Reddit user Sniper98g and a friend of his found a phone booth sized metal shack in an unused corner of a military base. Being the curious guys that they are they decided to head inside and go exploring. Inside they discovered a relic of the Cold War.

On the surface – This is what they found when they opened up the shack. A ladder?

The bottom of this place had stared to fill with water. He thought about grabbing the flashlight, but figured there were probably a bunch of C.H.U.D.s (Canibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller, the scary creatures from the 1984 horror film of the same name) waiting to grab him under there.

Apparently the site they found was a LCC (launcher control capsule or center), a place where missileers and missile launch officers worked, it”s where they would receive launch orders to fire off land based ICBMs that were located elsewhere. Now it”s nothing but an old rusty bunker, although it would be perfect to seek shelter in during a nuclear apocalypse or a zombie outbreak. Source: Reddit Share this story with your friends below.
