VEC9 – Vector Arcade Game Trailer

Awesome looking vector arcade machine made by the folks over at

In 1984, a top-secret Soviet initiative launches Russia's final attempt to win the space race AND the cold war.

Its codename: VEC9.

Nuclear-powered laser-armed bombers are stationed in orbit, their pilots cryogenically frozen to mask their heat signature. The iron curtain falls. Thirty years later, the last forgotten Soviet radio beacons sputter to a halt. Unable to re-establish contact with the non-existent Soviet Command, Station VEC9 has no choice but to assume that the USSR has been destroyed by capitalist deceit and nuclear fire.

VEC9's mission: to avenge Mother Russia, to punish imperialist aggression, and to destroy tyranny and the American way of life for the safety of the Communist world.
