It wasn't too long back when these sites were active and very secure. Who would have thought that the sites would end up like this? This site is close to my home, and the local kids love to have paint ball wars there. I was planning on photographing this particular site, one of three close to me- but as it is already on the web, the link follows. Anybody have any ideas as to what is below the ground?

Good link man. Some of the other pictures of the places the he "Infiltrated" are pretty good. I really like the one's of my hometown of Chicago. Wonder why they only put dirt in the doorways, it so easy to remove.

Its really strange walking aoround Battery C- which is but a short drive from my home. It is amazing (to me) at how much of the site has been 'stripped' by the local population. Even the fences have been stolen-LOL- nothing barring entry.
It is spooky walking through the buildings. And then whoa...the paint ball splats are everywhere thousands of them...

Actually, Nike missiles weren't necessarily nuclear....

Nike Ajax - Three high explosive, fragmentation-type warheads arranged at front, center and rear of missile body.

Nike Hercules - Nuclear warhead type "W31"
2 Kilotons (low yield)
20 Kt. (medium yield)
30-40 Kt. (high yield)
or conventional, high explosive, fragmentation type "T-45" warhead.

If memory serves, nike bases are only located in certain spots on the east coast...they were there for defense in the event of a russian attack...this was back when we were paranoid about the reds...highest concentration of nike bases is in the NY/NJ area..

If you do a google search you'll find Nike and other old missile bases for sale, some people turn them into homes and compounds and such.

It's pretty cool actually, I kind of want one.

If you dig the exploration of missile bases, check out Subciety I stumbled upon the link a while back when researching Urban Exploration. These guys make a habbit of searching out missile bases and other abandoned military facilites. I don't think they have covered any Nike facilites, but have documented a few Titan and Atlas sites.

big kudos to xtrembowhntr for that link with a list of missile sites to check out

Actually...this is incorrect...during and after world war 2 nike bases were put on the west coast to defend against another possible japanese attack...

There was alos a garrsion system setup for times of emergency when the missiles were loaded onto rail cars and kept moving making it harder to find and destroy them. Unfortunately I don't remember if it was for Nike units or the later Altlas and Titan missiles.

All the Nike facilites are no longer carrying Nike missiles, but some have remained in use as training facilities, or in other cases the property was stripped of military equipment and ownership went either to the previous owner of the land or to local government, which I've read sometimes will use the places as training grounds for law enforcement and fire departments.
