    Archive footage shows the U.S. Army training video of the then-new M2 Bradley IFV on how it would have been used against the Soviet Army in Germany. Footage released from remaining American forces now in the Prussian military.

    Protect and Survive phamplets that were distributed among the population of the United Kingdom in case of a nuclear war. While not a 100% efficient, many British citizens applied the knowledge from this survival guide following Doomsday.

    (Trivia: Protect & Survive is also a timeline within this forum but is set in 1984 onwards.)

Captain O'Driscoll was an ace during the conflict, with six confirmed Sicilian kills.

    A photograph of Eddie Murphy and Joan Rivers during the 35th Primetime Emmy Awards that was held on September 25, 1983 in the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Pasadena, California. This was minutes before someone ran on stage and interrupted the awarding ceremony stating that the USSR launched several ICBMs towards the United States, leading to complete pandemonium in the auditorium before the footage cut short. Murphy, Rivers, and several other celebrities are believed to have been killed as the Los Angeles metro was plastered with multiple nuclear missiles.

    Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping (left) meets with U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger in Beijing, China on September 25, 1983 in discussing some form of defense pact between the United States and the People's Republic of China as possible form of containing the Soviet Union. The next day, Doomsday occurred and Beijing was one of the first targets to be attacked by Soviet warheads. It is unknown whether SecDef Weinberger made it out of Beijing in time or was killed along the way to an allied country (i.e. Japan, South Korea, or the Philippines).

    Full show of Bon Jovi's Runaway Tour performance in Madison Square Garden, New York City on September 24, 1983. The band was presumably killed the following day as New York City and the surrounding metro was plastered with 24 Soviet nuclear missiles.

    A Tupolev Tu-95 (NATO reporting name: Bear) seen taking off from the Soviet Far East on the way to attack Elmendorf Air Base in Alaska on Doomsday, c. September 26, 1983. The plane here is seen crossing the International Date Line hence it was still September 25 in the Western Hemisphere.
