Putin’s Triple Decker War Room Is Like Something Out Of A James Bond Film

Putin

James Bond writer, Ian Fleming would have loved to write a story about Putin’s brand new, three-tiered, multi billion dollar war room.

It is the perfect location for a secret agent to infiltrate the new command center of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The Washington Post reports:

The fortified National Control Defense Center was Putin’s first stop after officials confirmed that the Russian charter jet crash that claimed 224 lives last month was the result of an act of terror.

On movie-theater-size screens, live broadcasts showed long-range strategic bombers taking off from Russian air bases to fly sorties over Syria. Putin instructed commanders in Syria to “make contact with the French and work with them as allies” as Russia seeks a central role in a proposed anti-terrorist coalition.

But the real star of the show may have been the building itself, which is designed to be a new nerve center for the Russian military that will coordinate military action around the world, including ballistic missile launches and strategic nuclear deployments.Putin

The building is roughly the equivalent of the U.S. National Military Command Center used by the Pentagon, but as one Russian state news agency noted in a breathless headline this week, “Russian Defense Data Center Outperforms US Facility Threefold: Official.”

The center, which is fortified and said to sit on top of a maze of underground tunnels, is on the Frunze Naberezhnaya on the left bank of the Moscow river, a little over two miles from Red Square.Putin

It was finished in 2014 and is part of a massive, decade-long modernization of Russia’s army, which has cost hundreds of billions of dollars, but has also produced noted improvements, from the expertise of Russian troops deployed during the Crimea operation to the recent cruise missile strikes launched from the Caspian Sea.

The new national defense center also includes a helicopter pad that was deployed on the Moscow River late last year and can accommodate Russia’s Mi-8 transport helicopter. In case of a war, it would be the country’s premier communications center, and one Russian commander compared it to the military headquarters of the Soviet Union during World War II.Putin

    I wonder how many US military satellites with secret “Star Wars” technology are permanently fixed on that location. Those chambers better be 30 stories underground. Trust me Putin you do not want the US to know your location during an emergency.

    That will not be the location that will be a dummy location, if a war was gonna start the first things to get targeted would be the satellites, taking them out takes out a whole load of modern technology.
    I wonder if the Russians and Americans have weaponised satellites up there, i think they will have
