i didnt even realise that the groom security guards employers were public knowledge?, surley they would have been better to be some skunk work/ black
op guys i.e. super-soldier types to protect one of the most secure bases in the world.
While I wouldn't call the camo dudes mall cops, their charter is to watch the watchers and arrest anyone who crosses the line. The deadly force signs
are no longer present at the front gate.
It is assumed you would be visited by a more deadly force if you actually got close to the base. The base is about 13 miles from the front gate
border. That is a decent buffer zone. In reality, the surveillance starts well outside the border. The camo dudes check out people along the ET
Highway. The road sensors are beyond the border to give the dudes time to react. And of course they have cameras, especially the big one on Bald
Any items on the tower structure that are tilted are suspected to be fixed observation cameras. You can spot a few in this latest shot at the bottom
section of the structure. Probably at ladder height.
I don't believe any ground "attack" (not the best choice of word) would be successful. Security would cut you off way before the base. The dudes
are deputized in the Lincoln County Sheriff Department.
Note also those arses from the BBC that crossed the back gate weren't arrested at all. It is a substantially longer drive from the back gate to the
base. I suspect the base didn't want the publicity associated with the arrest media.
Nellis controls the air traffic around the range. There certainly must be a procedure to repel entry by air, though it is tried so rarely that nobody
knows exactly what the base would do. I know a pilot that got close to the west side of the Nellis range and was greeted by an A-10 doing wing rocking
and then coming up on guard (121.5).
