Sármellék airfield; former Soviet airbase with a temporary nuc weapon storage. Declassified docs revealed an average Soviet nuclear weapons stock between 100 and 180 in Hungary. Mostly freefall bombs.The main storages were at 2 locations: Kumadaras (appx 100) and Kiskunlacháza airbase (appx 80).
Some former Soviet airbases also had small temporary nuc storages: Sármellék, Tököl and Debrecen airfield each 4 shelters.
These used to be empty but could be operational within 24hrs in case of emergency.
