I'd say that makes sense, although I don't know for definite.

The period that influences the game most is the mid-late 80's, when the Cold War was at it's peak. It would make sense that Germany would still be split at this time.

Also, you couldn't have the U.S.S.R otherwise. :)

It IS based on Global Thermonuclear War, from WarGames, released in 1983.

Come on, cold war theme! East v West

I think people are still missing the point of Defcon!

Too bad South America wouldn't have nukes if it was strictly realistic :P

i dont want to be pedantic(but i'm afraid i'm being), but i think it's a game.

i agree it has a semi-realistic background, but it's only a game, not a history and geography lesson.

Germany is still split, but Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus and others are already apart? That doesn't make sense :?
