Configuration[edit]

I'm replacing the sentence "Personnel would access the LF and LCC through tunnels connecting the two." in the paragraph; the sentence is important since early ICBMs were physically located next to the operations personnel. Only in the Minuteman system were the ICBMs moved far away from the C2 site. TDRSS (talk) 16:28, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Interesting site pictures on Google Maps[edit]

I doubt there are good and free satelite photos released for printing, but many interesting areas can be seen from above, thanks to Google Maps. By entering one of these locations in Gooogle Maps, there are several clusters of rocket silos well visible at Kastrikum, Urup, Kuril islands, Pacific Russia.

Proposed merger[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The apparent consensus was Do not merge. (sdsds - talk) 05:05, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Oppose: One article focuses on underground facilities (missile silos), the other on above-ground facilities; one on military ICBM's, the other on military and civilian missiles/rockets more generally with an emphasis on spaceflight. Seems distinct enough to me to warrant two articles. Morgan Riley (talk) 14:56, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Oppose, per the above. A crappy idea; they are two completely different subjects. And the propposer, Codename Lisa, has not given any reasons for it. JustinTime55 (talk) 21:06, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Oppose because both are entirely different things. Moreover, Codename Lisa has not given any reason for the proposed merger. - Jayadevp13 15:26, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Article name[edit]

The name "Missile launch facility" does not seem to exactly match this article's content. (Not all missile launch facilities are described.) Instead the more familiar term "Missile silo" might be a better option.... That might have helped prevent the good-faith merge proposal above. (sdsds - talk) 05:09, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
