All of the previous cities are radioactive craters and most of Zaire is contaminated with fallout. A lot a lot. So Berlin kills, but in an environmentally and socially concious way: There’s a nice hook there for what exactly moscow is going to do once it’s completed it’s mission, especially if it’s correct in the assumption it’s going to do so within one generation.
