Nuclear  Skies by zulumike Nuclear  Skies by zulumike
The russian Tu-160 "White Swan" has dropped the last Tsar Bomb IIx, ( 60 Mega Tons) near an industrial city in North America. A Super Alpha F111 X-70 pursues it's prey in attempt to destroy the adversary.

Earth is "for all intents and purposes" destroyed. Only the airmen and submariners of both the U.S. and Russia's Triad Forces will survive and live out their final days in deep underwater "Oceanic Bunkers".

The Tu-160 pilot and crew races toward specific coordinates in the Atlantic Ocean to be pick-up by an Akyla/Delta Class VI submarine and then travel to a safe ocean bunker.

The U.S. pilot and crew will do the same procedure. It's a final race to the Atlantic Ocean in attempt to survive.

If we we only knew what lies below our ocean floors.

Thanks for Looking.

Cheers, Mike

A truly chilling image. As one who lived through the Cold War era on USAF bases, this was a daily threat. Someone in your comments said they were glad the Cold War was over, and had never gotten Hot. Just last week on November 13, 2014, 3:31 PM on the CBS Evening News David Martin reported that Putin had ordered his Strategic Bombing Forces to start flying missions over the Gulf of Mexico and other locations. Deja Vu All Over Again!

I also lived through the 1960's and remember the Cuban Crisis, the Kennedy/Khrushchev showdown. The younger generation really doesn't know how close we came to nuclear war.

The Cold War really never ended. The games continue, the Triad Defense is still our defense against Russia. Russia also counters with their Triad Defense as we are seeing with flights over the Gulf.

Check out my other artwork of the B-52, TU-95 and nuclear submarines all related to this subject.
