- the alps have enough space inside them to house 140% of the swiss population in the event of an invasion
- all the roads and bridges are layed out in a specific way to be rendered useless with explosives if needed
-tunnels in the alps can be closed off with explosives so the swiss could live out a nuclear conflagration
-the swiss hide their airforce so they can use roads to take off as needed.
I don’t know about the truth of any of this but it is certainly out there on the internet if you want to look. I know what I saw today from the train.
I saw numerous lengths of bitumen that looked like runways in the middle of the alps but with no airport around them. So I checked on google maps and yes they are there. Some are runways and are marked with appropriate numbers. Some are just there. Look for yourself at the google map references here. Then there are the bunkers I saw. I did not get any pictures but they are clear to see in the google images. Take a look. It is quite something to see.
The first one is an airport a home for Air Zermatt
Here is Münster airport
This is a funny one. Notice the strange markings at the end of the - runway.
When you zoom in close to this one you can see the bunkers I noticed as we trained past
My guess is that it is all just common knowledge and people will see this and think me so silly for not knowing. But is nice to notice something yourself with no prior knowledge.
