The series is being coordinated, published and disseminated by NPIC. The photographic analysis is being performed by the NPIC Photographic Analysis Group, the CIA Photographic Intelligence Division (NPIC), and the Production Center iPlc (DIA). The photographic analysis for this particular re- port was performed by the NPIC Photographic Analysis Group. In the interest of uniformity, the titles and letter designators for the facilities observed at these installations are identical with those appearing in the project requirement. When a specific facility is not observed both its title and letter designator are omitted in the report. Titles and letter designators for the various facilities are as follows: (A) railroad service, (B) road service, (C) landing strips, (D) administrative and troop housing areas, (E) storage areas, (F) am- munition storage areas, (G) POL storage areas, (H) other buildings and facilities, (J) equipment storage/maintenance areas, (K) athletic fields, (L) small arms firing ranges, (M) driver training areas, (N) tank/ assault gun firing ranges, (P) flat trajectory firing ranges, (Q) artillery emplacements (batteries), (R) infantry or combined arms field train- ing area or courses, (S) special training facilities, (T) unidentified facilities or tracking activity.

The Brest-Baranovichi rail line passes the northern edge of the installation but does not provide rail service. The depot is served by a secondary access road which con- nects with the main all-weather highways ex- tending from Brest to Baranovichi and from Brest to Bobruysk. The Baranovichi Barracks and Maneuver Area (TA-1) is located 7 km north and is connected to the storage area by a sec- ondary road. Other military installations inthe area include Ammunition Storage Area Paul- inovo, 8 km northeast, and the Ammunition Storage Area Lesnaya North, 11 km northeast. This large secured installation enclosed by a 160-foot wide fire break covers approximately 350 acres and contains a double secured inner area. The inner area contains 25 storage buildings and an open probable vehicle park lo- cated at the south end. The outer area contains one administration and 11 support buildings. The depot was covered by raphy in= dating from I ~hotog- missions hotography revealed heavy usage but in level of usage during the time of photography could not be determined. Significant changes since = include the re- moval of five storage buildings, the addition of four other storage buildings, and the addition of eight support buildings. this depot is possibly no longer associated with the Long Range Air Force. The direct road connections with the Baranovichi Barracks and Maneuver Area, Lesnaya (TA-1) indicate probable association with that Ground Forces installation. 25X1 25E3P1 25X211 25X1 25X1 D DESCRIPTION OF INSTALLATION The storage area is not directly rail served. Two spur lines off the Brest- Baranovichi double- track rail line are abandoned. A small rail yard in Lesnaya may possibly provide rail service for the storage area. The installation is served by a secondary road which extends through Lesnaya to the Baranovichi-Lesnaya Training Area. General Storage Area Area E (Figure 3) contains 25 storage build- ings. Five large (approximately 150- x65-foot) storage buildings have been removed since= age buildings and two small storage buildings have since been added. Other Buildings One administration and 11 support buildings Area H, Figure 3) are located in the outer se- cured area north of the storage buildings. Eight of these buildings have been constructed since Equipment Storage/Maintenance Areas A probable equipment/vehicle open storage area (Area J, Figure 3) is located at the south end of the inner secured area.
