Black Iron’s Glory - Chapter 559
Chapter 559 Strategic Deception
Thompson Baron is a well-known defense expert in Hicks Kingdom and a rising star of the Society of Architectural Engineers. He is now 40 years old. This time he was dispatched by King McKid III to Breaux Kingdom to help Breaux build a sturdy defensive front in the mountainous border areas to withstand a possible attack by the Kingdom of Aueras Overseas Dominion Army.
Thompst Baron’s Father is a court nobility belonging to the Hicks royal family. In terms of blood relationship, he has a kinky relationship with the Hicks royal family. The so-called court nobility refers to the nobility dedicated to serving the royal family. There is no territory. Instead, he assumes this Ren position in the court and receives salary. It can be said that the royal family is the most trusted minion.
Thompst Baron ’s Father hopes that his child will become an outstanding exploration expert when he grows up, so that he may find a valuable mineral resource for the family, provide the family with continuously wealth, and have the ability to support the family Gain a hereditary territory. So when Thompst Baron became an adult, he threw him into the Wang Family mining engineering academy and studied exploration and mining.
Alas, one less! Like to ask everyone to collect: () Zhai Shuyuan is the fastest to update.
What made Thompst baron stand out was a simple set of defense camp maps designed for a fellow mining base, and a nobility gold mining base also bought this drawing and constructed it according to the drawing . Four months later, this gold mining base was attacked by gangsters. Seventeen miners hid in the warehouse facilities of this defensive camp and hit Retreat. They attacked nearly a hundred gangsters and held on for half a month, paying only one death and four injuries. The price of waiting for the arrival of reinforcements.
This incident caused a sensation throughout Hicks Kingdom, and the map paper designed by Thompst Baron also attracted a lot of attention. Many owners of the mining industry suddenly discovered that the construction of a mining base in accordance with the map paper of this defensive camp would improve the security performance several times. In the event of an attack by a gangster, it is really difficult to obtain strong fortification facilities in the defense camp without formidable power. Therefore, the map paper of this defensive battalion designed by Thompst Baron became the standard equipment of various mineral bases …
Shit, it’s one more paragraph! Zhai Shuyuan, the latest chapter updated soon!
Even if Thompst Baron bitterly told these workers that construction according to his newly designed drawings would ensure that the guardian’s casualties would be reduced after the war broke out. But even the Breaux official who was in charge of managing these labors didn’t care much. He told Thompter Baron that a trench was enough. The heroic Breot soldiers would not shrink into the trenches as coward. They would rather Charge ahead and fight hand-to-hand with the enemy, and do not want to hide in the thick cover inside the body to put cold guns through each and everyone’s mouth, that is not a warrior’s behavior.
Thompst baron was annoyed, but was unable to convince these stubborn Breots. He actually wanted to cover a thick layer of earth and stone bunkers on the trenches, so as to prevent the enemy’s explosive shells from harming the soldiers in the trenches. But the Bretts were unwilling. They thought that the top trenches were more convenient for them to charge and counterattack, and the air in the entire trenches was cloudy after putting in the cover, making people breathless and feeling very depressed …
Thompst Baron was furious and decided to go to Breote Kingdom’s engineering governor to sue, but he was stopped by his companion halfway. This companion was Richis Captain who came to the frontline of Breaux Kingdom with him. Thompst Baron found that Richis Captain was muddy, and even his face was stained with mud, but his expression was very excited. Thompson baron was curious to ask what he had done, how to make such a wolf look?
Richis Captain was very excited to say that he went to the border of Menbamac Kingdom to reconnaissance, hid in a mud puddle, stayed for more than two hours, escaped the patrol of the Kingdom of Aueras camp opposite, and finally found in The vast and endless enemy garrison on the border between the two countries is the air battalion. The enemy garrison in the camp is only the nobility coalition of the territory, not the Thunderbolt Legion of the Overseas Dominion. He found that most of the camps in front of it’s empty tents, not at all signs of living.
Day, I ca n’t watch it again! Remember for a second, Zhai Shuyuan ().
Thompson baron was a little disappointed. If the result of the reconnaissance of Reichs Captain was true, then how he designed and built that defensive front was also a waste of effort and had no use at all. Maybe those Breots have already detected the same situation as Reichs Captain, so I feel that they are somewhat relaxed during this time, and are not willing to bother to build that defensive front. It’s easy to understand that they are probably hiding this opportunity to get a lot of free armament assistance from Hicks Kingdom …
In fact, the Hicks Kingdom War Department was also very concerned about the Overseas Autonomous Region. When it was learned that thunderbolt Legion swept Monbamark Kingdom, the nobility coalition annihilated the restoration of Kingdom of Nasri and Kanas Dukedom backed by Hicks Kingdom. After the National Army, Hicks Royal Court sounded an alarm and improved readiness. After all, they are still in the state of war with the Kingdom of Aueras. No matter when they are attacked by the Thunderbolt Legion, it is not an accident.
This is also the reason why McKid III generously provided arms assistance after receiving a letter from King Avitre I of Breoit Kingdom. Hicks Kingdom is always very wary of the vassals of these vassals, especially Breaux Kingdom, which is the strongest of all vassals. And Hicks Kingdom has never really conquered this country. Over the past few decades, with its strong national strength, it has subdued this unruly little brother and obediently obediently.
But compared to the Thunderbolt Legion of the Overseas Dominion, Breaux Kingdom is less of a threat. Since Avitele I voluntarily jumped out to resist the invasion of the Overseas Dominion, Hicks Kingdom naturally encouraged and supported it. In fact, McKidd III was really anxious about Breote Kingdom and the Both Sides of the Dominion of the Dominion, which really solved the two major problems of Hicks Kingdom.
The senior officers of the Hicks Kingdom War Department are not all rice buckets either. The second great war in the eastern region has made the senior officers of Hicks Kingdom well aware of the battle strength of Thunderbolt Legion. They believed that even in a frontal field, a division of Thunderbolt Legion was enough to defeat one of their standing Legions. Hicks Kingdom had better end the war by signing a truce peace agreement with Kingdom of Aueras. Only in this way can we concentrate manpower and material resources, research the latest weapons and equipment, and wait for the opportunity to seek Kingdom of Aueras and Overseas Dominion in the future to revenge.
Unfortunately, this wise proposal was opposed by the paranoid king McKid III. He believed that Hicks Kingdom and Kingdom of Aueras were separated by land between two countries and could only transport one or two Legion at a time by sea. As long as the autonomous region dared to send the Thunderbolt Legion ashore, then he dared to concentrate the military power of the whole country and fight the enemy ashore.
McKid III did not believe that Kingdom’s eight standing Legions could not beat the Thunderbolt Legion and Rock Legion sent ashore by the Dominion. They could be piled to death by people alone. As long as the enemy dares to land, if the Hicks Kingdom’s eight standing Legions are not enough to pile up these two Legions, then they can immediately recruit recruits to form ten or twenty standby Legions …
Hope that the senior officers of the Navy Admiralty are also very helpless. When they encounter such a king, they can only blame their bad luck. However, King Your Majesty insisted that they would not be against the will of McKid III, so they had to make up for the shortages, and started the construction of defense facilities in five seaports in the coastal zone in an effort to build a copper wall and iron wall facing the threat of the sea.
After learning that the Thunderbolt Legion of the Overseas Autonomous Region swept Monbamark Kingdom, the Hicks Kingdom Army immediately organized senior officers to conduct a sand table deduction, hoping to conclude that this was a sign that the Autonomous Region was going to attack Hicks Kingdom. It was because of the excessive rebellion that the Thunderbolt Legion was used to annihilate it.
And for the first time, a letter of help from Breoit Kingdom king Avitelle I caused disputes in the Hicks Kingdom War Department. Many senior Hicks officers believe that the Dominion Territory will likely launch an attack on Breoit Kingdom, and they will not attack Hicks Kingdom until they have occupied this neighbouring country, launching attacks and raids.
The evidence of these Hicks Kingdom senior officers is that Thunderbolt Legion is a light cavalry Legion, which is good at mobile raids, and only land combat can fully play the light combat legion’s battle strength. By sea, based on capacity calculations, it is not possible for the Autonomous Territory to carry soldiers on board while transporting soldiers. At most, only a small number of horses can be transported over. Then Thunderbolt Legion is undoubtedly abandoning his strengths to attack the position. This is the most unwise choice.
In addition, after the Thunderbolt Legion swept across the Babakmak Kingdom, a large barracks large enough to accommodate four or five Legions was set up on the border line adjacent to Breoit Kingdom. Recalling the information sent by the secret agents in the Northern Section Bay, the ocean cruise transport fleet of the Overseas Dominion was transported by two or three Legions under the protection of the Iron Armored Fleet during this time, which has shown that their next offensive target was Breo. Te Kingdom.
However, Hicks Kingdom senior officers who insisted that the Overseas Autonomous Territory use sea raids, transport Legion to land from a seaport city, and then launch an attack, scoffed at the conspiracy of the so-called autonomous territory that would attack Hicks Kingdom by land. They believed that the land faction overlooked the most important point. The border between Breaux Kingdom and Mambamac Kingdom was all mountainous areas, and the light cavalry was also difficult to use and could not play a large role.
As for the avenue between the mountains, it is easy to be blocked and destroyed. In addition to the defensive positions at the top of the mountain, thunderbolt Legion also has to dismount, and the avenue in the middle of the mountain can be repaired after each and everyone has been captured. The Breots are brave mountain warriors, and they will not let the enemy pass through their territory easily. Go attack Hicks Kingdom. If thunderbolt Legion wants to protect his logistical supply channel, he must first occupy the Breot Kingdom and eliminate the Breot threat from the mountains …
Compared with the entanglement in the mountains with the Breots, it is more convenient and quick to capture a seaport city in the Hicks Kingdom coastal zone, at least without adding an enemy to yourself. Therefore, these high-ranking Hicks officers of the maritime faction determined that the large barracks located on the border of Breoit’s Kingdom was likely to be the enemy’s suspect. The purpose is nothing more than to divide the Hicks Kingdom or cause domestic confusion and so on …
For these senior officers of the Hicks Kingdom War Department, the most painful is that the initiative of war is not in their own hands, but with the enemy. Now the Thunderbolt Legion just occupied the Monbamark Kingdom, and a large camp was set up on the border of Breoit Kingdom to let Breoto Kingdom and the Hicks Kingdom chicken jump, it was not peaceful.
Breot Kingdom has entered a state of combat readiness to guard against surprise attacks from the enemy. Hicks Kingdom also sounded the alarm, the troops took precautions, and the officers racked their brains to imagine how and where the enemy would attack. McKid III also wanted to immediately recruit new recruits to set up some reserve Legion. Fortunately, the Royal Court ministers were sober-minded and stopped his impulse.
Quite simply, if the Thunderbolt Legion of the Dominion Territory does not intend to launch an offensive attack, then what good is the Hicks Kingdom recruiting recruits to form these backup Legions, just a waste of military expenditure? Hicks Kingdom now says that the unpleasant point is that there are no rats in a bellows and there is no way out. There is no need to mention it at sea. Without the Neptune fleet, the troops cannot be transported, and the sea route has been sealed unless Hicks Kingdom can build an iron armored fleet that rivals the autonomous region.
The neighbors are also the vassals of the tributaries, and there is no opponent who wants to wage war. Unless Breoit Kingdom agrees to let go of the avenue for Hicks Kingdom’s army to attack the thunderbolt Legion occupying the Mobak Kingdom. However, McKid III did not have the courage, and his General did not agree to this. In the case of weaponry and equipment combat strength and the enemy’s generation difference, the initiative to launch an attack is not called bravery but is called death, it is to add merits to the enemy .
At this time, the Hicks Kingdom Army Department finally received a report from Richis Captain on the frontline of Breot Kingdom. This was not the result of a single reconnaissance, but a dozen Hicks sent to Breot Kingdom. Joint report of the Sri Lankan officer.
Under the leadership of Reichs Captain, these Hicks officers repeatedly conducted reconnaissance on the enemy’s barracks set at the border for the next half month, and captured a few enemy soldiers who had been ordered. According to the statement, thunderbolt Legion had already returned to the Northern Section Bay area. The battalion set up on the border is indeed an air battalion. The purpose is to deter Breote Kingdom from interfering with the fact that Mombak Kingdom was occupied by the nobility coalition …
This was a false alarm, and the maritime faction won a great victory. The land faction made a suggestion in anger and anger, or let Kingdom’s army actively attack the Kingdom of Aueras nobility coalition of Menbamac Kingdom through Breoit Kingdom. After winning, they will then attack the Nasri area and help Nasri in exile Royal Court to restore the country …
But this suggestion was quickly rejected by McKid III. As these land factions say, thunderbolt Legion is a light riding Legion, who knows whether it is true or false that they returned to the Northern Section Bay, and the agents there did not send it. Ok intelligence. If this is a conspiracy to lead the snake out of the hole, the Hicks army that is actively attacking will likely fall into the trap of the enemy and encounter a crisis of destruction.
As quiet as it gets, those officers and construction experts dispatched to Breaux Kingdom can return. Thinking of the large amount of armament supplies and weapons and ammunition delivered to Breaux Kingdom, McKid III was a little bit distressed again. He’s kind of shameful and doesn’t plan to ask for aid supplies, but this doesn’t prevent him from thinking of Breoit Kingdom as cannon fodder.
So McKid III wrote to Avitre I asking Bryot Kingdom to send troops to help defend against the enemy ’s attack when attacked by the autonomous command zone in the Hicks coastal area. Lei Yi agreed to his request and promised to send at least two Legions to assist the battle.
On the threeth of July, the Hicks agents lurking in the Northern Section Bay successively sent information to inform the Overseas Autonomous Leading Area that more than 300 sailing ocean transport ships had assembled in the Northern Section Bay, as well as nearly a hundred sails. Battleship, a fleet of twenty-eight iron armored battleships. Thunderbolt Legion, newly formed Storm Legion, Rock Legion and a reserve Legion banner appeared in the Northern Section Bay Camp, with an estimated total strength of more than 400,000 horses.
Because the camp is heavily guarded, idlers and others cannot approach, so the agents cannot approach the reality. However, in the tavern of the capital city of Campastre, some grass-roots officers of the drunk autonomous autonomous region will always be encountered. From their leaked gossip, it can be determined that the autonomous region has decided to implement a landing operation on Hicks Kingdom, only for their purpose. Which seaport city cannot be ascertained …
Day, I ca n’t watch it again! Remember for a second, Zhai Shuyuan ().
On the threeth day of August, the Iron Armed Fleet of the Dominion of Overseas reappeared in the Hicks Kingdom Sea Territory. This time, they dispatched the Marines and occupied Minsleake and Cembak Island.
