    This vast former base situated deep in the woods of Latvia is just one of many abandoned missile bases from the times of the Soviet union. This base consists of 4 launch arenas and garages for storage of the warheads.
    The missiles on the base were named R12 and were developed in the 1950s, they have a flight range of 2000 kilometers and a length of 22 meters. The missiles were moved from the storage facilitys out to the launch arenas by truck, the large tower like thing outside the warhead storage has acted as a crane for loading missiles on to the trucks. The area is scattered with underground shelters and houses, i hope you will get a little overview from my pics.

    The area today stands totally desserted as a quiet scary reminder of the capabilitys of the Soviet Union.
