During the tense years from 1953 to 1979, the United States Army built and operated a total of 280 Nike missile firing batteries in the United States.

These missile sites were emplaced as the last line of defense against Soviet bombers.

The Nike Missile Site in the San Francisco Bay area (SF-88) was a primary line of defense against foreign aggression targeting the United States within our borders. One of the missiles there was the Nike Hercules solid propellant-fueled surface-to-air missile (SAM).

The Nike-Hercules SAM, designation MIM-14, was used by US and allied armed forces for high and medium-altitude strategic air defense. It could also be configured to be used in surface-to-surface situations.
