While Russian settlements had been established from the 1660s, it wasn't until 1946 that the Soviet Union ordered the establishment of a permanent settlement, christened Provideniya. It grew rather quickly as military units were deployed there.
Provideniya in The Hot WarEdit
Provideniya was the site of a Soviet Red Air Force base. After World War III broke out in earnest in 1951, several bombers from Provideniya attacked the West Coast of the United States on March 2, 1951, destroying several key cities with atomic bombs.
Days later, the U.S. destroyed Provideniya.
