Military Update :REVEALED: 15 Minutes Go Inside Russia command center (war room) : how Russia control the world
(Video/Thumbnail Picture just For Ilustration)
Seemingly pulled right from a James Bond movie, we got a glimpse this week of Russia’s new super military nerve center in action, called the National Defense Control Center (NDCC), as Russian heavy bombers made their combat debut in the Syrian conflict. This was also the first time the venerable Tu-95 Bears or the Tu-160 Blackjacks would see combat.
The video above was released by the Russian government and media apparatus showing the center supposedly at work, with a montage of the heavy bomber’s mission being displayed on a massive screen. The video may have also inadvertently shown that Russia has ground artillery units far outside of its forward operating outpost south of the Syrian port city of Latakia, something that the Russian Ministry of Defense still denies.
This immense military command and control headquarters was built incredibly fast, in under two years, out of an existing Ministry of Defense complex located along the Moskva River, just a mile and a half south of the Kremlin. Claimed by the Russian press to be “more powerful than the Pentagon,” this facility houses multiple new command and control assembly areas, all supposedly hardened from external attacks.
Additionally, a labyrinth of underground tunnels, transportation routes and facilities are said to exist below the sprawling compound. Three helicopter pads, one of which is floating, are used to move Russia’s military and political elite to and from the series of buildings. The centerpiece of this updated complex is a truly impressive and giant central atrium built out of glass and steel.
The decision to re-build the facility into the National Defense Command Center was made by Vladimir Putin himself in May of 2013 out of a need to modernize, consolidate and physically expand the size of Russia’s command and control and information fusion capabilities for a new “wartime government.” The complex’s three major auditorium-like control areas include the Control Center of Strategic Nuclear Forces, the Combat Control Center that analyses threats, and the Daily Activities Control Center which is said to deal with procurement and general military activities.
Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu described the facility when it opened:
“The establishment of the center is an important step towards forming a single information space for solving tasks in the interests of the country’s defense,” he continued “it will allow conducting a continuous analysis of the environment and developing means of responding towards changes and rapidly coordinating the activity of federal bodies of the executive power in the defense sphere.”
One of the command and control rooms looks like a more futuristic and much brighter version of the one featured in the Cold War classic film Dr. Strangelove. It features a ringed central seating area and a 180 degree wall of seamless video projection. There is even a theater-like seating area for onlookers. Tablet computers can be seen at every seating station.
During the video, it appears that the room was being used more as a giant briefing room than anything else, with the biggest question being what the heck were all those officers doing at those computer terminals and very clean desks? Maybe during a potential nuclear exchange these officers would all have a role, but it seemed like for the purposes of that day, and for the camera, the facility was being used as a giant movie theater.
