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 IPIc (DIA). The photographic,analysis for_this particular re- port was performed by the NPIg Photographic Analysis Group.

The area is served by a spur from The rail line and has all-weather road connec- tions to Pruzhany. The Pruzhany Army Bar- racks Slobodka (AL-1) is located 7 km north of this area. The installation (Figures 2 and 3) covers 75 acres and- contains 24 -semiburied vertical POL tanks; seven semiburied probable POL tanks with rectangular covers, of which five appear to be interconnected by pipes; one ad- 25X1 NP IC /R-503/64 ministration building; six support buildings; possibly for storage of This installation five storage buildings; and a large open area, oil drums. 25X1 25X1 25X1 was covered by I I Ohotography and missions Corn- parative analyst extensive changes, which in- as observed on coverage, clude the addition POL tanks, seven of 14 semiburied vertical semiburied probable POL tanks with rectangular covers, and one admin- istration building,-and the removal-of numerous horizontal POL tanks which were visible on coverage. DESCRIPTION OF INSTALLATION Railroad Service'," A spur from the Brest-Ivantsevichi rail line serves this area. Road Service All-weather roads provide access to Pruzhany. G?neral Storage Area Area E contains five storage buildings and one administration building. One of the storage buildings and the administration building have 25X1 - been added since I [overage, and one storage building under construction in has been completed. POL Storag? Areas Area GI contains 24 vertical, semiburied tanks, 75 feet in diameter, 14 of which have 5X1 been added since Area G2 contains seven probable semi- buried POL tanks with rectangular covers, five of which appear to be interconnected by pipes. These tanks were first observed on coverage. Four of the covers are 120 by 120 feet, one is 160 by 135 feet, one is 160 by 105 feet, and one is 150 by 60 feet. Between GI and G2 is an open area, pos- sibly for storage of oil drums. Numerous horizontal POL tanks visible on coverage were not observed on subsequent coverage. Other Buildings Six support buildings are scattered through- out the installation. - 3 - TOP SECRET 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 TOP SECRET NPIC 'R-503/64 FIGURE 2.
