The Threat Center showcases opposition Anti Aircraft missiles, and other anti air threats so pilots can gain a better familiarity of what they are up against. Visible here are a Hind Helicopter, an SA-13 mobile missile launcher, six armored personnel carriers, various mobile anti aircraft artillery platforms, three fighter planes, and a number of very large surface to air missiles of all types placed horizontally on the ground.
This image illustrates just how nearly impossible it is to recognize missiles or other large threats on the ground from the resolution provided in Google' satellite imagery.
There is some great footage of the Threat Center in the new IMAX film on video: Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag
