In the cold war, there was a pact against the militarization of space. In otl, the soviet Union almost broke that treaty, but ultimately failed because of a technical error. In atl, it worked fine. The soviets had an orbital launch platform for nuclear missiles. The ussr was able to bully Afghanistan into joining it and Turkey into a puppet. Even the US lived under constant fear. Soon, a millitary project kown as project ballista emerged with a nuke capable of orbiting earth and ultimately destroying an orbital target. 5 of them we launched at the Soviet orbital platform. The platform was destroyed, but then the platform debris tumbled down along with 7 intact nukes. 3 of them landed in the ocean, 1 landed in some uninhabited desert, 1 landed in Mumbai, India, 1 landed in ottowa, and the final one landed in reunion, France. The one in Mumbai affected all of central india, the one in ottowa completely destroyed montreal, new york, pensalvania, and all the way to washington dc. The one in reunion thankfully was very light, but it affected s. Africa, all the way to moshdigu, Somalia. The effects of this were huge. India broke down into city states, the United States had its largwst population center destroyed, and was left without a capital, and chaos broke out in s.e. Africa. Most of the east coast was left in ruin, the capital was relocated to Seattle , Washington, and Marshall law was declared. 5 nukes from the USA were launched at Kalingrad, Moscow, kiev, st. Petersburg, and kamchatca.
