The Third World War, or World War III, was a global war that lasted for most of 1982, beginning when the Soviet Union, led by Russia - along with the Latin Confederation and China - invading the United States of America, as well as Europe, with support from the Russian-created PsiCorps, a mysterious group led by Yuri who employed mind control and manipulation to assist in the war. Opposing the Soviet Union were the Allied Nations, a loosely aligned military alliance consisting of the USA, European Alliance and the Pacific Front.
Despite the best efforts of the Allied Nations, who for a while seemed to be turning the tide, the Soviet Union was able to eventually win the war with the usage of their deadly nuclear arsenal, taking control over all of North America and all of continental Europe, with the British Isles still under Allied control. In addition, Russia was successful in defeating a Chinese/Pacific Front coalition that attempted to usurp their position as leader of the Soviet Union, while Yuri's PsiCorps was successful in advancing their goals.
Major events to be detailed are:
- Invasion of America
- Invasion of Europe
- Counter-invasion of Russia by Pacific Front/America
- Insurgency in Africa/Middle East led by Scorpion Cell, including Soviet/Allied involvement
- War and insurgency in China between PRC and ROC, including involvement of PsiCorps and Russia
- Chinese/Pacific Front invasion of Russia
- Chinese & Pacific Front war, including PsiCorps involvement
Forty years have passed since the Allies won the Second World War and killed Josef Stalin. In that meantime, the Allies have elected a puppet governor, Premier Alexander Romanov (rumored to be a distant cousin of Tsar Nicholas II), to keep relations between the Allied Nations and the Soviet Union stable. While it was successful at first, things started to nosedive since the appointment of a mysterious man called Yuri as Romanov's chief advisor. The Allies began to suffer across the world. Due to political pressure, the Allies were forced to retreat their forces from Russian territory. China, Mexico and most of South America had turned to communism while all contact with the American intelligence network in Asia was mysteriously lost.
The final result culminates in March 8th, 1982, with Romanov's declaration of war against the United States and massive Soviet invasion forces attacking from both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Alongside these fleets, The Latin Confederation also pushed up through Mexico, nearing the American border each day. The US would've just used their most capable deterrent, the Peacekeeper ICBM network, to fend off these threats to its coasts & borders. However, it was disabled under unknown circumstances (Unknown to them, PsiCorps troopers infiltrated the facilities where the Peacekeeper silos were kept and destroyed them from within. The agents soon committed suicide to avoid the Americans from linking the evidence together).
As shots began to be fired across both Western and Eastern seaboards, the American forces desperately rally to safeguard Washington D.C. from an incoming Soviet assault, knowing that both the Pentagon and White House are vulnerable. Elsewhere in the Eastern United States, a top class Soviet General was tasked with destroying American forces and occupying New York City.
The Battle of Britain is over. The Allies successfully managed to fight off their Soviet attackers and kept the Gladius ABM system intact. For now, they would be able to lick their wounds, regroup and come up with a new plan.
Across the world, however, things were not so good for The Allied Nations. The United States had now completely fallen to Soviet hands, only several groups of American Rebels were left. The Pacific Front had betrayed The Allied cause and joined up with China. Russia had put China in its place after they tried to force Moscow to recognize that they were the true leader of the Soviet Union. Later, The Pacific Front and China fought one another after an incident involving a border skirmish between North Korea and South Korea (which was instigated by PsiCorps agents).
Russia, bloodied by the recent battle against their former ally, began to rest and celebrate the fact that they had won the Third World War. All across the communist nations (Except China due to the war between them and The Pacific Front), parades and parties were made in the streets. Washington DC was later renamed Stalington in honor of their previous leader, Joseph Stalin. Peace and quiet began to creep into the world.
Due to these celebrations, they were not aware of the theft of one of their rocket facilities by PsiCorps troops. Yuri had acquired the equipment, blueprints and ideas necessary for the foundation of his own army (Which he would name Epsilon). He announced to his followers, the Proselyte included, that their time has finally come and that no one would stand in their way. He closed his declaration by stating the following:
|“||Mankind's future shall be ours to command and conquer!||”|
From this point onward, the Proselyte commands the Epsilon Army in building up a large military force strong enough to challenge the weak Allies and the foolish Soviets by using unconventional but effective weapons. He also oversees the taking of Antarctica sometime afterwards, where it henceforth becomes their base of operations.
It takes two years before they are ready to reveal themselves to the world. The Proselyte would soon be given the honor to take part in an action that would make the whole planet know of Epsilon's existence: exposing the Russians' lies that had kept everything in check.
Soon enough, the Mental Omega War would begin...
