    The Multinational Peacekeeping Force, also known as the MNF, was an international military group consisting of forces from the US, France, and Italy, which was created in August 1982 to oversee the evacuation of thousands of Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) fighters from Beirut, Lebanon. In late September 1982, a second MNF force landed to help stabilize the Lebanese government and military and protect civilians following the assassination of the Lebanese President, Bashir Gemayel, and the massacre of hundreds of Palestinians and Lebanese at two refugee camps. The MNF was subsequently joined by Great Britain in February 1983.

    After Doomsday, the remains of the MNF made attempts to contact people and assess the situation. What information they could gather came from regional radio broadcasts still on the air, shortwave, and the few military or civilian groups willing or able to respond. Reception was complicated by the static caused by the various nukes detonating in the atmosphere and the damage caused by the EMP. Reports were sketchy and fragmented, but confirmed their worst fears. Although Lebanon appeared okay for the most part, many countries were not. Cairo, Egypt and Amman, Jordan were destroyed. Israel had apparently taken strikes in a number of locations. Turkey and Syria had been devastated. They could not pick-up anything from Europe.

    After over a week of no contact, the remains of the fleet arrived back in Beirut. The news was not good. The French and Italians had been ambushed by a submarine in the Gulf of Analya and the Foch, still limping from the attack on Doomsday, had been torpedoed and gone down. However, the submarine had been destroyed. The remaining ships had managed to rescue over five hundred survivors before deciding to turn back towards Lebanon. They were able to confirm a NATO fleet, including the British carriers Hermes and Illustrious, which had been in the Aegean Sea carrying out naval exercises, had been destroyed by nuclear air bursts. They had discovered a small group of badly injured survivors on a damaged frigate which had been on the edge of the blast zone and had managed to survive and head south. The rest of the crew had perished in the attack or died from radiation exposure. After recovering the men, they had sunk the damaged ship.

    The second to arrive was the HMS Glamorgan. They reported making contact with Cyprus and confirmed the island had not been hit very badly, only suffering small hits on the two British military bases. After passing into the waters west of the island, they had been attacked by a Soviet frigate and although they managed to sink it, both ships were damaged in the process. Turning back toward Beirut as well, the HMS Brazen had succumbed to the damage inflicted on it and sank a day after the battle. The HMS Glamorgan was able to offload the surviving crew, who they dropped off in Cyprus before heading back to Lebanon.

    The HMS Hermes was destroyed? If memory serves, one former Royal Navy carrier was sold to Brazil in this TL.

    Pershing II missile launcher in Germany months prior to Doomsday, March 1983. The deployment of these missiles only further deteriorated East-West relations.

    Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Queen became a prominent figure among the British and the Commonwealth following Doomsday until her death in 1984 due to stress and radiation combined. She was succeeded by Prince Andrew who became King of New Britain.

    Soldiers of the Korean People's Army charging into the irradiated DMZ immediately after Doomsday on September 26, 1983. Doomsday reignited the Korean War between the DPRK and the ROK/USFK after the bombs both sides of the peninsula. However, the war soon became a stalemate as radiation and lack of supplies took its toll on both sides plus an ongoing Chinese refugee invasion coming from the bombed out PRC.

    USAF Boeing E-4 also known as the National Emergency Airborne Command Post (NEACP or "Kneecap" for short) flying above the Great Plains region of the United States. President Ronald Reagan stayed a week at the E-4 before being transferred to Mount Weather. The aircraft was lost in the South Pacific in May 1984 when it strayed off course due to electromagnetic interference and radiation. Reagan and First Lady Nancy survive along with a few Secret Service agents in a life raft but it sinks a few days later where Reagan is presumed killed. No sign of the wreckage nor remains of the President and his staff have been found to this day.

    Plot twist: Reagan never actually died and is actually ruling the Provincial USA in secret

    Riots in Port-au-Prince, Haiti following Doomsday. Prior to Doomsday, the country was already at its lowest point due to widespread poverty. With aid from the United States gone, the country erupted into anarchy.

    Surviving British Overseas Forces - Hong Kong personnel "integrated" into the Portuguese military to serve as an ad-hoc to the security forces in Macao after Doomsday. With the Crown Colony of Hong Kong destroyed by a Soviet nuclear missile, countless survivors and BOFHK personnel fled to Portuguese Macao which was spared of the bombs.

    SADF personnel at the South African Border War. Doomsday did not end the conflict and caused South Africa to descend into anarchy.

    Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the United States Atlantic Remnant (c. 2019).
    The USAR considers itself as the legal successor of the United States, making it at odds with the American Provisional Administration in Canberra. It ironically outlasted the APA following the latter's disbandment in 1995. The USAR is currently in talks with the Torrington government on how to be part of the United States in the West Coast of the mainland, but the distance from Oregon to the Atlantic Ocean continues to be an obstacle for reunification.

    A JSDF personnel shakes hands with a USFJ soldier as a symbol of the continuing commitment of the United States to defend Japan against Soviet attack. Despite facing increased anti-Americanism, the JSDF still protected remaining USFJ personnel and worked alongside to quell riots that followed after Doomsday.
