A tour to the silos in the Museum of Strategic Missile Forces


    Answering the numerous demands of our esteemed visitors and friends, in 2014 Chernobyl –TOUR opens for visiting one more special place, which doesn’t have any analogies in the world - this place is silos in the Museum of Strategic Missile Forces.

    If in the Chernobyl zone you can learn about the warning systems (Duga "Duga-1" - "Chernobyl-2"), then there you’ll have a chance to see what, in fact, these systems were warning about – nuclear missiles. Feature of the Strategic Missile Forces museum is that it is not a typical boring museum with rooms filled with the dusty exhibits. It’s made on the basis of the disbanded the 309th Regiment the 46th Division the 43rd Missile Army Strategic Missile Forces of the USSR. The call sign of the Regiment was "Taimen”.
   This is a real military base, which has become a museum. There you can see with your own eyes the most powerful missile R-36M2 "Governor", nicknamed "Satan" which scared to death the USA and the whole world.

    Retired soldiers will tell about the history of their missile army and of the mighty Soviet nuclear arms. You will pass through the territory of a fighting position, visit nearby silo launcher, where the missiles of the 46th missile Division stood on duty, including famous missiles R-12, that the USSR has placed in Cuba, and they played a certain role in the Caribbean crisis.

    You’ll feel like a missile warrior descended into the forty-meter silo of the command post. You’ll have an opportunity to sit at the control panel and by pressing a combination of keys you may perform the "start" of nuclear missiles. After launching the missile you’ll hear the heartbreaking sirens because some of the electronic equipment at the fighting position still works. There will also be an opportunity to see the life of the Strategic Missile Forces soldiers who went on duty, they were in complete isolation in the depths of nuclear silos for several days .

    These and many other ex-combat exposures, await for you in this interesting and informative journey.
