    Default Guided Missile Shop Equipment Shelter

    Thanks to the addictive nature of this site, I think I finally identified another one of my shelters.

    I've had it for years (it's also my favorite) and I use it for dry food storage.

    This week I decided to clean the only remaining data plate (now hoping I can restore it). I was coming up short in my search but think I've narrowed it down.

    SHOP EQUIPMENT GM RCS, AN/TSM-104 (XO-1)

    XO-20190510_190911.jpg

    GM = Guided Missile
    RCS = Remote Control System

    My best guess is that it was an equipment shop (or equipment storage) for the HAWK Air Defense Guided Missile System.

    Here's what it looked like when I brought it home. Had stars painted on two sides and a sign that read "Smoking in this area only." The interior shelving is solid enough to handle anything I've loaded onto it. Unlike my other shelters, which are squared at the edges, this one is rounded off.

    I also found remnants of a sticker reading CWC 737 & 734 Routing Tag Area.

    How about a picture of the front? Some of the repair shops had a 36K BTU air con on it, to the left of the door. Some didn't need the air con. They sure made for wearing hearing protection. Not that we did.

    I have a missile support shelter. I’m going to have to dig out the info on it again. It’s still about 50% outfitted as it was originally, minus all the black boxes but one.

    Here's the front as it looked when I got it, came with vent covers.

    I've considered mounting an ecu (I have pallets of nordic 18,000s) but they are way too noisy. I've closed off the large opening, and screened the upper opening, and it remains quite stable temperature wise.

    The shelter was part of the Pershing 1a missile system. None of the wiring remains however, all the canon plug connectors are still there. There was some type of air conditioning inside but it’s long gone. I’m using it for project storage. My favorite part is the launcher. Here some pics:

    One of my missile repair shops had a hole cut in it that was likely for an ecu or ac unit. With summer coming I got the grinder out and fitted a 1973 8000 btu ac unit I had lying around.

    I have to fabricate a frame to secure it in place.

    Found this 2 pieces while cleaning up, any idea of purpose?
