Please bear with me, this is my very first attempt at anything more one ship at a time.
Firstly the back story - as it is in my mind I would welcome some help to make it a bit more believable.
May 1st 1979. The East German reistence group Action 19 newley formed with the aim of reuniting Germany through force, planned its first attack. The mission centred on the killing of a KGB Captain by the name of Aloyna (meaning Light) on his way to start his new posting in a small town east of Berlin called Wemeuchen.
As the trucks with passed by on the road to Wemeuchen in the dead of night, explosives ripped through the 3 vehicles killing all in side them. As the Action 19 fighters converged on the vehicles they found no evidence of the KGB Captain, in an attempt to buy more time the 3 vehicles were pushed into the river that ran along side the road. Leaving the scene as quickly as they could, they melted into the country side.
This is what we have learned from evidence provided by Russia after the outbreak. The vehicles were carrying two viles of Russian Ebola-C a new Biopreparat centre creation. The weapon designed to targeted enemy water systems, the results can be seen in the map below. Much of Western Europe fell to the plague.
This is my Great Britain since 1979. Since the day Europe fell silent.
