Такой вот вопросец. Собственно вроде бы как было на середину 62го - 26 ракет Р-16.

Но с ПУ не совсем понятно:
"The launch on October 28, 1961, concluded the flight tests of the R-16 missile. On October 20, 1961, the surface-based ICBM complex with R-16 missile was formally accepted into armaments. (51)
On November 1, 1961, the first "battle stations" armed with R-16 ICBMs were declared operational in Tyuratam, near the towns of Nizhniy Tagil and Yuriya.
In the meantime in 1961, in Tyuratam, the construction of the silo complex started at Site 60 on the east flank of NIIP-5. Also designated as Object 310, the facility would include three launch silos. A. Nitochkin from Central Design Institute of the Ministry of Defense, also known as TsPI-31, led the construction effort.
The testing of the R-16U version of the missile designed for silo launchers started in January 1962 from ground-based pads.
On June 13, 1962, the R-16U blasted off from the silo facility for the first time. The missile left the silo successfully by a steering engine failed in flight. The problems developed in several consecutive flights but had been solved eventually.
On February 5, 1963, the first unit armed with R-16U was declared operational. On march 30, 1963, three silos with R-16U missiles were put in operational service in Plesetsk. On October 8, 1963, during "Groza" (Thunder) exercise, for the first time, the R-16U was launched from the operational silo in Plesetsk."
Как я понял, боевых подразделений, вооруженных Р-16У, летом-осенью 62го не было. Но были сами шахты. С наземными ПУ ситуация совершенно не понятная - были тестовые стартовые комплексы, но сколько было специализированных ПУ ? Какую конструкцию они имели ? Совершенно открытую или такие же "гробы" как у американцев ?
