I live in southwest Germany and about 5 minutes from my house is a former American military installation. From what I have heard, they used to store
nuclear missiles in the bunkers during the cold war and even earlier. Now it is a very popular site for illegal paintball matches (some walls are full
of paintball splatters and if you look on the floor there are intact paintballs). I went there recently with a couple of friends to shoot some photos
for a game mod in the works and noticed some changes:
-There have been cages installed in front of the actual bunker doors. They are made of a 5mm thick metal mesh that is also used for building catwalks.
Inside these cages, you can see the controls for a basic alarm system.
-Lots of buildings have been gutted so there are just the bare walls. The only building that hasn't been gutted is the main building with the
(there used to be a big machine here)
-Broken windows have almost all been replaced.
(sorry no good pics)
-In the main building, there are some electronic installation racks similar to server racks. The paint on them seems fairly new and they weren't
there last time. Also, a lot of the electric stuff seems very new.
After performing all kinds of google searches on it, I only got a few relevant results, none of which really answered my questions.
What I was wondering is:
-Does anyone have any detailed information on this facility?
-What are they storing in the bunkers now?
-Why are they renewing the place?
