What kept the balance for the Government were airplanes, but they were mostly light pursuit planes, good for strafing troops but unable to carry big enough bombs to hurt the Aver off much....
Ii is known that on March 1935 after a military coup in Greece, the greek government asked help from UK, and more specifically the urgent sale of military aircraft, in order to fight the revolutioners.
High unemployment and consequent social unrest resulted, and the Communist Party of Greece made rapid advances. Venizelos was forced to default on Greece's national debt in 1932, and he fell from office after the 1932 elections, being succeeded by a monarchist coalition government led by Panagis Tsaldaris of the People's Party. Two failed Venizelist military coups followed in an effort to preserve the Republic in 1933 and 1935, but they had the opposite effect. On 10 October 1935, a few months after he suppressed the second attempt in March 1935, Georgios Kondylis, the former Venizelist stalwart, abolished the Republic in another coup, and declared the monarchy restored.
