Sino-Soviet relationship

Recommended Posts

While wandering through some Classified intelligence, I thought it would be a little nice to actually give you some real life information about that time. This thread includes no new information, but it might set a better atmosphere for the era we have to think in while investigating the documents.

 

Time: The Cold War

Location: The "East"

 

In BO4's map Classified, the following document was found:

9TZBY50.png

A report written by the CIA member Cornelius Pernell, the former assistent of both Peter McCain and the Marine squad including Tank Dempsey. In this paper, he makes a notation about the discovery of the fact that Richthofen made a secret deal with the Soviet Union administration, and so "played both the US and the USSR". Two important details:

  • Richthofen did this around the same time the American Operation Stapler began, in 1946.
  • Richthofen demanded a Global Polarization Device (GPD) of the Soviet Union.

According to this document, the Ascension Group was involved very tightly in this process. As the Eastern GPD was built in Shanghai, it appears that this organization had it's influence reaching even in China. How so? Let me give you some history.

 

Sino-Soviet friendship

 

In the course of World War II, both the Chinese nationalist party and the Chinese communist party, under Mao Zedong, set aside their civil war to fight the Imperial Japanese invasion. Stalin, leader of the USSR, who was fighting a war over land against the Japanese as well (as the Americans were fighting an insular and marine war), cooperated with the Chinese communist party against the Japanese. When WW2 was over and the Chinese Civil War continued, the communist party emerged victorious. China now being communist, the Red Army, however, remained their troops in Manchuria, and kept the spoils of war 'stolen' from the Japanese army (Remember how there are theories discussing the possibility of the Rising Sun facility being in Manchuria?). 

 

It was around this time Richthofen made his deal with the Ascension Group, and they had to fulfill his demands, among which the building of a GPD. As China was a great ally of the USSR, and seemed "under controll", Shanghai was chosen as location for construction. Why China (and not Siberia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, etc), I don't know, but it might have something to do with the relative close proximity of the abandoned Rising Sun Facility. Another possibility is that a Chinese subdivision of the Ascension Group had to handle the GPD, as the Ascension Group itself was focussing on matter transference near the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan.

 

Sino-Soviet split

 

But China didn't remain an ally of the USSR. Mao considered the existing communism too much based on industrialized European societies, while China still was an agrarian one. Thus, he began to transform his ideology into an Asian version: Maoism. This were the first steps towards the so-called Sino-Soviet split. In 1958, Mao started developing the Great Leap Forward, in an efford to make China an industrialized nation. A radio in Kino der Toten summarizes this:

Quote

"(Singing) These villagers were portrayed and propaganda'd films as happy and highly motivated, although in fact they were soon to suffer a terrible moral and physical collapse. Tens of thousands of people died as a result of industrial accidents in the hazardous conditions they were made to work in. The Communist party came up with a crude calculation; every worker will build one meter of canal and the project will end in three months. It actually took more than 10 years to finish the canal.
During the Great Leap Forward, factory worker's hours were doubled and machines began to work non-stop. They were not even allowed to stop for maintenance and repairs, and so soon began to fall apart. Factories were ruined. At the same time, Mao announced another target for the Great Leap Forward. Steel production was to be doubled within one year. That production (static) only from heavy industry complexes, but also from small furnaces in villages. As a result of Communist ideology, Mao believed that workers power held a magical force. With that decision, tens of millions of Chinese set out to produce steel by amateur methods. Everything made of iron they could find, from door knobs to saucepans, was melted down in primitive furnaces in an effort to produce steel. Women cut off their hair and mixed it with the clay in the furnaces."

Costing milions of Chinese lives, Mao succeeded his purpose, and China now was, economically, a potential competitor of the old developed nations. The mighty USSR, however, now felt more vulterable, as the Eastern bloc now included more than one superpower. Chinese de-stalinization and conflicting national interests detorioted the Sino-Soviet relationship even more. The Ascension Group had to regret their location of choice for the GPD, now already built by their Chinese sister organization. As Stalin had died (1953), the USSR and the West started the first bit of reconciliation and cooperation, among which even mutual technological aid for nuclear weapons. China considered the Soviet "peacefull" coexistion with Western nations dangerous, and felt treatened by their northern neighbours. As communism was fracturing, small-scale border wars even started at the Chinese-USSR border. The USSR had the benefit of having nuclear weapons, though, but not for long, however...

 

In the early 1960s, American organizations considered ways to either sabotage or directly attack Chinese nuclear-bomb programs (possibly done by split-offs of the Ascension Group spit-off, complicated eh?), but the USSR government refused a joint Soviet-American fire-strike out of fear launching a nuclear war. At the end of the decade, China had it first nuclear bombs. The American administration warned the Soviet Union that any first-strike now would provoke a nuclear WW3. Distrusting the USSR and aware of their nuclear treat, China started building nuclear bunkers all over the country, among which the Beijing Underground City and Underground Project 131 near the northern border (check out those locations, they look really cool and could even function as a potential zombie map. China and the Soviet Union now were each others enemy number 1.

 

In 1990, the Soviet Union dissolved and the Cold War was officially over. China, however, still owned Richthofen's GPD, as it did during the entire Cold War. For 44 years, an unknown Chinese sciencific research organization had been able to investigate and experiment with Element 115. What countless possibilities could have happened during this time? Why do we have such little intelligent about this subject of the Zombies Saga? To be continued...

I suddenly think about the appearance of a PhD Flopper bottle in Die Rise. As this was an invention of the Ascension Group, this might be the reason of it's presence in Shanghai. More proof that Die Rise was a former Ascension Group (split-off) facility.

Wow, that is a profound observation and gives story depth to one of the greatest Treyarch trolling moments in history. LMAO!

Great breakdown, though. I think we’ll have more to discuss in this area before too long.

PhD Flopper actually has, unlike most other perks, a real story-explained reason to be there: @BlindBusDrivr created a thread where he explains PhD Floppers purpose to let the Ascension monkeys safely re-enter our atmosphere, as it protects them from heat and falling. This is how they survive the Landers coming down during monkey rounds. 

 

However, I wonder how PhD Flopper appeared in Shangri La and Moon. In both maps, I believe crates or oxygen tanks with Russian/Cyrillic words on it can be found. And this while we know both maps were Group 935 facilities, later to be found by Broken Arrow. Broken Arrow's Hanford Facility also has a number of Russian words written on tanks and signs. Why? Is there Soviet involvement in Broken Arrow?
