Experience a thrill of pressing the launch button in the former nuclear missile base lauch room located 40 metres underground!
Have you ever pushed a launch button in the launch room of the nuclear missile base? The siren starts, the silo opens and ten missiles are released into the air in ten seconds. Thanks God, it has never happened! Nevertheless, a visit to the only Strategic missile forces museum is a vivid impression. Especially due to the fact that it used to be a real Soviet Union Nuclear missile base with most of the military hardware preserved from the operating times.
Retired soldiers tell the stories about missile units and nuclear weaponry of the Great and Mighty Soviet Union. Throughout the Cold War in 1970-s strategic missile bases were deployed all over the vast territories of Russia, Belorussia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. Every missile base administered dozens of nuclear warheads. Many of these bases are still functioning. We are going to visit the only missile base opened to the public.
The General Secretary of the Soviet Union could launch four of the most powerful nuclear missiles with a single press of the button directly from Moscow.
Nuclear missiles all around the Soviet Union were programmed to automatically propel itself to the preliminary marked targets. When the 46th missile unit had been discontinued in 1999, the targets names were disclosed revealing the fact, that nuclear missiles from the base had been aimed at strategic locations not only in the USA but also in Europe.
