What would happen if in 1988, Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev was assassinated? CNC Fallout is a total conversion mod for Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars that postulates this very question.

Well,a lot of it actually really happened and the probability of history like Henford it gives us is really big too.The half of truth is always the greatest lie.Such interactive performance and you've just quickly put it together.Why don't you say to guys from EA that they have 15 seconds to pack,'cause you're taking command ?:p)

I've tried something so far ... Just add some "extra" music who can fit to it, just to fill it and add more consistance to it.
So begin with


When at 1:44 switch to :


Thumb me up or down, i've just tried to make this great trailer more epic.

Not as of yet - it is the video that plays on the mod's skirmish screen.

On C&C3, there is always a video that plays in the skirmish setup screen on the upper right.

On vanilla C&C3, it is a video of GDI tanks etc rolling out of a base.

Andrey_159 Aug 16 2011 says:

Generally well done, nice effects too (AK-shaped soviet arms sales XD ), but there are some things I want to complain about:

Backstory problem: "Andriy Litzkova" >_< After searching the wiki I figured it supposed to be male. But even if "Litzkova" were real surname (based on name it's supposed to be Ukrainian one), which I doubt, but can't confirm right now, ending puts it as female surname.

Newspaper heading: "Andriy Litzkova new USSR premier" - feel like verb is missing.

Moment at 0:42 - while turning Afgan red is done normal, erasing the border and putting full soviet logo feels excessive.

1:02, missiles. Topol-M is ICBM, it have no benefits of stationing it at Europe. Just my opinion.

2:07 Iskander? So, while ICBMs are on the frontline, tactical missiles are placed as a strategical?

And the constant flickering. Uncomfortable.

Andrey_159 Aug 17 2011 replied:

Umm... "Andreyev" is a surname. Just FYI. Also in Wiki it jumps between "Litzkov" and "Litzkova", mostly the latter. Also surname "Litzkov" is highly improbable to appear is Slavic language, mostly because of uncomfortable "tz" part.

Thank you Henford.But that old name can still probably be seen in those news in your video.

This is insanely awesome!
Got goosebumps watching it- actually makes a believable scenario that the Soviet Union (on the decline) and Australia would actually massively turn themselves around into hardcore superpowers!
Nice stuff! Should put some background music in it though.

As much as I love the idea of Australia acting as a major player on the world stage, I see several flaws in your 'back-story"
1. The Papua would never welcome IMT's 'law and order', just look at east Papua, Indonesia still can't enforce their rule over the populace to this day. Also such an invasion would require retaliation from all the commonwealth Realms immediately as written in their constitution
2. Australia has a very small population,(ok, you could get round this by having us as quality over quantity...You already thought of that I'm sure.)OR You could add that they recived a massive imigration over the course of two years from Europe &/or North America
3. ANZUS treaty and our constitution would require us to fight as part of the NATO hierarchy.
4. If Australia did become so badass, why didn't you mention us annexing New Zealand! :D (silly but plausable)

Minor complaints; sorry for ranting.

From 0:45 onwards, I see Montenegro and Albania connected. A bit nonsensical, but eh. The rest of the video is a frickin' masterpiece.

The (hopefully) final version of Prelude to Conflict.

This is the video that plays during the Skirmish setup screen. For this reason, there is no sound.
