Do you know The Handmaid's Tale? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Handmaid%27s_Tale_(TV_series)

What about a Gilead GB?

USA converted into an economically challenged country, has to use only cheap weapons or assets from preGilead era conviniently refurbished.

How about "Meatwagon Group Build"?  Aircraft, armor, trucks, boats, ships, or spacecraft built or modified as ambulances? 

I have a Swordfish I have been wanting to turn into one  ;)

Just a classic:

Luftwaffe GB

Two RW periods (1924-1945 and 1955-today) and some alternative scenarios (Luft'46, ...)

Based on the suggestion of a Cobra in Iranian colours, how about "the Iranian Revolution never happened" or it happened later on in the late 80s or 90s.

With the long and interesting shopping list pre-revolution Iran had there could have been many, many, interesting options.


Just of the top of my head:

- Kidd Class destroyer were built for Iran
- The wanted Kortenaer Class frigates as well (Mk45 5" instead of 3")
- Challenger MBT was actually designed for them
- They expressed interest in Invincible Class carriers
- They expressed interest in Sea Harrier
- Bell had a number of interesting developments underway for them, some continued some didn't
- The wanted F-16s
