The fifth day we visited one of the most interesting places of our trip - Strategic Missile Forces museum.



Intercontinental ballistic missile R-36M / NATO code SS-18 Satan (MIRV system, carrying up to 10 heads)








This protective cover of the mine launcher missiles SS-24 "Scalpel" weighs 120 tons, it opens completely in 8 seconds





Command Post at a depth of 45 m / Kremlin calls me



My wife just launched SS-24 Scalpel from the nest
(for information: red button is not red, but grey)





Guide here makes the former officers who served here. This is Yuri.

I do not know exactly, but it can be Transporter MAZ-543.
There are web sites http://www.rvsn.com.ua/en/ of the museum in English even though Russian language is much more information.

9th and 10 night we slept in the guest house in Sevastopol, which belonged to the Russian biker Alexej and his girlfriend Anya. That we got in contact in Ordzhonikidze.
They were wonderful people and made us a guide.
