Justinian the Mighty Posted August 26, 2011 Report Share Posted August 26, 2011 It had been several months since the English leased land in Porkkala to use as an RAF Base in Porkkala Finland. During the era of the Anglo-Russian alliance Slavorussia’s military commanders did not view the base was a threat. That all changed however, after the British government began making aggressive moves toward Slavorussia and its allies. When the British leaders started to show their true colors military intelligence satellites began monitoring the base. They found evidence of long range strategic bombers presumably on reserve to attack Slavorussia’s heartland. The threat of English aggression now had to be dealt with. Military forces in southern Finland began secret mobilizations on the eve of Prime Minister Putin’s scheduled meeting with England’s Foreign Minister. Shortly after wake-up call Slavorussian soldiers under command of Major Alexei Sergeievich Lisov received their orders; if the English refused to evacuate the base in a timely manner then the army would surround the base and force the English out of Finland. “So what if the English refuse?” Alexei gazed at the columns of troop transports lining up inside the base “Does the General Staff have a plan?” The old, cadaverous general leaned removed his cap and ran his wrinkled hand through his thinning white hair. “If England doesn’t respond to reason then they’ll respond to force. General Menshikov and General Gulyas agreed that you’re the best person for the job. Your regiment will need to be ready to move on short notice can you handle that?” “Certainly.” “You might be ordered to storm the base, but I must stress, do nothing until the Prime Minister orders it. If everything goes as planned your boys won’t have to lift a finger, understand?” “Da, General.” “Make your country proud, Major.” Putting his hat back on the General saluted Alexei as Alexei did the same. The two men parted ways just as a fleet of transport helicopters arrive. ---------- The next day negotiations are not going as planned. Prime Minister Putin and General Gulyas attempt to convince England’s Prime Minister that the situation can only end one way, but England seems determined to maintain its foothold in Slavorussia’s backyard. Technicians at the Lieto AFB fuel Su-35 fighters and Tu-22 bombers and prepare them to take off if they’re needed. Later a dispatch goes out to the Finnish government to request that they halt all civilian air traffic over Porkkala. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
