Not too far from an anti-aircraft radar site of the East German Army (NVA) in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Western Pomerania) is an abandoned communications bunker.
It was a part of the directional radio network in the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War. Among other things, it was built to ensure that the communication channels of the corresponding anti-aircraft missile regiment were maintained - but also of the regional radio technical battalion and other units.
The bunker was built in the middle of the 1970s at a cost of about 10 Million East German Marks. It was a monolithic construction of about 20x30 meters. Its effective surface area was about 500 square meters. It had two emergency power generators, each with a power of 260 kVA, and was equipped with a fuel tank containing almost 20.000 liters.
The East German Army used the bunker from 1977 until 1990. After the reunification, it was taken over by the now unified German army and used until 2014. Since then, the bunker has been abandoned and raided by copper thieves.
