(OOC) A few history questions about CoH




I'm trying to build a background for my character and I can't seem to find any answers. I don't know if there is any official answers, anyway.

1.) Around what year is it, in game?
2.) How close is the history to modern day? Meaning, was there a Korean War, Vietnam, did Kennedy get assassinated, did the Soviet Union crumble, etc.
3.) When exactly was the Rikti invasion (time frame versus current game time)?

Thanks. I just can't seem to find these answers.
