Strategic Missile Forces Museum

Containers for missiles and their parts.

R-36 (NATO reporting name SS-18 Satan) is one of the most powerful intercontinental ballistic missiles in the world. This is one of the latest modifications adopted on combat duty in 1988. One of the main features of this missile is the concept of assured retaliation. It was designed to be able to destroy the target no matter any opposition.

The silo of the SS-18 has ultra protection from a nuclear explosion. The missile can fly out of the silo even after the latter was hit by another missile. It is also protected from gamma radiation and electromagnetic pulses. Nuclear warheads are protected as well. They can only be destroyed by a direct hit of a pretty powerful missile.

The missile can fly up to 15.000 km. The takeoff weight is over 200 tons. Now it is adapted for peaceful purposes and serves for putting the satellites into space.

Move on to the once guarded closure.

The guide demonstrates the radio beam emitter that clearly captured all movements. For Rambo and ninjas able crawling deftly and jumping high there was another capacitive sensor that just couldn’t be outsmarted by a human.

You’ve crossed the first two barriers and rush further to barbecue on the cover of a missile silo? Then get ready for recharging your Ipad and mobile phone from the first warning 800 volts and the second control ones in 3600. Those who are in rubber suits will have to deal with a mine strip.

If you were lucky enough to overcome all the barriers you are welcomed by the gun on an armored turret. This building, by the way, has no any doors. The entrance is underground and it’s protected by the detail on duty.

    I think this is a rerun or close to one. I’ve seen some of these things in pictures before, I’m sure of it.

    “besides vodka the Makarov pistol was attached to the kit so that after the whole world had already been destroyed, the officers could make their last decision…”
    American missile crews have similar kit. It contains champagne and tickets to Disney World.

    Ukrainian teenagers with sledgehammers destroyed the remaining missile silos.

    Thus, the 1000 residents of Cut and Shoot, Texas were saved for all time from nuclear annihilation and lived happily ever after.

    Why does a static chair in a missile launch control silo need seatbelts? (2nd pic page 2)

    • ZeroDrop says:

      The whole station has shock absorvers, and the chairs have belts.
      I think when the enemy nuclear bombs are falling, things could got pretty shaky with nuclear explosions!
