The Old World
A misty morning on the West Germaney wall, soldiers patrolling the checkpoints are just having an average day as usual. Talking jokes about the supposed war and sipping coffee in the morning light, while most of the barrack is still asleep. This seemed as normal as any day, when suddenly the roaring thunder of the MI-24 Hinds escorted by the soaring SU-25 and Pegasus soldiers taking out the unexpected patrol helicopter and the Hinds sending whoever that is still in the slumber in the barracks to hell with their 122mm anti-ground missiles and covering the ground with lead as the tide of Soviet war machine rushed towards the front lead by T-80s and T-62s and elite guards leaped off of their BTR-80 and their 7.62mm bullets pierced the bodies of the guarding soldiers...... This was how everyone thought the end of the world would have started. Or so was what might have happened in another world.
1990. The USSPR (Union of Soviet Socialist Pony Republic) under the leadership of Marekhail Gormanechev after suffering great both political loss and military loss in both the war against Afghanistan and the Coltan Missile crisis. In one last desperate attempt to turn the tide and keep the Union standing, a invasion of Alaska was conducted on 1990/12/19 hoping that the Americans won’t respond overly aggressive. Unfortunately, what was meant to be a conventional conflict turned nuclear when a weather balloon launch that happened the next day was mistaken for a SIMM (Solar Interstellar Magic Missile) launch. Knowing full well, that if in a full out war situation they would need every second they have to launch as many missile as possible, and with the leadership being under extreme pressure the order was given without any thought, it was soon later when the missiles were launched, They realized their mistake. As the missiles made their way across the planet. The world had seemed to be in a fury of self-destruction as it seemed as every nation unleashed hell upon each other. The war ended abruptly, without victors only fire.
1991. A year had passed, although the heat from the larger SIMMs had faded, many places around the world still was filled with wasteland that was just solid rocks as the intense heat reduced the ground to molten rocks and eventually cooled down. As the winter had finally passed, and the sun shined again over the cooling planet and under the flags of the old world, a new chapter of war had begun.
