Last of Missile Silos Removed

Posted: Updated:
The last of the deactivated ballistic missile silos have been eliminated at Malmstrom Air Force Base.

This results from a U.S. Nuclear Arms-Reduction Treaty with Russia to eliminate 103 deactivated intercontinental ballistic missile silos of which 50 are located in Malmstrom.

The silos that were located just north of Great Falls, were under the supervision of the 564th Missile Squadron, were deactivated in 2008.     

As a part of an arms reduction treat with the Russians, the U.S. were required to eliminate a total of 103 ICBM silos by February 2018. The demolition of fifty silos located at Malmstrom were close to half the treaty's requirements.

The last silo to be eliminated was located about 25 miles west of Conrad.
