An Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile, or ICBM, is a long-ranged (greater than 5,500 km or 3,500 miles) ballistic missile typically designed for nuclear weapons delivery, that is, delivering one or more nuclear warheads.

History[edit | edit source]

Second World War[edit | edit source]

These missiles were first developed by the Soviet Union in the Second World War at the Dark Horseman military base under the supervision of Vladimir Kosygin and first deployed against Europe when the base was attacked. The crisis was thankfully averted and missiles were disabled in flight.

Third World War (1972)[edit | edit source]

The Soviet Union had an absolutely gargantuan stockpile of these missiles, compared to the relatively puny arsenal the Allies had in the Third World War. The Allies had at least three, while the Soviet Union had thousands of missiles, thus making a nuclear war suicide for the Allied Nations. However the entire Allied arsenal was destroyed courtesy of Yuri's mind control. Thus forcing the Allies to use the Weather Control Device in their stead.

Third World War, third iteration[edit | edit source]

With the timeline erasure of Albert Einstein before the third iteration of the Third World War, the Nuclear Missile was not seen anymore but a Vacuum Imploder missile took its place instead.
