Caption: Decommissioning nuclear missile. Technician activates a crane to lift the warhead away from the body of the missile. This is a French S3D intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM). The TN 61 warhead could produce an explosive force of one megatonne, equivalent to the explosion of one million tonnes of TNT. Photographed during the decommissioning of the Plateau d'Albion base, which concluded in 1998.
