4 Secret Moscow Underground Line

Secret Moscow Underground Line

  Report from the U.S. Department of Defense: In 1991, the United States Department of Defense published a report entitled "Military Forces in Transition", which devoted several pages to a secret government underground facility in Moscow. It also included a diagram of the system superimposed on a map of the city. "The Soviets have constructed deep-underground both in urban Moscow and outside the city. These facilities are interconnected by a network of deep interconnected subway lines that provide a quick and secure means of evacuation for the leadership. The leadership can move from their peacetime offices
through concealed entryways in protective quarters beneath the city. There are important deep-underground command posts in the Moscow area, one located at the Kremlin. Soviet press has noted the presence of an enormous underground leadership bunker adjacent to Moscow State University. These facilities are intended for the national command authority in wartime. They are estimated to be 200-300 meters deep, and can accommodate an estimated 10,000 people. A special subway line runs from some points in Moscow and possibly to the VIP terminal at Vnukovo Airfield"

Krasukha-4 – An Army Grade Jammer

"Krasukha - 4" is another weapon of the Russian army. However this weapon doesn't shoot projectiles. Its sole purpose is to generate interference to jam other signals. As the Russian article on it says, it "makes missiles and planes of others blind and deaf literary". I am not sure how literal this is but what I get from it
is that it is a recently released top secret vehicle, with jamming equipment with a range of up to 300 km, that can jam electronics of the enemy planes, and even as they say, satellites. They also say that "if our Krasukha-4 is active we are sure with 99% possibility that enemy will miss our planes."
