering the infantry, and damaging some of the tanks, immoblizing one of them completely.
Air support arrived just in time - three F-16 Falcon with laser guided bombs destroyed enemy bunkers and artillery, and missiles took down helicopters heading the frontline.
Soldiers took losses, but went further. wounded and dead were transported back to the country.
Group of 15 A-10 Thunderbolt close air support aircraft was heading to Manaus
Their mission was to destroy enemy bases and bridges on Amazin river, to cripple enemy support lines, and cut retreating enemy units off on the northern bank of the river.
"Attention all units, we start show in ten seconds, prepare to engage, over"
"Roger that Anvil leader, open fire in seven, six, five...." few seconds later all planes opened fire, 30 mm cannon shredded vehicles on the bridge to the bits, and AGM-65 Maverick missiles destroyed the construction support, and whole construction fell down burying enemies in piles of scrapped and bent metal.
Same things happened with various other bridges on the Amazon.
After the escape routes were cut off completely, a massacre started.
commander Jose Ramos was one of the generals, in charge of the operation. he, personally supervised the attack on Manaus
he ordered to barrage the city with M270 Multiple Launch Rocket Systems, and bomb the most strategic positions.
After that, he sent mechanized infantry units to the town, to make sure what defences have left. Fights were very, very heavy, as almost 60 percent of the initial state of unit was depleted. Soldiers were dying on the streets, hit by sniper bullets, or blew up with Improvised Explosive Devices.
What commader thought wasnt attack on Paris by Germans in 1940, no... better said, like Stalingrad, or Berlin in 1945...
Close artillery shell explosion woke commander from the thoughts. He grabbed the radio and ordered: "All units retreat" He changed the channel on the radio and called Air Force Command. After 20 minutes, ten B-52 bombers raided the city, leaving a smoking pile of rubble and ruins after them. Soldiers reentered the city, this time with heavier support of M1 Abrams tanks, and A-10 Thunderbolts.
Still - fights were intense, enemies were counterattacking and artillery was pounding the trenches in the streets.
After 9 hours and loosing almost two divisions Manaus fell into Politianian hands.
Last big settlement to victory was Macapa, defended by armored battalion and infantry inside the town.
Infantry wasnt the problem, command was more concerned about the armored units, consisting from french, soviet, german and british tanks, all mixed up, but combined could be deadly to newly produced Abrams tanks.
Command decided it will send helicopters with ATGMs to take out as many tanks as possible, also, to provide fire support and protection for armored units.
M1 Abrams rolled quickly through the first barricde on the road, and opened fire to enemy T-72. Tank exploded with a tongue of bright, orange fire.
ATGMs mounted on one of technicals fired, destroying Bradley infntry fighting vehicle. it got shredded by 30 mm hughes autmatic cannon mounted under the cockpit of AH-64 Apache.
Battle was coming to an end.
enemies fell back using rubber boats, amphibious properties of their vehicles, and fallen trees. only some of them made it to the other side, as F-16s and A-10s were still in the air - massacering the river with missiles, cannons and bombs.
Northern Brazil fell into Politianian hands - everything north of Amazon river came under the rule of Politiania, that brought prosperity, culture and safety to the region.
All brazillian forces fell back, but left a lot of equipment...
