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
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.

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)
