Kapustin Yar is located on the banks of the Volga River, about 75 miles east of Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad) and less than 30 miles east of Kazakhstan.


Latitude: 4830' N. Longitude: 4548' E

The Missile Test Complex is also known as the 4th State Central Range, and was a major missile range used by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
In October 1947, the first rocket, a German V-2 (A-4), was launched from Kapustin Yar.
