    Visited Greenham Common after i seeing OTs reports a few weeks ago.

    A bit of info.

    GAMA (GLCM Alert and Maintenance Area) was a maximum security QRA (Quick Reaction Alert) area with 6 large above ground shelters in which fully operational cruisemissiles were stored.

    These shelters were specially designed and constructed to protect the GLCM’s and crews against nuclear and conventional strikes. They were appx. 10m high, with a reinforced 2m thick concrete ceiling. Below was a massive titanium plate, appx. 3m of sand and a reinforced concrete plate. The whole thing was completely covered with tons of clay. Each shelter was equipped with 3 hydraulic nuclear blast proof doors at both ends to assure a quick entry or exit.

    They could withstand the blast of any nuclear air explosion above the base or any full hit from a 2500lb conventional bomb.

    Each shelter contained 2 LCC Launch Control Centers and 4 TEL Transporter Erector Launchers. Each unit was very mobile and supposed to leave the base in convoys to their secret preset dispersal sites. This would happen within minutes after the alert and the movement was via the local roads through the surrounding villages.
