Submarines wrecks, Vladivostok, Russia

Stripped down wrecks of what appear to be Foxtrot-class submarines lie trapped in the ice outside the naval base at Vladivostok.

The Foxtrot-class were diesel-electric powered submarines designed to hunt Nato vessels.

The first Foxtrotclass submarine was commissioned in 1958 and could remain submerged for up to five days with a crew of 78
 

 

Bristol Bloodhound, reclamation yard, Somerset, England

The Bloodhound surface-to-air missile entered service in 1958 and was deployed to protect the UK's Thor missile sites and V-bomber bases from any Soviet bombers that had escaped interception by the RAF's fighters.

The upgraded Mk. II variant remained in service until 1991

 

 

B-52 storage area, Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson, Arizona

Approximately 4,000 aircraft are stored at Davis-Monthan.

Most are eventually scrapped or raided for spares, but two B-52s have been restored to active service to replace those lost in accidents.

The latest took four months to become airworthy after being in storage for over ten years

 

 

Former submarine pen, Vis, Croatia

A small island in the Adriatic Sea, Vis was for a few months during WWII the headquarters of Tito, the former communist president of Yugoslavia and his Partisans.

After the war the island was developed into a major fortified military base, including submarine pens and nuclear bunkers for Tito and his general staff.

The Yugoslav Army withdrew in 1992 and it is now a tourist site

 

 

Magadan, Kolyma Region, Siberia

Their engines removed, the airframes of two Sukhoi Su-15 Flagon interceptors await scrapping. Magadan was in the front line of the Cold War, close to the Pacific Ocean.

The Su-15 was developed as a counter to the US B-52 strategic bomber, and could travel over twice the speed of sound.

It was a Soviet Su-15 aircraft that shot down Korean Air Flight 007 in 1983 after it flew into restricted airspace, killing all on board

 

 

Bechevinka, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia

An aerial view of the housing built for the staff of this former base, known as Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky-54.

Established in 1960, it was an important naval base for much of the Cold War, but was closed in 1996 and is now a remote tourist destination on Russia's Pacific coast

 

 

 

Former R-12U Missile Silo, Tirza, Latvia

Now overrun by nature, underneath the concrete dome once lurked an R-12U nuclear missile capable of reaching targets throughout Europe.

The R-12 was the missile that provoked the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

In the event of a nuclear launch being authorized, the dome would have opened to allow the missile to launch

 

 

Radar, RAF Neatishead, Norfolk, England

Part of the original ROTOR network, RAF Neatishead was a key component of the UK air defence network during the Cold War.

In February 1966 one of the staff deliberately started a fire in the bunker that burned for nine days before it could be extinguished and cost the lives of three civilian firemen.

He was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment

 

 

Former bunker, Valbona, Albania

In the shadow of Albania's Accursed Mountains lie these concrete Cold War bunkers near Valbona.

After Enver Hoxha, the Communist leader of Albania, broke from the Soviet sphere of influence in 1968, many bunkers were built throughout the country against the threat of invasion until his death in 1985

 

 

 

T-62 tank wreck, Bulgaria

Bulgaria's armed forces, like those of the other Warsaw Pact nations, operated Soviet-designed equipment, though usually a generation or two behind the types used by the Soviet forces themselves.

Some weapons were licence-built in Warsaw Pact factories.

Perhaps used for target practice, or as a result of mechanical failure, this T-62 tank has been long abandoned

 

 

Former US Army Black Hills Ordnance Depot, South Dakota

Opened in 1942, the depot was used for the storage and maintenance of various types of ordnance.

Chemical weapons such as mustard gas and sarin were tested on-site. The depot was closed in 1967.

In 2016, it was bought by a developer who has converted some of the 575 bunkers into shelters that allow up to 24 people to survive for one year

 

 

Alternate command post, Long-Range Aviation, Moscow

Long-Range Aviation was the arm of the Soviet Air Force responsible for long-range nuclear bomber strikes, equivalent to the USAF's Strategic Air Command.

As Soviet military command structures were likely to be targeted by a Nato nuclear strike, alternative locations like the one shown were constructed to ensure that military operations such as a Soviet counterstrike could continue unhindered

 

 

Former Soviet submarine repair facility, Balaklava, Crimea

This former Soviet submarine repair base in the Crimea would have been a likely target for a Nato nuclear missile, or certainly been affected by any fallout from an attack on the major Soviet naval base at Sevastapol nearby.

Workers at the base would have been required to wear full protective equipment against nuclear or chemical attack, such as the suits shown, which would have seriously inhibited their ability to work

 

 

Former listening station, Teufelsberg, Germany

The Cold War was a bitter struggle between West and East for information on what the other side was planning.

With such a small window of warning for any nuclear strike, both Nato and the Warsaw Pact spent much time and effort on advanced technology that might give them an advantage should war break out

 

 

 

Redstone Rocket Test Site, Huntsville, Alabama

In 1950 the former V-2 rocket scientists and engineers led by Wernher von Braun were established at what later became the Marshall Space Flight Center.

They developed the Redstone, a short-range ballistic missile that was the first US missile to carry and detonate a live nuclear warhead.

In the foreground are the bunkers used to store the warheads before launch

 

 

Mil Mi-2 helicopters, former airfield, Russia

Over 5,000 Mi-2 helicopters were built in Poland after 1961.

These belonged to a Soviet paramilitary sports society that helped prepare reserves for active service

 

 

 

Abandoned Buran transport, Baikonur, Kazakhstan

In response to the US Space Shuttle programme, the Soviet Union developed the Buran reusable spacecraft.

This giant transporter carried the Buran and its Energia launch rocket to the launchpad.

Only one unmanned orbital flight took place in 1988 before the programme was cancelled in 1993

 

 

Former warhead storage room, Podborsko, Poland

The slots in the floor of this bunker room show where the racking stood for storing the nuclear warheads.

There were four such rooms in the Podborsko bunker, and another two similar sites in Poland.

Exactly what was stored in the bunkers has not been discovered, as the records were removed before the end of the Cold War

 

 

Telecommunications unit, ARK D-0 Bunker, Konjic, Bosnia

Tito ordered the secret construction of the ARK in what is now Bosnia in 1953. Dug out of a mountain, construction continued until 1979.

The entrance was concealed behind what appeared to be an ordinary house.

The occupants had supplies to last up to six months, with communications enabling contact with the outside world

 

 

Alert level notice, Kelvedon Hatch Bunker, Essex, England

The Bikini State system was introduced in 1970 to give an easily-understandable level of alert, similar to the US Defcon system, except the Bikini States were for individual units or establishments rather than applied on a national level.

The system has now been replaced

Inside the abandoned fort off the coast of Wales
Da walesonline.co.uk del 16 luglio 2019

The building of Stack Rock Fort was originally suggested by Thomas Cromwell in 1539

It's the eerie abandoned island fort that lies just off the West Wales coast and dates back to the mid 19th century.

Built between 1850 and 1852 to defend the Royal Naval Dockyard at Pembroke Dock and surrounding areas against a Napoleonic invasion, Stack Rock Fort 's long, winding, labyrinthine corridors once reverberated to the sound of cannon fire and the footfall of the 150 or more soldiers stationed there.

Now long silent - the Grade II-listed building was disarmed in 1929 - it's become overgrown and uninhabitable, home only to a colony of gulls and at the mercy of the relentless crashing of the waves.

 

 

The sense of isolation is unbelievable

Yet it's not without a certain rugged beauty, as these amazing photographs taken by local girl Natalie Burton show. Spookily lit, they illustrate the three-storey structure's crumbling parapets, dangerous unprotected drops and dungeon-esque depths.

Only accessible by boat, the 30-year-old took the shots whilst visiting the fort earlier this month with her paranormal investigating boyfriend Karl Hassall and a small camera crew. The creator of YouTube ghost hunt channel Dark Arts TV, Karl says the circular stronghold had been high up on his bucket list.

"I researched it a lot, rented a boat to get us over and spent the night - it was a really creepy place," says the 29-year-old, who had to climb a metal ladder leading from the craggy outcrop to get inside, the original stone steps have perished through the centuries.

"Only took about 10 minutes to get there from Neyland, but the sense of isolation once you arrived was unbelievable."

 

Voices could be heard talking on the lower floors

And, having swept the place for any other signs of life, Karl and Natalie set about recording.
"There was nobody else there, so the noises we were hearing were really freaky - like voices coming from one of the lower levels, along with some loud bangs and a really low rumbling, metallic sound.

"It sounded like one of the big guns they used to fire on the island being dragged - I still can't explain it."

Originally from Manchester, but now living in Cardigan, Karl says he first become interested in the supernatural when his childhood home had to be exorcised.

"It was me, my mum and my brother and we'd all see things whilst living there, silhouette-like shapes moving about, the gas hob turning on by itself - all kinds of crazy stuff.

 

The place has so much history

"We had to get someone in to bless the place."

And he says he'd love to return to Stack Rock to see if he can get even more evidence of it being haunted.

"Sometimes you need to go back to a site two or three times to really get the measure of it.

"I definitely reckon there's something odd going on there though."

800 yards from the mainland at South Hook, the fort was built at a cost of £96,840.

 

 

Stack Rock has gone on the market several times

A three-gun tower was built in the mid-1850s and the outer fortifications added during the next decade. It was finally finished in 1871.

In its glory days, Stack Rock was armed with 16 guns, each weighing 18 tons.

The fort was first placed on the market in 1932 and sold for £160, later going under the hammer again for £150,000 in 2005.
