Really nice!!!

Nike Hercules was for a long, long time the main interceptor missile of AMI (Italian Air Force) with an entire Air Brigade dedicated to the use, handling and manutenction of this missile.

Italian Nike sites was placed essentialy in the northern part of the nation, especially closer to the east border (where there was the former Yugoslavia).

Those who can get to the SF Bay Area might find this of interest.

Under the SALT Treaty with the Soviet Union,, all fixed surface to air missile sites had to be dismantled except that two sites could remain, one to protect a designated ICBM site and one to defend the National Capitol. In additon, one site could be preserved in a non-operational status as a musem. This is the US' site.
