The world’s deepest bunker extends up to 6,500 feet underground and can accommodate up to a million people.
China’s nuclear command bunker is said to be the “deepest in the world” and has been described as a “small city.”
Buried up to 2,000 meters deep, the Joint Operations Command Center is the highest headquarters in China.
This is where President Xi Jinping and his top military decision-making team exercise command of the Chinese military’s combat operations.
The JOCC is headed by Xi, who is also chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC).
However, the exact location of the JOCC is secret SCMP claim it is located in a reinforced underground complex on the western side of Beijing.
The main entrance is in the Western Hills National Forest Park, not far from the headquarters of Chinese leaders near the Forbidden City.
The JOCC was established sometime between 2014 and 2015 and was part of a series of reforms aimed at enabling the Chinese military to conduct unified operations.
It is intended to provide space and supplies for a million people, with sufficient drinking water already in preparation for each of these people.
The JOCC is of course staffed 24 hours a day and would provide protection for the President and his closest aides at the start of nuclear war.
However, very little footage or photographic evidence of the facility has been broadcast – and that’s understandable if it wants to remain a top secret facility.
But in 2017, state broadcaster CCTV broadcast a video showing part of the center’s interior and a broader view of the facility.
It included a two-story main hall with a huge video screen dozens of meters wide that displayed various information and video links.
The room also featured a podium, a wall covered with world maps, and a special throne-like desk for the Commander-in-Chief.
There were two rows of seats on either side of the Commander-in-Chief for other CMC members and senior PLA officers.
Behind it were various employee workstations.
After extensive modernization in recent years, the bunker is also prepared for the launch of world-destructive Armageddon nuclear weapons.
And after the Chinese government conducted geological surveys of the cave system, it became clear that underground water sources would not be affected by nuclear fallout.
Qin Dajun, an associate researcher at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, claimed people could stay in the cave for “years.”
Liu Yong, a nuclear scientist at the University of South China, added: “China has developed cutting-edge technology and equipment for precisely this purpose – among the best in the world.”
“They could be stored underground in the cave for many years without causing any harm.”
