Ft Gutan, Panama
B-58 Hustler with electronic and visual recon pods took off flying over VZ and part of the north section of Brazil. Sending information to Brazil military to utilize to fight Al-Kabab.Escort with staggered F-35A on path. The B-58 approached at 600 mph, accelerating to 1300 mph over target area. Sending info in real time with data links to Brazilian military and Ft Sherman and Ft Gutan.

The Brazilian military did receive the data from the CofC's B-52, but Brazilian technicians discovered that the CofC Data Link was accidentally sent on a open and unsecured broadcast, Brazilian intel worries that AL-Kabab and any defected Venezuelan military units may have easily intercepted that signal.

Opps, guess then Al-Kabab will now know they are going to take a beating, a serious beating. They know that their positions and battle groups are identified and located, to be targeted. Iím sure they have that sinking feeling in their gut. Oh look, some of them have already turned around running back to VZ. So the remaining Al-Kabab should be an easier Military opponent for the Canadian and Brazilian forces.

Brazil
Al-Kabab has several groups heading into Brazil from VZ, on horseback...well horse, mule, donkey. Tried to get a Zebra from the zoo, but citizens broke in at the same time carried lead it away for Zebra steaks. The animal are carrying m.g., ammo, food??? haha, They cam across a check point at a road manned by Brazil Army near where the trail crosses the road. The Brazil soldiers were talking, smoking relaxing and reading. Not much traffic on the road as the last car went through 20 minutes earlier
. Whoosh, RPG hits barrel, with metal and flame spreading, scaring the crap out of the Brazilians. Took them several moments to realize the situation. By that time the Al-Kabab had opened with 20 AK-47, wounding 3 and killing 2 of the 8 men. In the firefight, one Al-Kabab was killed, 2 wounded.(1 severely).. In the end the 3 remaining Brazil soldiers that had the ability to run moved into the woods and ran, leaving the others to the fate of Al-Kabab. As Al-Kabab closed on the road barricades firing, the remaining defenders were killed. There was discussion of getting on horseback to track down those soldiers that escaped, but they did not do that.
. They did move their wounded into the 2-ton truck driving it north into VZ, gathering supplies: food, weapons, bedding, chairs from the small building. They set up a booby-trap with two of the bodies, one was able to kill another soldier from Brazil upon a strong force that did show up.

Brazil
Shortly after the B-58 Hustler landed, 33 minutes after. A dozen vehicles moved out of some garages in Brazil heading deeper into Brazil. 8 of them had single 23mm AA guns on the deck. Others had heavy or light m.g. and a few had recoil-less rifles.
. As the group of Kababs came up on a small militia barracks. The fired the 106mm RR and the HMG and 23mm into the 3 buildings including garage. The posted security were taking their nap in the afternoon. 12 there died, and about 18 wounded. Al Kabab escaped without any causalities. They planted 2 AT mines about a mile up the road from this militia base.
The 23mm really hits hard masonry buildings, causing causalities and destruction of the facility.
. Al Kabab mailed a letter to the 'local CO of the Army. It was insulting, saying that he was next. Actually, they mailed 6 letters, that had a difficult time getting the funds for the postage until they robbed a food store.

Brazil
The Brazilian and Canadian units quickly reacted to this recent attack, by placing Barbed Wire and Concrete barriers at every major crossings along the border with Venezuela the number of military personal has increased in order to began round a-clock patrols, in addition Brazilian M60s and Leapord 1s are now present at the crossing.

Panama
A Panamanian registered freighter entered into the Gatun Locks was deliberately scuttled by her crew in order to block access to the Atlantic entrance, the wrecked freighter then unloaded hundreds of Panamanian protesters that where onboard along with a random assortment of WW2 and early cold war era weapons stolen from a local museum and set up a makeshift fort around the ship and parts of the lock. The Protesters demanded that the ROD and the CofC military should dismantle there bases and leave Panama.

Panama
The scuttled ship in near Ft. Gatun is a problem. Panamanian Military, police, emergency personnel arrived. Also are the US Military, CoC. Panamanian loud speakers urging the protesters to leave the area immediately. Providing meals and medical attention. All other areas are secure with heavy security, helicopters, armored vehicles.
. Fortunately, no shots have been fired, nor any injuries.

The Protesters refuse to leave, they will rather die then see there beloved home of Panama being controlled by Imperialist pigs of the US, and the land stealing colonists of the CofC. the Protesters opened a makeshift gun port in the fort and a long barrel of an old WW2 German 8.8 cm Pak 43 appeared aimed at the armored vehicles near the fort. other protesters climbed to the forts walls armed with a mix of M1 Grands, AK-47s, and Bazookas, they where determined to fight to free Panama from foreign influence.

Elsewhere on the Pacific side a Panamanian Oil tanker also controlled by the Protesters made a deliberate ramming attack on a ROD Carrier Armageddon at full speed, punching a huge hole in the hull and with the help of a homemade IED detonated its cargo of Oil turing the ship into a raging fireball as flames gutted the interior of the carrier and showered the flight deck with burning oil.

Sorry, but no. You know that the "Battle Group" in a carrier battle group includes frigates, destroyers, cruisers, and submarines right? The tanker is at the bottom of the Pacific if it is stupid enough to make a run at the carrier. I won't even mention the air wing.

Panama Waterway
In the locks near Ft. Gatun. after 36 hours of discussion to try to resolve the issue. Limited progress has been made. Well no real progress. Panamanian police, and government leaders of Panama have tried to work with the terrorist in the boat in the lock. This is not a peaceful protest, just no one has fired yet.
. The lock has been draining of the water completely. so the ship will rest on the bottom of the lock. it will tilt to one side or the other making it difficult. US soldiers, snipers, SEALs, engineers have arrived among other specialized units. Panama has their infantry and military police around the lock. The crew manning the 88mm AA gun are all targeted by snipers with .308, .338 and .50 BMG etc. Lights and loud music turned on and off at periodic intervals, to irritate. Shooters with darts along with archers are stationed around the ship. Many less than 50 yards, a few less than 30 yeards.
. Ship traffic is backing up. The immediate economic impact is starting to show with reduction in revenue, increase in costs. Layoffs have occurred, (the panama waterway zone [PCZ] management has target families and friend of those on the ship, of those being identified. News is getting out. There are people protesting those that have taken the ship and block the waterway. Protest marches occurring in a half dozen locations outside of the local area.
.
Brazil
A group of Al-Kabab walked up to a station of 4 Leopard 1 tanks and a dozen men. They moved a 23mm gun by cart and donkey under the brush. A few minutes later it and men opened fire on the Brazilian soldiers. The initial volley killed 6. Only 1 Leopard 1 was manned with its crew. Other men running in from the flanks firing after a 30 second open volley. The tank crew caught off guard started to react.... identified the direction of the heavy fire is coming from. They started firing HEAT rounds. hitting trees and clearing leaves from the trees. Started firing the co-ax m.g. They found the direction and the target, taking out the 23mm gun, killing most of the crew and some other heavy machine gunners.
. In the next instant they heard a loud explosion. as an RPG hit destroying an unmanned Leopard 1. The remaining tank crews a dozen men ran away with the flood of men attacking with automatic weapons and RPGs, Those that resisted died. 4 more died running away and 5 wounded, 4 making a clean get away. The assault group fired on the manned Leopard 1 as it was turning the turret with an explosion in the rear deck and fire in the engine deck. The tank fired its co-ax hitting several attackers. The 105mm fired where 3 attackers lost their hearing from the gun blast just before they lost their life. 3 more RPGs hit the tank out of 5 fired at 30 yards, turret blew into the air. Al-Kabab. The engagement last just a few minutes, then it was over with over 20 dead Brazilians and a dozen Al-Kabab.
. The remaining Al-Kabab took over the 3 trucks and two tanks. Two guys that drove tractors on a fame got into the drivers seat, 6 other manned the turrets. One took command of a tank who learned on an M48 in Panama. another was an NCO serving on a T-55 years ago. They immediately pulled out of the fire positions. Heading further into Brazil.
. 8 kilometers down the road they ran into a supply camp with command staff. The tanks were welcomed.... fire!!! Those two tanks destroyed the command tracks, 4 other Leopard 1 tanks that were not manned, shot up fuel cans, tents.... men running like crazy. many being shot down as the ran. Total surprise. Some of the attackers got into the other 2 tanks starting them, driving them back north. Picked up supplies, equipment. They sent out sentries, monitor radio channels.

Brazil
The Canadians and Brazilian forces launched a counterattack aginest the Al-Kabab forces that crossed into Brazil, a section of Canadian Leopard 2s and LAV IIIs managed to locate the trucks and Tanks that where stolen by AL-Kabab, 105mm cannons tearing apart the stolen Leopard 1s while the LAV IIIs opened fire on the trucks disabling them, with there stolen armor gone and faced with a superior force, AL-Kabab retreated back into Venezuela, Canadian Military will now be present at the Brazilian border to ensure this will not occur again.

Panama Can-al
seeing that they are surrounded the protesters on the wrecked ship, preparing to meet there fate, they all shouted "Glory to Noriega and a free Panama" and began to open fire on the US and CofC troops, the 88 mm AA gun fired a shell straight at the US sniper and heavy positions killing 10 and injuring many others, while other fired there stolen weapons on the troops nearby damaging armored vehicles and scattering the coalition forces as they run for cover under the weight of so much fire, the 88mm AA loaded another shell and through some shear amount of luck, hit the helicopter sending it straight to the ground right on top of a aid station turing it into a ball of fire killing many. some of the protesters hurried down to the ships hold where they prepare to set off the explosives, should the coalition forces try to go near it, the protesters with set it off they will go out as martyrs for there cause of a free Panama and destroy the lock in the process.

Panama Waterway,
Lock: as soon a gun fire was taken, numerous smoke dischargers were fired. Those with darts fired at those people standing at or near the 88mm gun. Then a few .snipers did open fire on those still standing. 5 were taken down from gun fire. More smoke. The AH-1 moved closer within 10 minute having flown miles away or laying in nearby field.
. The Lock was finishing up draining all the water out. the ship leaning to starboard at 40 degrees. the 88mm gun came unhinged sliding to the starboard resting on the side rail as the list became more pronounced. Thermal sights were used to identify targets, when possible darts with tranquilizers were shot at those terrorists on deck and in the open. Within 20 minutes that was not any one moving outside. Two bodies did slide under the rail onto the floor of the Lock, That make a unique sound. 10 minutes later water was being pumped into the lock, the doors on each end were opened allow water in. The ship jolted from the flow. Then the lock doors were closed and draining took place again.
