This infamous area had been stated in almost all newspapers during the early 1980's due to stationing nuclear armed cruisemissile units in (then) W-Germany. However prior to that several other units have also been stationed at the same location.

- USAF 38th Tactical Missile Wing (operating TM-61 Matador missiles 1957-1962)
- USAr 5th Battalion / 6th Air Def Arty (operating MIM-14 Nike missiles 1962-1972)
Something about the media crazyness in the 1980's: Although these units were also nuclear armed there haven't been any protests against them at all…

Check USAF Wüschheim about the cruismissiles
