Space Launch Complex 2 - Vandenberg

Delta Space Launch Complex (SLC-2) is used to launch the Delta vehicle is comprised of two independent launch facilities designated SLC-2E and SLC-2W. These complexes are located approximately 2000 feet apart. The complex contains storage tanks for fuel and oxidizer on opposite sides of the launch pad to provide a safe environment in the event of an accident or spill.

Note: It looks like there is a third complex just a few hundred yards to the NW that is no longer used or considered part of complex 2.

Looks like SLC 2 was built on top of Complex 75 which had seven Thor missile pads.
