World War III in Europe: Imagine if the Soviet Union Invaded NATO? This Simulator Does.
From three decades distant, it is easy to forget that the late 1980s were the high point of the World War That Never Was. Both sides, oblivious to the imminent fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union, had deployed the last cutting-edge technology of the era. Many of the weapons that would have clashed in the Fulda Gap or the north German plain, did go on to fight in Desert Storm, and could fight again in Ukraine or Poland: Abrams, Challenger, Leopard and T-80 tanks; Bradley and BMP infantry fighting vehicles; A-10 attack aircraft and AH-64 helicopters.
