Entrance into "Object 100". Many years ago, it used to be camouflaged with a special screen.

In 1954, when the cold war was in its height, they decided to build the first underground missile complex in the world. Several thousand builders were involved in construction works. Each worker’s background was thoroughly checked plus they had to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The missile shaft.

The rocket complex with a cruise missile C-2 was situated 500 m above sea level and was aimed to destroy enemy ships.

They used heat-resistant concrete to build the complex. Missiles were kept on special trays with their wings folded and were moved to their starting positions with special mechanisms.

    What was the name of the movie shot there and intended as Rambo-II counterpart? Was it “Odinochnoye plavaniye”?

    “This place once became scenery for a movie which was sort of a response to Rembo-2. It is impossible to imagine how they managed to get a permission to shoot a movie in a secret complex!”…Imagine this then my friend, Rubles, lots of them in the right hands, then permission granted.

    That’s how crazy the dopey cold war was. Some bureaucrat in Moscow had the job where he felt it was necessary to respond to Rambo of all people. Rambo in America is entertainment on a level with a cartoon. However, it was someone’s job to
    create an official response to what amounts to a cowboy and indian flick.

    How interesting. This is the infrastructure that we in the West were afraid of in the 1970s and 80s. To see it now is of great interest, as it shows that the past is just the past, it’s well over. We’re in a wonderful new world, and bad memories can be forgotten. Thank you.
