Zonne- me thinks you or whoever told you that must be smoking something funny.

Where are they coming from?? Sure they are stored somewhere in the UK - just for us Yanks to use on the B52s if we happen to deploy the B52s to Fairford!

There was rumors in the early 70's they had nukes (certainly not cruise missles) stored at RAF Schulthorpe - but that had never been verified.

How much of an escort (armed and probably armoured) do you think would be required to move a cruise missle on a truck thru the English countryside?

Nice rumor - but I am LMFO at it!
:p :p

well british aerospace (dont know if they exist ne more) make and store the missiles, they get taken from there to RAF fairford, get put on B-52s, they fly off 4 hours later iraq is a fire town.

it is true that there are convoys of police and lorrys carrying missiles. and may well have passed through your town:cool:

These are useless until the guidance systems and warheads are in place. These are not usually stored at the same location as the actual missile body. The guidance systems are a small collection of “pcb plug-in” modules, the warhead usually a 1000lb bomb but not necessarily as they have been used for many different things. If you see flat bed trucks which normally carry four or five of these there will be no warhead or guidance systems in place as these are only added and armed just before loading. No security is usually used in the transportation of these objects in peacetime.
