30.5.61 renamed 49th Guards Missile Division.
It is obvious that the original plans for the Omsk ICBM complex called for deployment of more than one launch site. In addition to a second launch site which was started and then abandoned, there was also a survey and some construction on the complex main road that indicated an intention to expand to the north-northeast and to the east. There was apparently severe problems of silo construction due to poor drainage and a high water table.
In the end only one site was completed (290th Missile Regiment - and this was delayed to 1965), and the division and the three other regiments would all leave Omsk during 1962.
