Unlike most Cold War games, this project focuses exclusively on a theoretical confrontation taking place in the late 1960s, specifically 1968. This is an era pitifully under-represented in the medium of video games, as most take place during the 1980s and 1990s. For me, though, the 60's represents an interesting era where the technology and doctrines that developed during WW2 began to truly evolve.

This mod features iconic weapons, vehicles and units from the 1960s, such as:

- Soviet Guards, VMF (Naval) and VDV (Airborne) infantry squads;
- US Armored Cavalry and Airborne Infantry squads, as well as US Army Ranger LRRPs and Special Forces squads complete with minigun-armed Huey Slicks;
- Iconic tanks like the T-55, T-62, M48 Patton and M60A1, and the last generation of 'heavy tanks', the M103 and T-10M. And some of the more unique weapons systems from the era, like the M50 Ontos.
- The latest in wire-controlled anti-tank guided missile technology such as the 9M14 'Malyutka' (AT-3 Sagger) and MGM-32 (ENTAC);
- Weapons, cannons and artillery pieces ranging from M2HB and Dshk .50 cals, SPG-9 and M40 recoilless rifles, M108 and M109 artillery pieces and more;
- Advanced, next-gen prototype units like the 2S3 'Akatsiya', early TOW-equipped Jeeps, and more planned - the M60A1E2 'Starship', T-64 tank and M163 VADS.

This project is probably way over-ambitious. One day I'd love to start adding more nations - the United Kingdom, France, East and West Germany and even China. If you'd like to help, I'd love to accept it.

For the time being, there are sure to be plenty of bugs and issues. Please report them in the comments below.

Can you add zombies to this? Other CTA mods dont have zombies, if you can add an infection of some kind as apart of fauna or something that would be cool
