Default Map of British Nuclear Targets

Ok I have pulled the British Nuclear Targets from the V2.2 Manual.

Aberdeen, Aldershot, Bantry Bay, Barnsley, Bedford, Birmingham, Blackburn, Bolton, Bradford, Bristol, Bury, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Dover, Dundee, Edinburgh, Folkestone, Glasgow, Gloucester, Grangemouth, Grimsby, Hereford, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Luton, Lanchester, Milford Haven, Newport, Nottingham, PortTalbot, Rochdale, Rotherham, Sheffield, Southampton, Stockport, Swansea, Warrington, Wigan, Wolverhampton, Yeovil, York.

I have a question about Bantry Bay. Is there a Bantry Bay in the UK? I have found one in Ireland (Southern) and in South Africa. For now I am leaving it as the Irish one. Am I missing something here?

There is no place called Bantry Bay listed in my AA atlas of the UK. I'm fairly sure that it's the one in Ireland that GDW were referring to, particulalry since according to Wkikpedia Bantry Bay is the main petroleum terminus for Ireland. I'd say it falls under the category of neutral nations attacked to deny their facilities to the belligerents.

Thanks for creating the map - it's a good resource.

Thanks for the confirm on this. I'm guessing that they saw Ireland and just rolled it into the UK.

Thank you for this...

I've a couple of questions...

First is, how did you make it? And second was... do you think you'll be making any more for the other countries or even one of the European continent?

I built the code to make it using google maps and my webserver.

If someone gives me a target list (with warhead size) I can build a map in about an hour I would expect.

Massive numbers of strikes or a huge map might take longer. I am currently working on the math for a MIRV impact as described in the Morrow Project basic rules. Once I complete that I will do a 2802 warhead strike on the US. I don't expect it to be pretty.

Poor UK. Compare the number of nukes that hit it vs. the number of nukes that hit the entire US. Us Yanks faired far, far better in terms of not being nuked to radioactive rubble compared to the Brits.
