• How a secret base now looks USSR Gomel-30

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union tried to completely secure all its borders. On the far western territories - in Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine set up secret nuclear garrisons. This is required to ensure that in case of escalation of the conflict would get faster missiles to countries likely opponent. One of those places was the secret base Gomel-30. Let's see what has become the worst nuclear burial today.

Spetskompleks

Spetskompleks Gomel-30 was created as a check base of nuclear warheads. Here from the neighboring countries and districts brought charges to confirm their suitability for the production on account of the combat. Electronics and the charge itself were sealed and sent away on military duty. Of course, all held in the strictest secrecy - find out about such a complex enemy and the entire border could remain without nuclear weapons.

Defense

Needless to say, without covering a secret object is left. Machine-gun had been placed around the perimeter of the base nestled in the woods. The barbed wire fence was still not so easy to find: Gomel-30 was built in the woods, forbidding the locals to approach even to the edge of the forest.

TSBH

The so-called TSBH complexes (Central Database Storage of nuclear weapons) have been in the country a little bit. These centers were a kind of transshipment point between the secret factory and the secret unit working attendants nuclear missiles.

Living Area

The territory was divided into two zones, residential and technical. Living there now, it was renamed in the village district. Technical same mislaid further into the forest - a huge area in the 2, 5x2, 5 km, which are now abandoned storage bins.

Mass grave

Military spetsbatalona Ministry of Internal Affairs, who served on site protection, jokingly dubbed bunkers storage "mass grave." The fact is that any extraordinary situation inside was solved very simply: Hermetic doors were closed in just 60 seconds - who did not, that is already too late forever. All 6 bins stood at a great distance from each other and thus the time stoped at one accident saved all other stores.

Storage

Needless storage is a concrete bunker considerable size. Inside, though boxes for cars, there were nuclear warheads. Above the entrance to the underground complex erected special tents are designed to protect from satellite reconnaissance. Shells fell down the narrow-gauge railway on a hand cart.

masking

From the height of the complex is almost imperceptible. Take a look for yourself - is it possible to imagine that in this nondescript barn (albeit very large) stores advanced weapons superpower? In addition, on each of the bins poured a high mound of earth. It not only masks the input, but also reduces the possibility of damage caused by a nuclear strike.

District

Today, the once closed city of Gomel-30 turned into a relatively peaceful village district. It has never been on any maps - a classic Soviet "mailbox", which did not let outsiders and are reluctant to let the locals. Nothing more reminiscent of the secret base of nuclear weapons, that slowly rots dead dinosaur just down the road.
