    There's so many ways to go with this. Play up the communist aspect; the EVA program is the result of combined labor. Describe dozens of workers handling each part of the prep process, and throw in dogmatic speeches about the will of the People being stronger than the will of God.

    Give the human defense troops a slightly bigger part, up to and including a standard entrenched position being stomped by an Angel... after one hell of a fight.

    Also, someone (maybe the Gendo equivalent) should be grappling with the problem of communist unification being no different from the whole God-amalgam thing.

    OP here, good to see somebody's taking this idea and running with it.

    A thought: Perhaps Second Impact set off the long-awaited nuclear holocaust, and the West collapsed while Russian stoicism pushed them through and let them rebuild as a trans/postnational communist state enveloping most of Europe and Asia? Emphasizes the whole Russia strong thing, and allows for UN forces in the setting to be replaced entirely with communist ones.

    Also, with the memory of the Great Patriotic War in mind, would Asuka be seen differently, I'm wondering?

    Well, you just gotta switch on the acid bath before that happens. That might be hard though with the whole "Unit X is berserking and it's not responding to signals from mission control!" problem. So you might have something that switches on the acid in the event of ANY berserking or LoS with control, which would lend itself to a very soviet policy of issuing an eva to one pilot and having 12 waiting in the wings to wash him out of the plug with a hose.

    OOO! A switch that turns the entry plug into a microwave! That's good too.

    Actually, this was NATO's plan. The Soviets renounced the first strike doctrine because they had fewer nukes and knew they'd lose in that case. The Americans, meanwhile, knew they had fewer men on the ground (women too, which was part of why the conventional weapons gap favoured the Soviets) and would lose in a conventional war, so they decided the best plan was nuking the Soviet forces if they tried to invade.

    If the French had some actual cohesion in their defense and strategy, you'd see stories of how French heavy tanks were bitch slapping all the early German tanks.

    >Russian Eva is twice as heavy as standard models

    Seriously? This would be understandable if the Soviets actually went out and made tanks like the T-10 or IS-7 their choice for an MBT.

    Also this article is amazing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_experimentation_in_the_United_States

    >In 1955, the CIA conducted a biological warfare experiment where they released whooping cough bacteria from boats outside of Tampa Bay, Florida, causing a whooping cough epidemic in the city, and killing at least 12 people.

    >In 1956 and 1957, several U.S. Army biological warfare experiments were conducted on the cities of Savannah, Georgia and Avon Park, Florida. In the experiments, Army bio-warfare researchers released millions of uninfected mosquitoes on the two towns, in order to see if the insects could potentially spread yellow fever and dengue fever. Hundreds of residents contracted a wide array of illnesses, including fevers, respiratory problems, stillbirths, encephalitis, and typhoid. Army researchers pretended to be public health workers, so that they could photograph and perform medical tests on the victims. Several people died as a result of the experiments.

    >From 1946 to 1953, at the Walter E. Fernald State School in Massachusetts, in an experiment sponsored by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and the Quaker Oats corporation, 73 mentally disabled children were fed oatmeal containing radioactive calcium and other radioisotopes, in order to track "how nutrients were digested". The children were not told that they were being fed radioactive chemicals and were told by hospital staff and researchers that they were joining a "science club".

    I had a similar idea for a setting where walking tanks/crude organic mecha were deployed by the Russians in Afghanistan, allowing them to conquer the country and eventually most of the middle east. Cue 2026 and the organic mecha have become miniature EVAs on crack, the air is clogged with radioactive dust, and the cold war is almost at a boiling point.

    Well, the stereotype comes to us from Rocky IV (Or was it Rocky III? Whatever) that Russians are inherently larger and tougher than normal folks.

    Ignoring armor design principles, Evangelions are meant to be people, except bigger. Well, 'people', in that they're horrific Freudian abominations that may or may not be people's moms, but I digress.

    The Russian stereotype has always been "Tougher than Thou." How do you get across that kind of no nonsense, winter surviving, liver hardening, backflipping hatchet throwing character into the EVAs? Naturally, the first stereotype I think of is "ARMORED BRICKS THAT ARE TOUGH AND UGLY," but maybe you have a better idea. I'd be all ears. Or, eyes in this case I suppose.

    Maybe you're right in terms about the RUgelions being bigger than their NATO brethren to reflect on the actual Russian and Slavic populace that's close to them. But when I think of Evangelions themselves, I see them mostly reflecting on the nation's style of armored warfare and what not.

    It could go either way, I guess. If you're going off very early Cold War Soviet stuff, you could split the Russian Evangelions between the light T-54/55 and the heavier T-10/IS-7.

    Evangelion based on the IS-7, I'd actually like to see that. Remote-controlled guns that are strategically put on the Evangelion's armor.

    200,000 people were killed in the Guatemalan Civil War, while 50,000 were disappeared. The population of Guatemala in 1990 was 8 million. The population of the Soviet Union under Stalin was 150 million. 150 million divided by 8 million equals 18.75. 250,000 times 18.75 equals 4,867,500. Stalin is usually accused of killing between 3 and 20 million people, though the latter figures are vast and are generally gained by taking the growth rate of the Soviet Union before he came to power, calculating how many people should have been in the Soviet Union and then subtracting the actual 1939 population from that number and calling everybody not there a person that Stalin killed. Doing the same thing for America produces 10 million deaths caused by Roosevelt, meaning that that math is pretty fucking stupid.

    Not a bad idea I suppose. Maybe make it more rounded? Just the first thing I noticed in the T-80/M1 Abrams comparison. The Evangelions in the original show were very angular, all elbows and knees. Maybe RUgelions would be more rounded, so that rounds would glance off more.

    And what you mentioned about the cannons was interesting too. Though I wouldn't go so far as to eliminate the hands and separate weapons (Clearly inefficient with even the slightest consideration, but it's what makes an EVA an EVA instead of a amazingly poorly designed tank), they should definitely have built in weapons. Layers upon layers of reactive armor that'll spray a blizzard of red hot razor sharp metal, inset turrets to spray flame, a pilot mannable machine gun on the cockpit door in case the worst comes to the worst...

    Maybe have them more squat- still with long limbs for optimum maneuverability, but with the neck set in and the body hunched over to present less of a target?

    Kinda hard to try and make the already lithe Evas even more lithe. I'd say that the RU/USSR Evas would have a very utilitarian/martial look to them and not necessarily be rounded in their armor like the IS-3 or a lot of the turrets sported by many of the Cold War-era tanks.

    Asuka is actually the one the Party always puts forward as the public face of the EVA pilots. Sure, Shinji is technically has more kills on his record and Rei actually embodies the socialist ideal more fully, but neither of them are particularly impressive at first glance, Shinji being weak and shy and Rei being, well just all kinds of creepy. Asuka on the other hand is healthy, beautiful and high-spirited. So they put her in a glorious red Evangelion and prop her up as everything a young woman of the motherland should be.

    Of course, when the cameras are off, she's an anti-authoritarian, disrespectful nightmare. But with NERV's Political Officer breathing down her neck she knows better than to go too far, especially when people can see her.

    That could contribute to her breakdown; as Shinji slowly becomes more confident, the spotlight starts to inch towards him, causing her to fixate on the idea of "evening the score" by trying for a solo kill or three.

Stamped with the official hammer and sickle, covered with oddly scrawled Cyrillic letters in what the boy suspected was a mix of charcoal and blood. She was leaning down, smiling, exposing the... formidable assets that stretched her thin tank-top to breaking.

    Shinji sighed again, pulling his hood back down. He moved the sleeve of his coat a tiny bit to see his watch, immediately regretting it when the freezing wind wrapped around his wrist. If Japan was cursed with an endless summer, this city must have fallen back into an ice age. A bit strange, considering how close the two were. But any climate-related thoughts soon passed, as Shinji's ears were assaulted by the boom of distant artillery.

    The power lines shook with the ground. He opened his eyes, and saw an angel. A pale girl in a school uniform, standing just up the road, staring at him. The snow passed through her. Another blast almost made the boy lose his balance, and then- in a blink, she was gone. A barrage of rockets passed overhead, swinging around an outlying building, control wires spooling out behind them. They detonated seconds later, finding a target that was slowly, surely moving closer.

    A flight of VTOLs came next. Mi-60s, carrying heavy payloads, blowing the snow off of roofs and window-panes as they passed by. They flew up and over, engines swiveling to hover as they fanned out, loosing a flurry of explosive rounds on the impenetrable shield of the approaching Enemy of the People. Shinji took cover beside the phone booth, covering his ears as the upright monster stomped into the tiny village.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/11(Tue)01:02 No.13822367
    Missiles began to fall like rain. Bullets spattered off the glowing orange shield as the monster lashed out, grabbing one of the circling VTOLs out of the sky and crushing it like a toy. A bomber squadron high above dropped its cluster bombs, showering the beast and the surrounding area with high-explosives. It continued to move, unstoppable, unfazed, wading through fire like a walking battleship. Shinji looked up, briefly, and prayed for his life.

    The rumble of a heavy diesel engine snapped him out of his despair. An APC came barreling out of a side street, tire-studs digging into the pavement, shrapnel spattering off armor plates. It tore through several hundred feet of curb, motor growling like a dragon, before coming to rest just beside the phone booth. Then the top hatch flew open, and Shinji's savior lifted herself out of the cab, grinning like a maniac.

    “Miss me?” she laughed, waving a rather large mug at the petrified boy. An incredibly large explosion bloomed just behind the vehicle, breaking every window in the immediate vicinity and moving her hair slightly. Somehow, she managed to lean all the way over, one foot hooked into the hatch-ring, grab Shinji with one arm, and retreat back inside like a startled turtle snapping into its shell.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/11(Tue)01:03 No.13822379
    “We go now,” she said, setting the boy on her lap as the hatch slammed down, trapping them both in the armored coffin. With one swift movement, she shifted into reverse, spun the heavy machine around, and sped off down the same street she'd come out of, narrowly avoiding being horribly crushed beneath the foot of the Enemy.

    “You are Comrade Shinji, yes?” the woman asked, one arm wrapped around the boy and the other on the wheel. At his terrified nod, she continued, stating, “I am Milena. Welcome to Vladivostok-3!”

    But Comrade Shinji did not feel welcome. He did not feel welcome at all.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/11(Tue)01:10 No.13822419
    Only made worse by the fact that, as Shinji becomes more socially acceptable, the propaganda office insists on creating the impression that they are in love because it makes for good pictures.

    I'd have a few states retain some degree of independence (say, Japan, India, Brazil)... but I can't see them escaping more subtle Russian influence, assuming the Chinese and the West aren't part of the equation anymore. Japan doesn't have enough natural resources to go solo, Brazil would be ripe for a leftist takeover, given the conditions of 1980s Brazil, and India was already kind of in bed with the Soviets so they probably wouldn't really be fucked with.

    I ran a Soviet Ghost in the Shell campaign where the characters were cyborg spies and warriors headhunted from the KGB, GRU etc and put together into a special section tasked with investigating the other agencies. The first mission had them infiltrating a factory making spider tanks where parts had been siphoned off to a secret group assembling an army, and interrogating a worker that was drinking on the job and mistook them for safety inspectors. They also solved a hostage crisis in the American embassy in Moscow by shooting every terrorist in a syncronized assault and disappearing in a Hind before the enhanced, cyborg Marines could make their way up the roof.

    "I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world." - Ronald Reagan
    Under cover of the 15th Soviet Antarctic Expedition, Second Impact occurs in 1970. The major world powers quickly join together to form Seele, Gehirn and Nerv in an uneasy peace. The actual game takes place in 1985. The players should make international characters, including at least one from both America and the Soviet Union. The angels should attack all around the world, especially in places where international incidents might be provoked, like nuclear facilities or heavily populated cities. The DM should give the players challenges that involve avoiding major diplomatic problems between nations, like, say, the Soviet pilot accidentally obliterating the White House. If they fail, there's war between the two superpowers, with everybody involved (at this time, China and Pakistan are American clients, while India is a Soviet client). Throw in some historical figures too, like have a public relations event where the pilots have to shake hands with Gorbachev and Reagan. If war manages to be successfully avoided, you can throw it in after all the angels have been defeated and see who wins then.

    "The enemy has breached the seventh defensive line! Arrival at Tunguska Base... four minutes!"

    Giennedyi turned to the man beside him. The political officer was young and clearly had not been prepared for what he would see at Tunguska. He stared at the monstrosity on the screen in abject horror.

    "Comrade Ivanov," Giennedyi said, snapping the man out of his trance. He pulled out the red key that hung on a chain underneath his uniform shirt and inserted it into its place on the console. The keyhole next to his stood empty. "The Angel will be here in minutes, Comrade. We must sortie Unit 01."

    "I... I have to... I have to consult with Moscow." the younger man stammered.

    "There's no time! Moscow will support my decision, now get your key!"

    Honestly, Shinji would be the logical choice for the public face of the Evangelion pilots. In his desperation for love and acceptance, he works himself to the bone, on and off the battlefield, despite not really wanting to. He also has a shyness and aversion to publicity that makes it easy to spin the "HE'S FIGHTING NOT FOR GLORY, BUT FOR THE GOOD OF ALL MANKIND!" angle. Basically, he's a working class hero, and the fact that he wins all his fights is just gasoline on the fire of the propaganda machine. Asuka's desperate need for acceptance manifests as her becoming a child prodigy with a huge ego, which undermines her usefulness. Rei, despite her self-sacrificing nature, is a genetically engineered human, which makes her anathema to the party line, as most of genetics was during much of the Soviet era, because admitting that people are born with different capabilities and predispositions undermines the egalitarian ideals of the Party. With Shinji, meanwhile, they can have all the kiddies eating out of their hands with claims that they, too, might some day be Evangelion pilots.

    Considering the general theme of Soviet engineering as being cheap, utilitarian, and simple, the Soviet Evas would probably have a very stripped down look compared to the Evas we know from the show. All that armor would have to go, for one thing -- it serves no practical purpose, as it would be about as effective as tissue paper against anything that can break through an AT field, anything that can't break through would never touch it, and it wastes massive amounts of money and materials that could be used for other projects. Thus, armor would be the bare minimum needed to make the Evas look presentable. The "New People" aspect suggested early on in the thread would never fly -- it stinks of eugenics and genetics, which are both anathema to the Soviet regime -- instead, the fact that they're basically copies of Angels would probably be publicised and played up as an example of Soviet Science copying and perfecting the imperfect weapons of the enemy to use against them.

    The problem with Shinji is that he's too likely to quit when things get too tough. For all his need for acceptance and tendency to push himself beyond the limit, he is still ultimately unreliable. Asuka may be in it for less outwardly noble reasons, but those can be hidden from the public who would then only see her never retreat, attack-attack-attack determination.

    Never retreat, attack-attack-attack isn't a good basis for Soviet propaganda. This isn't the Imperium, after all; they stopped fighting the Great Patriotic War in '45. What they need to instill patriotism is a Hero of the Proletariat, which is what they have in Shinji, who, despite all his whining and running away, is still easy enough to manipulate and push into doing whatever you need. Notably, Asuka is also a child prodigy, which while convenient for publicity early on in the project, lends her that "intrinsically better than you" quality that conflicts with Soviet dogma. Once Shinji is in the picture, he's going to be the one dead center on all the propaganda posters.

    I knew you'd say that. Point is, it's also completely fucking useless for that; any Eva that wants to go berserk is going to, and no amount of restraints, armor-shaped or otherwise, are going to stop that. No one working on the project, who would be expected to know what exactly they were dealing with, would think otherwise. What you would want to do instead would be to place remote-triggered explosives that would sever the Eva's spine at strategic locations in case it went out of control in an undesirable manner. Armor is expensive to maintain and repair, but Evas and Angels regenerate on their own so long as the core is in one piece, so a bit of catastrophic damage to the Eva's body will serve as cost-effective damage control for less readily regenerating things, like cities and teams of brilliant scientists.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/11(Tue)20:28 No.13830810
    The armor is actually useful on its own, besides just keeping the EVA under control. Angels tend to explode when you kill them (classic series Angels, anyway.) When you're up in something's grill (i.e. your A.T. Fields are neutralized) and it explodes, you want those layers of armor to keep you from frying along with it.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/11(Tue)20:37 No.13830905
    I call bullshit on the claim that the armor does anything against exploding Angles.
    There's no amount of armor in the world that would actually protect anything from that kind of explosion, short of coating the Eva in a small mountain of steel. "Small" here meaning "several dozen meters thick in all directions." That's simply impractical, so I'm just going to assume that the AT field isn't nearly as cancelled as you think it is. As supporting circumstantial evidence, I bring you the cases of Ramiel, whose weapon was confirmed as being powerful enough to just cut straight through an AT field without prior neutralization, and which melted the armor on Unit-01 to slag, and Zeruel, who cut through armor and AT field alike with equal impunity. Really, the only practical piece of armor we see in the series are in these two battles, where that plating over the core gives it a precious few seconds of survivability. All the other armor is purely decorative.

    Don't get me wrong, the AT Field is the most important defense. But to say the armor is useless is going a little far. A: it does provide some defense against attacks when the AT Field is weakened or neutralized. B: barring some truly extraordinary circumstances, it restrains the EVA's power and keeps it under control.

    Also the argument about lowering the armor to "the bare minimum needed to make the thing presentable" ignores the fact that the current armor is basically there anyway. Remove any single piece and the true creature underneath immediately becomes apparent.

    Well, yeah, the chest plate saves the day both against Ramiel and against Zeruel, but no other piece of armor seems to serve as anything except expensive canon-fodder for the Angels to reduce to a fine metallic mist at the drop of a hat. Shamshel and Gaghiel, two of the weakest Angels, punched right through the stomach armor without even trying. Zeruel ripped limbs and heads off practically at will. The options are either to coat the Eva in such an absurd amount of armor that its mobility advantage is completely eliminated, or just admit that most of the armor does nothing and get rid of it to cut the inevitable repair costs.

    Think of possible environmental damage perhaps damaging the bare-bones Eva in the event of combat in a generally rugged area, I'd say that's a good enough reason to have it, as the AT field likely wouldn't be able to shit against it.

    Honestly, as nice as it would be, I can't imagine the Soviet EVAs looking that much more different than their German, US, or Japanese counterparts. If only because it'd be like taking away the armor from 40k's Space Marines and trying to give them a hard-science look like Halo's Spartans. It just doesn't work out right.

    If anything, I'd just imagine the Soviet/Russian EVAs simply slightly block-ier shaped armor, more pronounced chest armor, and generous use of up-scaled ERA blocks. Somewhat a combination of the Super EVA and F-Type armor.

    Damn it, I'm starting to sexualise the EVAs now.

    Yep, that's the one. Seems I misremembered what exactly it looked like, but Master Chief is still inexplicably there, looking on impassively at the skyscraper legs.
    That would be the hottest thing ever.

    I just had borscht for the first time on Saturday night. Stuff is weird yo. It looks like it should be spicy (because it's red), but it's not. Also, no one told me the white stuff I was adding was sour cream and not whipped cream, so I added way too much.

    Never had it. So what does it taste like? Sweet?

    Red Dawn was paranoid conservative fantasy. Still totally silly, but it was the people who were laying awake at night worrying about the Russians and people who want to take their guns away that were doing it.

    Chewy and kind of bland. Well, the stringy things that I suspect were beef were chewy.

    That's the Ukrainian kind, then. Supposedly more authentic, but also bland as fuck. Sour cream is also traditional, but really only makes it blander.
    Personally, I prefer the poor Soviet vegeterian variety. My mother and grandmother both cook it gloriously, and it actually comes off a bit spicy from all the pepper.

    Yeah, it was Ukrainian New Year in Calgary. New to the area, my home city has no Ukrainians except recent immigrants, so I'd never been before.
