Even in peacetime, in some places bordering other countries, some radical incidents will still occur. If not very serious, then there will be no casualties. very radical, it may pose a threat to personal safety of military personnel and military personnel stationed there.
It's just that we're in hinterland and we can't figure out how serious this is. We must always remember that such a life is given with great difficulty, but someone does it for us .
We all know one thing:Only when our country's armed forces become stronger and we have ability to compete with other countries, can we have a certain say in international affairs and be able to speak in world. Hold on tight. If our country is still very weak as before.
Then our international performances will have no effect. In order to make our country stronger, our country has established military strongholds in many places. These places were strictly classified when they were built. If this is leaked, we could face jail.
Moreover, when these places are built, they are usually chosen in very hidden places where you can build very large fortifications, and generally no one will go to chosen place. There is a place in our country's Inner Mongolia that is deep in Daxing'an Mountains.
Because no one will go to this place, this place is called Busuri Northern Military-Cultural Tourist Zone. In beginning, it was a very important military base.
And only after soldiers stationed here left, this place gradually opened up to people. It took a lot of time and money to build, and almost entire mountain was dug up. Empty .
1. Why did you decide to build fortifications in this place
Because construction of this fortification wasin a very special period. At that time, people had nowhere to live a stable life. At that time, management staff realized that there was nowhere to go around it. Keeping a lot of supplies as soon as another fight happens can be very dangerous.
Moreover, it was also a very far-reaching decision of then national administration, we can say that it was fully prepared for onset of war. When it was built, it was secretive and almost only top management knew about the project.
Moreover, in order to keep secrets well, they could only use very crude tools. Slowly, soldiers built base.Almost entire mountain was hollowed out at same time as construction, and this project took a very long time to create, almost thirty years.
In order to build this fortification, government officials invested a lot of money in it, totaling about 2.7 billion. It wasn't until late 1990s that soldiers stationed here left to hand over control to local government, and when they left they took everything inside, leaving only people who built fortifications.
Secondly, largest oil storage facility in our country
It is said that when soldiers were building, they dug a very large fuel storage in this place, and the design here is also very strict , entire storage has a special shape of an inverted U, and both sides of door are made of stones, not only can isolate fire source, but also prevent it from bursting out.
The oil storage tanks at this warehouse are said to hold enough oil for two hundred railcars. And in this place you can also see a real big killer - a tank, and it was a very important technique for entire base at that time, and it was also most advanced technique recognized by whole world.
Third, significance of this place
It is said that house where a certain Marshal lived still stands here, so he gave building here a very famous name, Marshal Building, and now this building is mainly used to show life of a marshal. comes here to to know immortal spirit of his ancestors.
When this place was given to management of local management agency, because it was of great importance, after discussion it was turned into a tourist attraction, and here, students and teachers from nearby schools are also welcome to visit and study.
Coming here, teacher will acquaint students in detail with origin of this place and recognize great spirit of this marshal. Because it is so well preserved, anyone who comes here can visit lives of former people or traces left by command of operations.
