J This complex can be negated When first 25X1 D observed the complex was in a midstage of construction, consisting o 3 aunt sites an an electronic site, all enclosed in a probable security fence. Minor ground scars and some possible temporary support facilities detected may have been the first construction activity. Information for this report was obtained primarily from large-scale 25X1 photography (Figures 2 and 25X1 D 3). Analysis indicates that the complex is in a mid- to late-stage 25X1 D of construction. There is no evidence of construction on the missile-handling facility, and, although no evidence is available to indicate construction of sup- port facilities, some possible temporary support facilities are located adjacent to Launch Site B. These facilities are believed to be composed of tents, however, and probably will be removed when construction activity is concluded. Launch Area Generally speaking, the 3 launch sites, designated A, B, and C (Figures 4, 5, and 6) appear to be in the same stage of construction. Each site has 6 launch positions, designated 1 through 6, and a control revetment. All revetments in the launch area appear to be complete. Presence of snow makes it difficult to determine the exact status of the individual launch positions, but it appears that all positions have received grad- ing, and are ready for equipment installation. No rails, missiles, or missile- related equipment are discernible at this time. The revetment configurations for corresponding launch positions at each of the 3 sites are identical. Positions 1 and 6 at all 3 launch sites are revetted by 2 linear-shaped earth mounds arranged in an L-shaped pattern long linear mound between the rail positions and the control area. The outside arc-shaped revetment has a chord length A single arc-shaped revetment, opening away from the central control, is located at Positions 3 and 4 at all 3 sites, and has a chord length 'he control revet- ments consist of 2 parallel linear earth mounds apart and 110 to 130 feet long. Tracking/Guidance Facility The tracking/guidance facility (Figure 7) is located east of the launch area and consists of 3 completed radar mounds, approximately 20 feet high, and control revetments. Each of the mounds has a small L-shaped equipment re- vetment attached to its base. The revetted area for the control point has 3 sites. The pattern here is also of a drive-through type, with a apart, allowing the circumferential road to pass between them. The revet- ments immediately behind the launch points are long, and revet- ments between the rail positions and the control area are long. Positions 2 and 5 have a revetment design of similar configuration at all 3 25X1 D separate bays faced by a linear revetment 25X1 D D Presence of snow makes detection of cable scars difficult. At this time, however, they do not appear to be established. no electronic equipment had been observed at Mozhays . 25X1 25X1 D 25X1 D 25M1 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 D 25X1 Tor r or Release 2003/06/20: CIA-RDP78TO4759AO06900010012-9 FACILITY ,AAW 25X1 X1 D 2.
