Pictures of the cruise missile base construction site 1989
At the end of the 1980s, a base for BGM-109G Ground Launched Cruise Missile was built in Woensdrecht as part of the NATO Double-Track decision. Three large shelters were erected for this purpose. Each shelter was designed for 4 transport erector launchers, each carrying 4 missiles. Thus Woensdrecht was intended for a total of 48 missiles. Cruise missiles were not stationed in Woensdrecht, however, as they were meanwhile decommissioned under the INF disarmament treaty.
