Former Soviet Zeltini Iintermediate Range Ballistic Missile
The IRBM base has been used for storage and launching R-12 (NATO SS-4 Sandal) missiles armed with a single nuclear warhead in the Megaton range. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/58/8k63_na_pu.jpg
In case of WW3 these would have been targeted at W.Germany, Denmark and the Benelux.
The Zeltini complex was operational from 1965 - 1976 and accommodated to launch 2 pairs of silo based missiles at the same time.
It also had a storage capacity for 4 reserve missiles.
