Area 60 - Military Test Centre (Closed)

 Share

Recommended Posts

OOC: Continued from here: Link

In the south of Curristan, lay a secret construction. An area 40 square miles had been sealed off and turned into a top secret centre for military equipment and Black Projects. Most of it had been put underground where the Research and Development (R&D) and contsruction took place. Some testing was underground but most of the testing would take place on the surface.

Compound breakdown:

0: Surface testing and perimeter

1- 20: Testing Laboratories

21- 40: Project Construction Workshops

41 - 60: Research and Development (R&D)

61 - 80: Scientist and Technician Quarters

Curristan's military projects would be developed and tested here. The ultimate goal would be the aquiring of nuclear weapons, but that would be a long way off yet.

However, a lot of researching would have been completed before that goal is accomplished.

(Projects restarted under orders from Curristan Government)

Missile Silo in Northern Curristan:

The Minuteman III ICBM carrying the test Tabum Warhead left the silo and began the journey south. Curristan Defence systems were ordered to not engage the missile. The missile was on a trajectory that passed through the center of Curristan territory, away from international borders.

In the Area 60 testing area on ground level, 30 CRF prisoners selected for this test sat in a bus. They were the only ones in Area 60 that did not know why they were here. All they were told was that they were being kept here for a test.

30 minutes into the test, at 10,000 feet above Area 60, the warhead seperated from the rest of the missile and fell towards the ground in an arc. At 5000 feet, the warhead exploded and the Tabum agent rained down on the bus carrying the CRF prisoners.

Immediately the CRF prisoners began showing signs of exposure to the chemical agent. Some began to convulse as the agent worked its way through their nervous system. Others began to sweat uncontrolably and collapse. Some laid still unconcious. Within 2 minutes, all 30 prisoners were still.

Scientists wearing bio hazard suits went in and confirmed that the prisoners were dead. With the experiments over, the bus which had been rigged with explosives before the tests, was blown up.

The second phase would begin soon.

Project #000013 - M109 155mm Self Propelled Gun upgrade

All M109A2s in service upgraded to M109A4s. Improved with Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical / Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (NBC/RAM) improvements, including air purifiers, heaters, and Mission Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) gear.

The traversing mechanism's clutch is hydraulic, as compared to the electric mechanism on previous M109s, and features a manual override in the event of an electrical failure. The A4 also adds an additional hydraulic filter, for a total of two. Also included, is an improvement to the engine starting equipment, greatly improving the ability to start in an emergency.

Upgrade Complete.
