комментарий к первой ссылке в этом списке: некий турист Бил Робинсон из Канады сетует, что наши бомбари мало изучены, труднодоступны и мало различимы, особенно на картинках с низким разрешением... во как...
про Балашиху конкретно не смотрел, но этот турист, блин, сравнивает различимость и замаскированность наших точек с импортными в пользу наших. и говорит, что активнее смотреть надо... вроде так... там, вроде, не самый убойный английский - по тексту понятно...
"The nuclear bunkers built for the civilian and military leadership of the United States have been quite well covered in various GE threads. (Some of them have been practically buried by placemarks.) But the nuclear bunkers of Russia/the former Soviet Union have remained largely unmarked, probably because they're both much less well known and much harder to find, especially on the mainly low-resolution imagery available where most of them are located.
I hope to use this thread to pinpoint as many of the Russian nuclear bunkers as possible, and to do that I hope other GE users will actively assist by adding their own placemarks or other information about such sites to the thread. Maybe eventually we can establish threads on the other nuclear weapon states as well."
[про Балашиху он же]
"Balashikha is the Central Command Post of the Russian Air Force. Prior to the 1998 amalgamation of Russia's Air Force (VVS) and Air Defence Force (PVO), the site served as the Central Command Post of the PVO. It now hosts both functions.
The exact location of the Balashikha bunker has not been revealed, but the Balashikha area is within the area covered by high-resolution imagery on GE, so it may be possible to find it. The following comments represent my wild speculations in this regard.
One possible location of the Balashikha bunker is the set of office buildings and other support facilities located in the secure compound shown in the attached placemark. The U.S. Defense Department's 1991 map of secret government subway lines that connect Moscow-area bunkers, which is provided as an overlay in this thread, shows a line headed towards an "Exurban Deep-Underground Command Post" in the direction of Balashikha. This line, when extended further east using the GE measuring tool, passes directly through the suspect compound. Thus, if the 1991 map is accurate, I think this compound can be considered a prime candidate for the entrance to the bunker.
Another possible candidate, however, is the secure compound (about 0.5 km x 0.5 km) located approximately 6.5 km SSE of the first compound. This site does not appear to have sufficient parking to support the day-to-day operations of a major command post, but there is another group of aboveground buildings in a gated area just to the SE that might take care of parking and other aboveground needs. The subway thread contains a second map that shows a line extending towards Balashikha (the 1999 Zaitsev map), and eastward extension of that line takes it directly to this second group of structures.
A third possibility is that both compounds are connected to the bunker, with the actual command post under one of them or somewhere between the two. The entrances to the Sharapovo bunker are as much as 3-4 km apart, and (if the subway stories are true) the Soviet government was willing to tunnel 55 km to that site, so a gap of 6.5 km between entrances may not be as absurd as it first sounds.
Such speculations are complicated by the fact that there are a number of other security-related sites reported to be in the Balashikha area, including the Interior Ministry's Special Operations Division (formerly called the Dzerzhinsky Division) and the KGB/SVR's Academy of Foreign Intelligence. Neither of these sites is likely to account for the abovementioned compounds, however.
The air force bunker, although reported to be in the Balashikha area, is said to be close to the town of Zarya. Unfortunately, although there are many Zaryas in Russia, I have not been able to find one anywhere near Balashikha. If someone can find Zarya, we may have a better basis for judging the actual location of the command post."
Я думал Козельск это там просто ракетная часть некая. Посмотрел я тут не адское сплетение ракетных шахт и дорог.. да там размером с пол ПОдмосковья "ракетная часть". Удивительно!
Кажись повесили куски карты с Истрой новые?
Кто-нить может пояснить, в районе Голицино слева, а также под Истрой внизу некие огромные объекты, с кучей однотипных зданий, вероятно все это дело за забором. И в некоторых местах там есть ЖД
Что это такое? Смотреть строго под Истрой, чуток вправо. Там аж два таких непонытных "склада"...
