SECONDARY: Major military, industrial, governmental, and transportation centers. Also included are sea ports, locks and dams. These may be hit at once by the first missiles or struck by the bombers that will follow.

TERTIARY: These are population and industrial centers that probably wouldn't be hit in the first strikes but would be high on the lists for later destruction to further cripple our ability to fight a prolonged war and/or recover and function as a nation. Threats against these targets could also be used following the initial attacks to force our leader- ship to capitulate. In the event of a dangerous rise in tensions, military forces would be widely dispersed to make them less vulnerable to a first strike. This would make some areas more likely to be hit. Heavy bombers and strato- tankers would be scattered to any civilian or military runway long enough for them to operate from. A B-52 needs about 7000 feet to take off fully loaded. An FB-111 needs about 5500 feet (the exact figures are classified). The B1 "Spirit" Stealth Bomber needs less runway, but more supporting infrastructure. This would make any runway that length a potential primary target.

Also, the fact that our war planners, and the Strategic Air Command, planned on continuing war efforts with nuke bombers once the first mushroom clouds were rising, meant that any long stretch of interstate highway, county highways, or other straight and clear hard surfaces could be used for landing, refueling, and reloading more warheads on these aircraft after the first loads were dropped. Therefore, even OLD bases that have been shut down in recent years because of congressional decisions and decreased funding, would still be targets simply because they would be the first refuel/rearm points to be used. The point is that a knowledge of your particular area and it's potential usefulness in a war situation is critical to your individual planning.
