The Portuguese in me demands the recovery of Goa and Madeira , but I reckon those are probably hard tasks ( the last only if the Brits decided to superstack there :/ ) or atleast not worth the effort by themselves. Realistically the best contribution Portugal could give after cleaning the ANZAC area would probably be South America, that in certain areas is almost as hollow as Africa, so easy to get via VP hunt ( say Brazil or Argentina ... ) or going Lawrence of Arabia and grab the Middle east up to Persia-Iraq border. Anything more chewy would probably need a ridiculous time to prepareI'm fortunate that the African supply is only an annoyance, rather than a matter of life and death. It causes delays in when I can move troops to other theatres, but it doesn't threaten to determine victory or defeat.
To be honest, once Australia is put down (IF Australia is put down), Portugal has no firm strategic goals. It's accomplished what it wanted. From there, it's first and foremost a matter of the Axis winning the war, so Portugal must determine how it can best contribute... something that really is not at all clear at this point. India is a BIG mouthful to swallow -- quite unlike either South Africa or Australia. So where? I'd be curious as to your thoughts.
