History EditThe North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO /ˈneɪtoʊ/; French: Organisation du Traité de l'Atlantique Nord; OTAN), also called the North Atlantic Alliance, was an intergovernmental military alliance based on the North Atlantic Treaty which was signed on 4 April 1949. The organization constituted a system of collective defence whereby its member states agreed to mutual defence in response to an
attack by any external party. NATO was little more than a political association until the Korean War galvanized the organization's member states, and an integrated military structure was built up under the direction of two US supreme commanders. The course of the Cold War led to a rivalry with nations of the Warsaw Pact, which formed in 1955. Doubts over the strength of the relationship between the European states and the United States ebbed and flowed, along with doubts over the credibility of the NATO defence against a prospective Soviet invasion—doubts that led to the development of the independent French nuclear deterrent and the withdrawal of France from NATO's military structure in 1966 for 30 years. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the organization was drawn into the breakup of Yugoslavia, and conducted its first military interventions in Bosnia from 1992 to 1995 and later Yugoslavia in 1999. Politically, the organization sought better relations with former Warsaw Pact countries, several of which joined the alliance in 1999 and 2004. It continued operations at a low leading up to the ACMF-NATO war.
NATO was the main belligerent in the ACMF-NATO war, and is a strategic military alliance in the ATF universe. The organization is now, much like its ACMF adversary, a remnant of its former self due to the events of the flash. However, much of the pre-war equipment is still retained by NATO descendants, and this combined with their upbringing of military training results in a effective and capable force, although many members are isolated from each other.
