US Position: There are two launch areas located about 25nm west of Havana,
each of four pads, under construction, which might be ready for operational
use by early December 1962.
Comment If these are IRBM they will have a range of 2200 nm, extending from
Hudson Bay through California to Lima, and be capable of striking a selection
of targets in the USA. We are satisfied that these two launch areas represent
surface to surface missile sites capable of launching missiles with nuclear
warheads. On the basis of the evidence available we cannot positively identify
the sites as being associated with the 2200nm missile.
