STC SRBM COB
The Standard Template Construction Short Range Ballistic Missile Concealed Operations Base is far less complicated than it's name sounds. The installation is built into an abandoned building, the side of a mountain, the rusting hulk of a ship, or anywhere that the 800 square foot structure can be put. It houses a single short range ballistic missile, and has an operating staff of 6: a commander, two communications officers, and three enlisted who cover everything from basic duty to security. The COB also has communications functions, and has access to secure line of communication. Most of the time it is a listening post with heavy strike capability.
These small COBs were built in many places around the world. They also experimented with different weapons, changing the SRBM for interceptor missile batteries, anti-aircraft missiles, and cruise missiles. These proved effective generally once, and then their location was revealed. With their missile expended and cover blown, most COBs would be deliberately destroyed by their staff who would then try to escape into native territory rather than attempt to 'Alamo' the COB.
During the end of the Resource Wars, a fair number of these COBs were abandoned by their staff, who feared being left behind in a foreign hostile country more than they feared their weapons falling into enemy hands. A few were destroyed by the deserters, but far too many were left intact. During the nameless disjointed holocaust that ended the Resource Wars, captured COBs and their weapons were used to horrifying effect. Short range nukes were used to settle local disputes, and cities were blasted down to the bedrock. Others were doused in nerve gas. Millions died, and the damage and suffering caused gave birth to the wastelands, and the Wastelanders.
Amerikka Command still makes use of this type of COB as a one shot deterrent to Federation aerospace assets. While the DMZ treaty with the Pacific Rim Coalition limits the tonnage of war material either side can deploy, the Command's pop-up pocket nuke anti-ship missiles provide a much more stringent limit. To the Command, the lose of a COB is inconsequential to the spectacle of either destroying a Federation warship, or blowing a massive hole in one.
