The world found itself on the edge of self-destruction.

Cuba turned into a contaminated island. Soviet military bases and large cities like Moscow, Leningrad, and Ekaterinburg were hit by USA nuclear missiles. USSR destroyed Washington, New York, Los Angeles, cities of the Western Europe, USA military bases in Turkey, Italy, Western Germany. UK used nuclear weapons against Warsaw Pact countries. The map of the world was now covered with radioactive craters, fires, and nuclear clouds.
