Recently, Iran has opened up images of Iranian missile forces assembling missiles in underground bunkers to launch attacks on U.S. forces. The video begins with a quick display of a long tunnel deep underground, flanked by accessories and ballistic missiles full of missile systems. After the missile assembly is completed, slowly lift up and point to the sky.
The vault opens a top steel cover plate from which the missile is fired. At least 15 years ago, iran began the construction of underground missile bases, which are now believed to have three major underground missile bases. Taking advantage of Iran's mountainous features, Iran chooses favorable terrain in the mountains to start building underground bases, which are tunnel-type bases and often have very long underground passages.
Moreover, these underground bases, the main parts, are tens of meters thick rock formations, not afraid of bombing and targeted strikes at all. There are relatively weak spots only at the missile launch ports, but they cannot be detected. Normally, these launch windows, with a thickened and camouflaged cover at the top, can fly out of the launch window when the cover is opened and the missile ignites.
This is the only weak link in Iran's huge missile hole, and on January 9, the U.S. Navy's EP-3E reconnaissance aircraft, numbered 156517, took off from Bahrain's air base. One U.S. military E-3C AWACS from the United Arab Emirates, numbered 79-0002, and one U.S. military E-3TF AWACS from Turkey, numbered LX-N90456, are conducting a high-density reconnaissance of Iran.
Probably looking for the exact location of the Iranian missile's underground base. In May 2017, officials of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps revealed that Iran has built a third underground ballistic missile base that integrates multiple capabilities such as production, storage, and launch.
Moreover, Iran also has 14 underground missile bunkers, all of which are missile reserve bases that do not have the capability to launch. These caverns, all constructed by standard tunnel underground fortifications, are 27 to 500 metres deep and have very long underground passageways that allow vehicles to move forward.
Now, the Iranian underground missile base that has been discovered is the Khorramabad missile base, where there are seven underground missile caverns near the base, providing reserve missiles for the base. And the eight underground bases, all with underground tunnels linked to each other.
With this underground launch, Iran could be more efficient at using short-range ballistic missiles with a range of less than 1,000 kilometers to hit major cities in neighboring countries. To launch a missile with a range of more than 1,000 km, it would still need to be launched on the ground. Meteor series intermediate-range ballistic missiles to combat Israel.
Iran has more than a kilometer in length and has several very hidden exits, filling the bunker with fuel at the time of launch. And then from a hidden exit, and then missile launch.
U.S. forces in the Middle East now do not have a large drilling platform and ammunition, so there is no strength to hit Iran's three underground missile bases. If U.S. forces begin deploying B-2 stealth bombers, that means the U.S. has found the launch port of Iran's underground missile base. The bomber can drill 14-tonne ground bombs into the target with meter precision and break through the top layer of a 60-metre-thick bunker.
Another concern is that, after the iranian missile attack on the u. s.military base, the first came to the scene was the kurdish army, which established a defense within 80 km.
