Disclaimer: Apparently real life events are also part fictitious in content, and are used only for "adding a sense of reality" and akin purposes. Please don't take them too seriously.
This is a list of targets, events and/or nations! They are chosen for reasons of Cold War geo-political, military and infrastructural development, plus a bit of good ATL story telling. It is not intended to be biased or one sided!

It is alternate history with based on a Cuban Missile Crisis gone 'hot' situation. This timeline is not, I repeat not a fantasy or sci fi timeline. Since it is meant to be factually possible it thus has no magic, aliens, borg or ninja turtles or alike whatsoever, but can be on the optimistic side of post war life (not so many war deaths, quicker rebuilding after the 1962-1972 dark-age, and alike).

Editorial Guidelines-

Nuclear war losses-1962

Possible nucliar war losses.

  1. Check your Grammar! Most users get sick of seeing people making complete wrecks of sentences (yes, I have seen worse than my own my spelling and grammar out there).
  2. Plausibility is a must! No robot space ninjas, Cybermen, Borg, wizards or other supernatural elements.
  3. Cannon is king. While adding new details to your article is okay, you can't just place something completely out of whack in your article. If it has been established that Nation A invaded Nation B, you can't say otherwise.
  4. Before making changes to another’s article (besides simple grammar changes, or fixing small errors), ask the owner of the article.
  5. Before an article is made into Cannon, it must be approved by a senior editor of the timeline or the creator of the time line.
  6. Do some research before you create a nation check and see if it was heavily nuked or not this will determine its plausibility. Remember a nation which has been permanently destroyed cannot be used, I.E. no super mutants or wired sci-fi stuff!
  7. Have fun!

Slough, England, in 1990.

This is the technical Page for 1962: Doomsday, a timeline based on the OTL Cuban Missile Crisis (along with the ATL Korea and Germany) going horribly astray and resulting in a global nuclear confrontation, wiping out the world as we know it!

European combat theory

West German Bundeswehr 1960 (1)

W. German troops moving towards the Fluda Gap in centeral Germany.

By what I have herd in the media a read on the Wikipedia about WW3 in Europe is-

  1. That that the principle invasion point is the Fluda gap and W. Berlin is ready for the taking.
  2. 2 Spetnaz would wreck W. Germany and the missile silows in southern Italy.
  3. Korea would probably flair up and Cuba would be the USA's top target. Iraq’s, Persia’s and Kuwait’s oil wealth would be a Soviet target.
  4. The USSR wanted to wipe out the USA and W. Germany. The UK, France, the Netherlands and Denmark would be offered the chance to surrender after a heavy conventional attack.
  5. Chem’s may have been used in the UK, France and Denmark. Germany would be chem’ed.
  6. The USA wanted to wipe out the USSR, E. Germany, N. Korea and Cuba. They wanted to get Romania and Yugoslavia on thire side.
  7. Poland and E. Germany would be devistated by NATO.
  8. Hungary and Austria were likley to clash. The south western of Chechoskovakia and northern Italy would get drawn it to it to.
  9. Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey would clash over the NATO/WP ownership of the Dardinels.
