Though the more the story....stories...progress, we need an authority to give us some guidelines on the level of destruction. And that is you, Macragge. ;-) Without that guidance, we won't have the coherent picture that we, so I think, all look for by adopting the "Protect and Survive"-trademark.
I think that we had a good debate concerning the number of British survivors. If you act as a referee on debates of this kind, I think we can create a great deal of clarity wihout having to put everything into the bits of the superb stories.
However, we have made great strides cobbling together a military presence for our arrival. The only surviving Aircraft carriers CVN-86, the USS Nimitz has dispatched fighters for our escort to Washington. This escort comes directly from the General’s close personal relationship with the Admiral in charge of that ship. The remnants of the Navy have received from us a daring mission in the past three days. The Navy has undertaken itself rescue every possible person from the US embassy in every country they can get to. The success of this mission is still to be determined.
There also appears to be only one strike in Nevada, Reno, and their government has moved to Los Alamos. Food is in absolute shortage there and the government is not expected to last long.
They better pray a Soviet sub doesn't find the Nimitz before it can reach a surviving port...
1. Why would the Nevada state government move to a settlement in New Mexico?
2. What happened to Los Vegas?
3. Los Alamos (which contains a major US federal government research facility) survived?!
Las Vegas would have suffered destruction from the strike on Nellis air force base.Its plausible some air force bases survived but Nellis no way it would receive multiple strikes even with a failure rate of 50% some would have hit it.And Los Alamos would have also received multiple strikes lets be serious here.A few revisions are in order.Nothing personal but Nellis AFB would be wiped out.Also certain strikes took place agains the Area 51 region.While intel about what is going on there would be limited the soviets surely knew something was there and its better to wipe it out.Again a few revisions are in order.
