From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
A Missile Silo is an underground vertical cylindrical container built for housing and launching missiles such as the 11-B1 ICBM. These silos are protected by large blast doors on top and are usually connected, either physically or electrically, to a missile launch control center. Kupiga Simu hosted several missile silos.
- The missile silo was originally supposed to be a building that houses a missile launch bay in the game Halo Wars. According to the Halo Wars preview, most UNSC bases have at least one, sometimes more. It is likely that the missile was intended to be a "superweapon" for the UNSC, as such weapons are found in many RTS games. However, it was cut from the final game.
- Launch silos of the 11-B1 ICBM populate the landscape on the Halo 3 map Standoff.
