Please note, most of the plot is from red storm rising.
In December 1986, Several CIA agents who where working undercover at a soviet oil harvesting plant in the caucus oil sands planted bombs along the main pipeline, and several other locations including the main operating terminal. The Soviets Mobilised their reserves and took their places opposite NATO. While the Soviets hoped to make the opening moves, NATO sent in a force of Stealth fighter bombers (probably F-117ís) to attack the main bridges, command posts, and fuel and am o dumps in east Germany. The plan went brilliantly. The Soviets where forces to not only invade a warned enemy, but had to rebuild what had been lost. But this was only a minor setback, as many forces still sat ready to pounce and they did so with fierce brutality. The soviets pushed NATO back to a perimeter around Hamburg, and south to about the Fulda gap. (surprisingly, they did not go through it). They battered at NATO for weeks and the war became a standstill.
During all of this, Canada was debating what to do. It had 4th Canadian Mechanized Brigade in Germany and it was supporting US and German Forces. However, the government did not know if it wanted to send the rest of 1st Canadian division to join them. Canada had gone down this path before, and the people did something about it. They wanted to help their allies in Europe, but their government did not want to. An enraged people and a optimistic army overthrew the government and put the leader fo the opposition in office, a man who promised to commit Canada fully to the war. His first order of business was to update Canadaís military equipment, and to buy lots of it. The Air Force would need many more fighters to become an effective weapon, so he brokered a deal with the US to produce several models in Canada. The Army wanted the Leopard 2ís to replace there Leo1ís, so he promised Germans to help take of the pressure of them, though not how he planned on doing it. The Navy wanted new Destroyers and assault landing ships, so he paid the US and local shipbuilders to make them.
When all was said and done, It was over a year and Canada was ready. She had a deployable field army, consisting of 2 Corps, each of 3 Mechanised Divisions. The Air Force could deploy 10 air wings; 5 fighter, 1 bomber, 2 fighter bomber and 2 seaborne. The Navy consisted of 14 destroyers, 5 missile cruisers, 6 Assault landing ships, and 6 submarines. She was ready to commence a huge operation. It was codenamed Operation Arctic Thunder. Canada would land a force in Siberia, to force the Russians to send more troops to counter them. This would allow NATO forces to launch a counter attack into east Germany and hopefully continue the momentum into Poland, or even Russia. The operation was tricky, the untried Canadians would be forced to take on soldiers who had combat experience in Germany, but where sent east to defend the east after Japan finally entered the fray. The Japanese would play no part in the operation, except tie down as much of the Red Navy as it could.
And so, with the fate of western Europe, maybe even the western world, the young proud Canadians sped across the pacific to Siberia to finally show Ivan how powerful a Canadian Grizzly was.
