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 1Plc (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, (N1) 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-Ivantsevichi rail line passes 7 km south. There are two SAM sites (Pruzhany SAM Sites B10-2 and 3) located in the vicinity of the in- stallation. A direct road connection indicates that troops are associated with them and are probably billeted in this barracks area. This )installation (Figures 2 and 3), in- cluding a barracks area (AL-1) and an ad- jacent training facility (TA-1), covers 830 acres and contains four administration build- ings, 12 barracks, 23 support buildings, 11 stor- age buildings, 16 probable dependents quarters, eight vehicle maintenance buildings, and six equipment storage buildings. This installa- tion also contains three firing ranges, an ob- stacle course, a wheeled-vehicle driver-train- ing course, a probable rail-to-road transfer point, an athletic field, a parade ground, and an infantry field training area. This area is covered by TALENT photography and EYHOLE missions C ou cover on TALENT coverage precludes obser- vation of all areas.

A spur with a probable rail-to- road transfer point from the rail line, first observed oni coverage, is imme- diately southeast of the installation and prob- ably serves the barracks area and the SAM sites. Road Service A probable all-weather road connects this installation to Pruzhany and to the Kobrin- Ivantsevichi highway. Administrative and Troop Housing Areas Area D1 (Figure 3) contains three admin- istration buildings, eight barracks, and two support buildings. Area D2 contains four barracks and. four support buildings. Foliage precludes further analysis in this area. Track activity throughout the installation indicates probable occupany of all buildings. The level of track activity has remained about the same. General Storage Area Area -E contains seven storage buildings and five support buildin s. Three storage buildings were removed Ammunition Storage Area Area F, a possible ammunition storage area, is a small fenced area immediately west of the firing ranges; however, no buildings are discernible. Other Buildings Area H1 contains 16 probable dependents quarters first observed on 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1. 25X1 26X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 TOP SECRET / I I TOP SECRET 25X1 ? 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 Area H2 contains one administration build- ing, four storage buildings, and seven support buildings. The area was obscured by clouds and cloud shadow Track activity re- mained constant on KEYHOLE coverage. Equipment Storage/Maintenance Areas Area J 1 contains two 150- by 30-foot ve- hicle maintenance buildings; six equipment stor- age buildings, three measuring 70 by 30 feet, two 50 by 40 feet, and one 50 by 30 feet; and three support buildings. Area J2 contains three 150- by 30-foot vehicle maintenance buildings and one support building. Four vehicle maintenance buildings were visible on Icovers e, but one was removed Area J3 contains three vehicle maintenance buildings--measuring 260 by 45 feet, 260 by 30 feet, and 150 by 30 feet--and one support building. Four vehicle maintenance buildings were visible on F___~overage, but one was removed 1- -1 All of the vehicle maintenance buildings are prob- ably for heavy repair work. Athletic Fields K 1 is an athletic field and K2 is a pa- rade ground. Small Arms Firing Ranges Area L1 is a 600- by 150-foot small arms firing range with heavy track activity. Area L2 contains two 600- bv_ 75-foot small arms firing ranges. Track activity indicates continued use of both ranges. Driver Training Areas Area M is an irregular shaped wheeled- vehicle driver-training course first observed figure-8 course (tbcated in Area was first observed and one figure-8 course (located in Area The level of track activity has re- mained constant. Infantry or Combined Arms Field Training Area Area R is an infantry field training area containing numerous trench systems and fox holes. Special Training Facilities Area S is a probable obstacle course for ground troops. A series of walls and other obstacles are visible. Unidentified Facilities The areas marked T are excavations first observed onE overage. One km east o the installation are two scarred areas (not. shown on sketch) connected by multiple road loops in a heavily wooded coverage. These scars are connected by a good road to the driver training area. 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 TOP SECRET 25X1 0 TOP SECR~ 0 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 TOP SECRET 25X1 -?-- Hamad, emjle Inc, Rna1 Fence Area CLI Ism - ci bca,al,on TOP SECRET 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 TOP SECRET 25X1 NPIC/R-508/64 25X1 25X1 25X1 US Air Target Chart, Series 200, Sheet 0168-22HL, 3d ed, Feb 63 (SECRET) Army.
