I don't know about this....does it come with the creepy man in the fifth picture? Because I think that would be a negative selling point.

Was wondering what the Lox/RP1 tanking looked like in the base design.  Seems like very little info is out there.

How about this:  What kinda shape would a Lox tank be in if exposed to only standing water for 50 years?

Would it still be there, or would it have been stripped out when the silo was demilitarized. I suspect the latter, LOX tank not included.

it would depend on the site location, and the contractors hired.   Was reading some of the Silo sites, and in one type they took the fuel tank and filled it with sand.
