Interior of a preserved Titan II nuclear missile launch complex. Looking down the 160' deep silo which would have contained a 'ready to launch' missile. The final Titan nuclear missile was decommissioned in 1987.
Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.

The Titan II ICBM had one W-53 warhead with a 9
megaton
yield, and formed the backbone of America's nuclear forces, launched from
silos
just like this, until 1987.
