Strategic Missile Force Base

27 June - Pervomaysk - Tim

The command centre is hidden in a shaft about 50m below the surface. From there the Soviets were able to ‘push the red button’ and launch 10 missiles at the same time. Not the one at display outside though, that is a ‘Satan’, an ever bigger guy that has the power of about 10 Hiroshima’s. The lovely girl enthusiastically mentioned that Russia still owns 56 of these active missiles, but only uses these to launch satellites into space.
