@ Olefin - done As mentioned, let me know if there's problems with it and we'll try something else.

If anyone else wants the RAR file and has trouble getting it from facebook, send me a PM and we'll organise something

I'm about to give it a try...and "the archive is in an unknown format or damaged." I used WinRAR to try to open it.
My reality check bounced,

Entirely too much T2K stuff here: www.pmulcahy.com

Paul, if you're still having problems with the RAR file, I can send you the one I downloaded (to the email listed on your website), if you want?

Given that Free League now has control over the T2K and they have specifically said they’ll be using a modified v2 timeline (albeit with an added sandbox style campaign set in Sweden); V2 is probably the best version to base any future material that you actually have plans to publish.

As for my take on Spain...

Spain entered NATO in 1982 but held a referendum just 4 years later asking whether to remain or leave the Alliance. The vote went by an at least 13% margin to remain in NATO.

While Spain had a socialist government until 1996 it’s military had close working ties with the US going back to the 50s and Franco. It is more than likely that these ties would remain. It’s very likely that Spanish air and naval assets were heavily involved in ASW within the Western Med and eastern Atlantic Ocean. In return this would prompt Soviet retaliation, probably in the form of cruise missile attacks, against US and other NATO bases throughout Iberia. One thing to remember is that while West German/German forces were at war with Warsaw Pact by October/July (depending upon the version of canon one uses); It wasn’t until a month after the Mid-November Soviet invasion of Norway that the US, British and Canadians moved East to aid the Germans. This gives NATO members a month in which to decide whether to fulfill their treaty obligations to defend their allies.

I think you might see the Spanish and Portuguese up their contributions to ACE Mobile Force as the Italians withdraw and I like the idea of Spain sending a “volunteer” division (Think Blue Division but way less Fascist) to Germany sometime in early 1997 while retaining a limited role overall.

It will get interesting though in July 1997 when Italy and Greece enter the war against NATO. Imagine a naval battle centered around the mini-carriers Spain and Italy each had. Harrier vs. Harrier and then for fun add in a British carrier arriving on scene just in time to save the Spanish. Frenimies forever.
