Early cold war games?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ive been trying to find a game, preferably a strategy game, that covers the early cold war and the quite awesome military hardware of the time (from 1948ish-1960ish), specifically the planes of the USAF like the B-36, B-47, B-58, B-52, F-86 etc...
This period seems to be completely ignored by devs and would make for a spectacular game, especially one of a hypothetical war between the USSR and the USA before the advent of ICBMs

or if you have a ps3, get the HD collection, metal gear in general is awesome so i'm sure you'll enjoy them.

also, get the first game for the ps1 from the psn store.
