I was wondering a couple alerts ago: how did we choose which LCCs would be the SCPs, if anyone knows?

No idea. All I can say is the 351st ACP was the farthest from base, Hotel-1 in the 509th. The 508th SCP I can't recall. I did have a few alerts there; 508th was middle distance. (I know where Bravo-1 is because I've driven by it on Hwy 65, just off I-70. Still there as of a few years ago.) The 50tenth SCP, Oscar-1, was on base (all were closer to base than any of the 508th). This was the ERCS squadron.

Don't know for sure, but it was probably some mix of distance from base, distance from each other, having one in each squadron, and access for the alternate battle staff.

At FE, all the SCPs are "vowels." (A, I, O - and T back in the day, because there's no vowels in Peacekeeper country) but that doesn't seem to be the case anywhere else.

Aye. Minot seems to like to have the SCPs in the 'Middle' (i.e. Charlie, the middle of A-E).

I'm also curious how HVC connectivity was chosen. There's some curious choices I've seen.

508th SCP was Delta, and it is the farthest out for them.

I am not sure if really mattered which was an ACP, PSCP, or SCP. The way LFs were interconnected they might have to chose any LCC. India was the ACP at Minot and it sure wasn't the closest, Oscar was. I think all LCCs were built to the same survivability standards, depth was determined by surrounding soil tests.

Absolutely correct. Any other considerations can't be discussed here.

I can give you a complete diagram and a list of the connectivity at Minot and Warren. It is in the -1 and not classified. This is for Minot is on Wikipedia
