Background Edit

September 18th, 1985

The news have confirmed by all Western press agency: USSR & his allies have declared war on Sweden and started crossing its borders, effectively throwing this neutral country on NATO's side.

But for the latter, although thankful for this reinforcement, the strategic situation is grim.

While the Norwegian Army had hopes of holding the Trondheim bottleneck long enough for NATO reinforcements to arrive, the end of Sweden's neutrality now leave its flank completely open to Soviet manoeuvres.

The Swedish Army, the main mechanised force in the theatre, has not yet completely mobilised its forces: the Warsaw Pact won't miss the opportunity to take advantage of the situation.

For NATO, it is a matter of survival to reorganise a new defensive line and hold it long enough to regroup a counter-stake force strong enough to reverse the situation.

For the Warsaw Pact, to take advance of its initial superiority to inflict as much casualties as possible to the enemy.

And for both, control of airfield and harbours will be vital to keep the reinforcement coming...
