Note: the old nuclear bomb strorage was especially built to meet the specs of SAC's 5th Munitions Maintenance Sqn which was detached to the 3906th Combat Support Group operating the B-47 reflex bomber sqns at Sidi Slimane AB 1952-1963. Later declassified files made clear that 10 nuclear MK6 (8-140 kilotons yield) and 20 MK36 (9-10 megatons yield) bombs were stored here.A B-47 could carry 1 MK6; A B-52 could carry 2 of them; the MK36s (4x) could only be carried by B-52s
