Soviet victory in Afghanistan leads to a joint assault on Pakistan alongside India. Pakistan needs to hold until American forces can arrive to assist.

Expanded South African Border War part 1: The USSR secretly begins to send equipment and advisers to Angola to support Cuba while the USA does the same with South Africa.

South Africa VS Cuba & UNITA.

Part 2: Both the USA and USSR find out each superpower is funding their respective side, soon combat troops are sent to South Africa and Angola as tensions rise into war.

USA & UK & South Africa VS USSR & Cuba & UNITA.

A failed military satellite launch by Greenland is deemed as an act of terrorism and blamed on the USSR. In retalliation, the NPA (North Pole Alliance) launches a nuclear strike against Brazil, the largest wood producer, to cripple the Russian Matryoshka Doll industry. Therefore causing the Ruble to inflate to heights not seen since Germany's Hyperinflation of the 1920's.

I just thought how best to make a campaign where blue and redfor fight together.

If there was, it'd have to be during the 2KW campaign and be the worst thing imaginable.

Good idea redfor and bluefor together.

What about this nightmare?

Something like that:

August, 1977 - Carter Doctrine established in USA. The first Rapid Deployment Forces are designated to not interfere with american commitment in NATO. From then to mid 1978, this force only exist in paper, with american combat morale serious battered after Vietnam.

November, 1978 - As consecuence of the long time turmoil in Iran, the oil production in the country is near collapse. Exports to USA are diminishing to very low levels.

December, 1978 - As situation worsening, Iranian Imperial Army starts to crumble. Officers and rank, demoralised against orders of suppress the crowds, began to desert.

January 16th, 1979 - Persian Shah left Iran to never return. Americans attempts to stablish a non radical government seems to work, as Bakhtiar, the last Shah appointed Prime minister, takes office.

February 1st, 1979 - Iranian Revolutionary leader, Ayatolah Khomeini, arrives in country. Ten days later, Revolution is proclamed. USA losts his best ally in Middle East, and a potential ally in a regional or wider war against USSR.

February 17th, 1979 - PLA crosses the border and invade Vietnam. The PLA quickly advance 20 km in Vietnamese territory and then stop. Vietnamise army, currently occupying Combodia, starts guerrilla tactics. Major Vietnamese units where assigned to Hanoi defense and not were relocated. URSS stars massive military aid campaign, but best calculations made indicates that only a full military comitment against PRC will save Vietnamese allies from being overwhelmed, if PLA advances in depth.

March 1st, 1979 - PRC and USA establish formal embassies. USSR leadership fear about two nuclear enemies mkaing good relations.

March 16, 1979 - Failing to attract VPA in Combodia, and after taking several border cities without clashing with Vietnamese regular troops in force, China recall their divisions from Vietnam, aplying scorched earth policy before. USSR Politburó orders the Soviet Armed Forces contingency plans for war in three fronts, Europe, Caucasus and Far Asia.

April, 1979 - Energy Crisis affects USA. A worried Carter order the military contingency plans to secure Middle Eastern oil and communiction lines between middle east and USA. Rapid deployment forces where assigned this study mission. In Moskow, GRU annalists identify air cover, quantity and quality of mechanized elements and lack of self propeled artillery as the main setbacks of chinese military.

April - June, 1979 - Soviet Armed Forces and KGB set up two different and congruent plans to counter the world struggle against them. First of all, China next generation of ICBM was discover and calculated not being ready for field before summer of 1980. In the other side, inteligence reports inform that the USA are stablishing and training al least 4 army and one Marine division to be sent worldwide, in commitment with american interests. That force will be an american effort outside NATO commitment, augmenting the danger to any Soviet deterrence plan. KGB suggests Politburó to "get the americans in trouble with current SALT II discussions, as Soviet war planners analize this new threat, and a counter to that.

June 18th, 1979 - Jimmy Carter and Leonid Breznhev signs the SALT II agreement.

VDV troops then will jump in to eliminate any wapon and all the personnel that survives the assault. Vietnamese troops will mobilize, to keep PLA Units tight in the border. Politburó suggests that India, too, may be coopted to colaborate attending manouvers in Chinese border. Asked about possible chinese retaliation, GRU admits that PLA will counterattack along Soviet and Mongolese borders. And about possible US intervention, the answer is not secure. No one could secure new american intervention force to came up to chinese aid. Plans are going to be rewritten.

November, 1979 - US Embassy in Teheran is taken by iranian youths. US military made plans to intervene, but no order cames to them. KGB reports "structural weakness" in US movements. Intelligence service of West principal agencies suspects the same as their soviet opponents.

24th to 28th December, 1979 - Soviet GRU AND KGB spetnaz take power in Kabul, killing Afghan dictator Amin. Soviet troops deploys in the coutry, to help the Afghan People Army in their struggle.

January, 1980 - US Government ban the export of grain and technollogy to the URSS. Pakistan, troubled by having soviet troops on its borders, seeks more american and chinese help. Indian intelligence detects arms flowing to Mujaheddin from China and USA, as proper Pakistan itself. Extreamly worried, Indian leaders calls for UN Security Council to intervene.

January 23rd, 1980. Addresing the nation, President Carter presents his doctrine, which stated that the United States would use military force if necessary to defend its national interests in the Persian Gulf. Internally, the the doctrine was criticized for not being backed by sufficient force. Rapid Deployment Joint Task Force is officially formed. 3 Carrier Groups are order to Indian Ocean and Red Sea.

Leonid Breznhev visits New York based UN Hedquarters, and with the world hearing at him, defies US government to ratify SALT II and propose a new pact on Medium range Nuclear Weapons to Europe. The URSS, he says, had been commited to stop the attrocities of a madman in Afghanistan and when their troops came they encountered rebels armed by PRC and the USA. Carter not responds the call. The US president, pressured by the Congress, declares that "The USA never will trust the world of a man that order the killing of a madman and the replacement of an old fashioned repressive government, to set up a more eficient and powerfull killing machine to do the job. Premier Breznhev, you have blood in your hands".

March, 1980 - Soviet intelligence detects that French Armed Forces distrust US policies, and prepare plans to be isolated in Europe. Inside NATO, various members have tense discussions about the path US allies are taking.

March 21st, 1980 - Soviet High Command decrees full mobilization. Several Armored and Mechanized Divisions based in East Germany and Checoslovakia are send to Soviet - Chinese border. 3 Armored Cat A divisions are put under command of 40th Army, in Kabul. Cat B Divisions from Leningrad and Ural Districts are send to other points of the sino-soviet border.

April 2nd, 1980 - Soviet planners present a new, final plan to the Politburó. China is going to be attacked by two powerful forces, one from Vladivostok whose primary target Liaoning, covering all the North Korean- chinese border, and another from the Afgan - chinese border, to brak away and penetrate swiftly in the Chinese province of Xinjiang, to then drive towards north and merge with a soviet third column marching from Mongolia. both columns will close an enourmous Pocket. The Politburó, worried about possible nuclear retaliation, is informed of the existence of a previous - firs strike plan "Ivan the Terrible" to nullify Chinese capability to use nuclear weapons.

Soviet Union collapses into a series of warring parties competing to control the future Russian state. Take your pick from various flavors of liberal, nationalist, or communist elements. Pick the course of the war, and make broad political choices to try to curry domestic and international opinion.

Cow too much to the west? Nationalist groups will refuse to join your cause. Try to be Stalin 2.0? Say hello to NATO bombing raids.

NATO campaigns would be separate from the "Grand" campaign and instead focus on more narrow objectives like liberating the Kola Peninsula from the "Baron of Archangel" who's threatening to invade Finland (an excellent chance to include the "Viking" forces), or including some Blue Dragon elements in an attempt to secure Vladivostok and it's associated nuclear weapons. There could even be a weird Blue+Red vs Red campaign in which a US-German task force with Polish support fights to relieve a pro-western revolution in the Ukraine.

Oh, and sarcastic answer:

Spoiler : :
After the entirety of the French military is committed to the Korean theater in 1992, Russian forces invade France disguised as a hoard of Jerry Lewis impersonators. Will France fall to the red menace, or will the US Army save the day for the third time in a century?
Do I look like a reasonable man to you, or a peppermint nightmare?
