Nike Hercules Missile System was deployed to Dichtelbach, Germany (55494) with the ability to attack high-flying supersonic targets armed with a small nuclear warhead or a high explosive conventional warhead in order to destroy entire formations of aircraft with a single missile. The site was functional in mid 1962. Our mission was to launch missiles in 30 minutes or less 24 hours day as part of the Cold War
