** At the beginning of WW2 in 1949, jet fighters were still experimental and most infantry ran around with bolt-action rifles. Horses were as common as trucks. By the end in 1955, everyone had assault rifles, the Allies were hiding behind rips in space-time, the Soviets were fielding tanks the size of houses and could make them invicible shortly, VTOL jet fighters were the norm, and jet packs and lightning guns were being employed.

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: The Syndicate educate people and create jobs world-wide and build massive megacities (their Sprawls) to house them. [[GenreSavvy They do that because it's easier to milk a population that loves than one which hates them]]. This also makes it harder for the Allies to take action against them.

* CyberPunk: Neon lights. Cybernetic power armour. Rogue AIs. Absolute lack of respect for human life. Their Hero is even an evil {{Expy}} to ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'' Hero Motoko Kusanagi and Molly Millions from the ''SprawlTrilogy''.

* TheSpaceRace: In this setting it's less about getting to the moon and more about ensuring orbital superiority, though so far space military has been so expensive that there has been an orbital Cold War even as the Allies and Soviets fight for real.
* TheVietnamWar: South Vietnam forces (ARVN) and Vietcong are in the game, supported by the Allies and Soviets, respectively.
