Zombie-proof fortress for sale

If you're looking for the perfect place to hole up during the zombie apocalypse, why not consider a former anti-ballistic missile complex? Check out the details at
The Stanley Mickelsen Safeguard Complex (SRMSC) is an Anti-Ballistic Missile complex which was developed to preserve the United States’ second strike capability against Soviet nuclear missile attacks. The property is located in North Dakota and was the United States’ first Anti-Ballistic Nuclear Missile Defense System. The SRMSC became operational in 1975 and was deactivated in 1976. Since then, the property has been in caretaker status.
The MSR site offers approximately 431 acres with various buildings totaling 258,441 square feet and 207.36 line of sight easement acres, more or less. The MSR site is identified in three sections: Vacant Land (approx. 201 acres); Non Tactical Area (approx. 118 acres) and Tactical Area (approx. 111 acres). The Vacant Land was developed for housing but the housing units were removed. The Non Tactical Area offers several improvements including a chapel, community center, administration building, industrial building, pump house, maintenance building, and office building constructed by former telephone service contractor. The Tactical Area offers the Missile Site Radar Building, power plant, universal missile building, warhead handling building and access sentry station. The tactical area also offers 30 Spartan and 16 Sprint missile silos.
Sorry. All the missiles have been removed.
