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, (F) storage areas, (F) am- munition storage areas, (G) POL storage areas, (I-I) 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 areas or courses, (S) special. training facilities, (T) unidentified facilities or tracking activity. 25X1 - 1 - Approved For Release 2004/02/11: CIA-RDP78BO456OA00260 TOP SECRET 5X1 ase 2004/0/11-: CTAT 010113-5 NPIC/R-534/64 CHELYABINSK AMMUNITION DEPOT KOPEYSK (55-08N 061-35E) CHELYABINSK, CHELYABINSK OBLAST, USSR URAL MD 25X1A 25X1 C FIGURE 7.

The installation is connected to the Kopeysk Shell Loading Plant (55-07N 061-34E), 2 km south by a spur line and a probable hard- surface road. The installation (Figures 2 and 3) is walled and fenced and covers approximately 275 acres. It contains a total of 41 buildings, of which there are 26 revetted ammunition storage buildings and 15 support buildings. There are no billeting or equipment storage facilities directly con- nected with this installation. The most recent coverage, in 1 reveals that seven new revetted ammuni- tion storage buildings have been constructed in the southeast sector of the installation since the initial coverage in I and that other probable storage buildings are under construc- tion in the southeast and northeast sectors of the installation. DESCRIPTION OF INSTALLATION Railroad Service A single spur serves the installation from the shell loading plant. Rood Service A probable hard-surface, all-weather road connects the installation with the shell loading plant and main routes from Chelyabinsk. Administrative and Troop Housing Area The administrative and billeting facilities for this installation are probably located in the support area of the shell loading plant. 25X1 C@?K1 Ammunition Storage Area Area F (Figure 3) contains seven 125- by 40-foot ammunition storage buildings, eleven 60- by 40-foot ammunition storage buildings, eight ammunition storage buildings of undetermined size, five support buildings inside the compound, and 10 support buildings outside the compound. The area is rail served and probably fenced and walled. Probable construction activity was ob- served within the compound area in I Seven new storage buildings have been added since initial coverage in 25X1 Approved For Release 2004/02/11: CIA-RDP78BO456OA00260001 TOP SECRET 25X1 Approved For Re TOP SECRETI NPIC/R-534/64 FIGURE 2.
