former regional NIKE sites[edit]

A former regional NIKE command and control site located in north Bothell, WA has been converted into the region 10 headquarters for FEMA as well as a US Army Reserve unit. The former bunker complex is occupied by FEMA.

A former NIKE launch site located in Lake Forest Park, WA has been converted into a large water reservoir and the Horizon View Park. It actually has line-of-sight to the former NIKE command and control center in Bothell, WA.

"NIKE MANOR," military housing for the former NIKE site can be located in Brier, WA. It is now known as "Fox Glen."

KC-30 in Pleasant Hill, MO is still powered with working bay doors and launch platform. Some buildings still stand but unfortunately I don't know exactly what the buildings that still stand were used for. Several old vehicles also remain scattered around. Rhonk (talk) 00:59, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Can somebody add a (non-copyright) picture to this article of the IFC area (trailers, Acq, MTR, TTR and TRR)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:29, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Nike list[edit]

Might want to make a list of bases article since it is growing, and leave tech details here. pohick (talk) 01:50, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

ok done, made List of Nike Missile Locations seems definative, deleted unnotable site in this article. pohick (talk) 23:39, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

jetds nominclature[edit]

what would be nice is if someone could change the sorry acronyms for proper JETDS nominclature. so people would know the actual radar systems used.

Units of Measure[edit]

These sytems were in the USA. In the USA we use POUNDS and MILES instead of kilograms and kilometers. Please someone change this so that Americans from the USA can actually understand the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BrianAlex (talkcontribs) 15:06, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Done. —MJCdetroit (yak) 01:37, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

The "Survivors:Bases" section should either be removed or replaced.[edit]

I noticed a [citation needed] tag in the Survivors section and figured I'd quickly look up sources for the bases since there are only 3 listed, but found that no reliable sources are available for some of the statements made and sources provide conflicting information (the National Park Service's site says that [[SF-88] is the only restored Nike site in the country, but a few articles refer to NY-56 in Fort Hancock as having been restored. Considering there's a whole article for List of Nike missile locations, the Bases section should either be redirected to that page or rewritten and sourced. The list of Nike Missiles on display is unsourced but looks accurate, maybe it deserves its own page like the list of missile sites?

I'd appreciate any feedback, I'm not 100% sure what the best way to go about it is and I don't want to just jump in and make huge edits to an article, especially since I'm logging in from a blocked IP range. IanH84 (talk) 13:25, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

no citations?[edit]

For such a good article it is strangely lacking in sources. Anyone have material that could be cited to support this article? Perhaps drawing from the pages about the individual rockets in the Nike project? Obotlig interrogate 22:44, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
