Wsa it a natural cave, or was it an excavated tunnel/cavern? This could possibly mean these excavations could have been happening as far back as the 70s!I do not know if this is a proper thread but here we go.
many years back I read in an Iranian newspaper memoirs of some one (may be Tehrani Moghadam himself!!) during Iran_Iraq war the story of how they set up and made operational Iran's first Scud missile left in a cave and given to Shah of Iran by the Soviets, how they fired it and what happened to it....If any one knows how to access this It would be great to publish that in here and even if required I will translate it into English for non farsi speakers.
It is a fascinating story like a 007 novel but real..
