Emergency bulletin from the People's Commisariat for Infrastructure and Transportation...
El Presidente is dead!
Treachy in Chipolte as Admiral Ken assassinates El Presidente only for El Presidente's remaining palace guards to kill the Admiral in return.
Meanwhile, peasant farmers murdered in cold blood by the army whilst tending what remains of our glorious nation's crops.. Photographs of the 'Chipolte Massacare' are circulating in the People's Star, Commrade Widdlargo and loyal commrades of our hard working Transport Ministry attempted to defend peasants from El Presidente and the army's butchery!
El Presedente is dead, now is the time to launch a general strike, and overthrow this corrupt regime!
Workers of Dyspespia unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains!
Every modern vehicle got knocked out- bar one Saladin. 1 Centurion III 1 Saladin 1 Ontos plus sundry WW2 surplus. Ken got chased by mortar bombs, dodging every one but the last... Ken'a armoured cars killed Alan, but then Alan's troops destroyed the A/Cs with a flamethrower. ken's Meteor ruled the skies- rocketing everything in sight. Dave's M19 mowed down the whole Presidential guard heavy weapons company, bar a mortar, in one burst, but then the Ontos got it.
We are nicely set up for a follow up , as there is now a vacancy at the top...... Additional spice is what the Presidential Guard left the table with. They have holed up in the resort island of Gantockia.......
In general , most of the kit is the same, but tanks have moved on a bit. eg- Centurion MkIII 20pdr is gun class -1 - subtract 2 from the score needed for Gun class 1 . Bear in mind this is probably the only tank with a fully stabilised gun at the time. Armour should be A+1 - ie as A class but add 1 to the score needed.
JS 4- Gun class as per the WW2 122mm, which it was, armour A+2.
As the last remaining member of the government alive in the capital, I have been named acting President until new elections can be held. In order to protect our citizens from the terrorists hiding in Gantockia, all access to the capital is now restricted. The Capital will be secured by loyal forces and comrades in the Dyspepsia Bulldosser works. General Brian and the remainder of the former presidential guard have been named enemies of the state and it is the duty of all decent citizens to hinder their dastardly plots at every possible juncture.
I call on the remaining loyal members of our glorious navy and airforce to join me in securing the safety of our citizens.
