    Post Cold War Mapping (Titan I Missile Base)

    Growing up a child of the 80s I knew what MAD meant before I knew what STD meant. So, I have always been a bit fascinated by the Cold War era. Once I wrap up my current D&D4e campaign (probably sometime late fall to mid winter) I’m considering running a post-WWIII campaign, and part of that process is getting some location maps. The campaign I’m hoping to run is something of an alternate history, what-if the cold war didn’t end type thing, so one of the locations I’ll absolutely need is one or more missile bases. The old Titan I missile bases are the largest and seem to offer the most exploration opportunity for the players.

    The following pictures are from declassified government documents and thus are not copyrighted. However, I did locate them at siloworld.com so, I’ll give the webmaster there a big shout out.

    If I can find the time I’d like to put together a gaming suitable set of maps for a Titan I missile base, but if not, the diagrams are pretty good, so I thought I’d share them with you.

    Then you may like these as well... (Normally when you see missile silos in the movies the missile shoots up out of the opened silo, but the original Titan missiles needed to be elevated all the way out of the missile base before they could be launched. That would have been part of the reason they were retired from service so quickly, I suspect.)

    Love these cut-aways as well. Good luck putting something together and I'll look forward to the maps.

    What a great resource! These could come in handy for a Gamma World/Mutant Future or even a Twilight 2000 game.
    Cheers,

    Since these have been so popular so far, here are some more. The quality of the images drops somewhat, but still utterly fascinating to me.
