  1. What company could replace Lockheed as America’s secret aircraft manufacturer?

    Given a POD in the 1930’s, are there any other US aircraft manufacturers that could fill Lockheed’s role in the development of things like America’s first jet fighter, the secret spy planes of the Cold War, or pioneering stealth aircraft? Northrop seems like an obvious answer, but the flying...
  2. Nazi v US Cold War: Larger strategic focus towards a conventional WW3?

    Hi all, For the last year or so, I’ve been worldbuilding and planning to write a series of vignettes and a larger (novel-sized) book set in an alternate 1980’s in the midst of a Cold War between the US and Nazi Germany.

  6. Call of Duty: Black Ops Alternate History

    I just noticed this last night. On the level where you go to the Pentagon to meet with Kennedy, when you get to the war room, there's a large map of Europe on the far wall. On that map, it shows a united Germany as a member of NATO and Finland and Estonia as members of NATO...in 1963...
  7. HOI2 AAR Help
