Portugal's oldest ally (indeed ANYONE's oldest continuous ally if you count England>GB>UK as continuity) is the UK, who are actually quite a good coalition partner because they provide Stormers, Marksmen and Rapiers to shore up the AA, improved infantry AT and a proper IFV, the Challenger series to cover the high-end armour, some very nice air options including SEAD, the AS-90 for the artillery deficiency and the Lynxes cover the helicopter tab roles that Portugal doesn't, albeit not very well.
For its part, Portugal serves a similar role to Commonwealth in providing the UK with ground mobility, fighting infantry and an AGM carrier that actually works in real life or in game. It's not going to be Entente level good but it'll be a perfectly serviceable coalition and leaves Spain free to chum up with Italy.Seryn wrote:Germany!
Have you got any justification for that or do you just want Germany to be in enough coalitions that German balance changes become too difficult to see the effects of to be worth making?
Guy, you caught attention. It's probably the best idea. I felt so sorry to couldn't prepare a coallition of Spain and Portugal, because together, their lacks aren't supplied, and hasn't possibilities to be competitive. But like you said, Spain and Italy compenetrates each other very well, as well as Portugal could suit UK.
I like the possiblity to see both coallitions in Wargame.
