The base is located not far from Denver, Colorado. A buyer will have a right to use the territory of 230 square kilometers, missiles shafts, air-raid shelters and several buildings, including the former headquarters of the base. The lot is marked on the auction as 'ultra rare' – only 18 such missile complexes have been built in total.

Sellers note, $100 million were spent to build the base in the 1960s, RBC reports.
