Military base

Kangzhuang resides northwest of Beijing in the 51st Base. Garrison and launch sites reside within a larger complex likely serving as a training facility for PLA units. Such a layout suggests that 2nd Artillery Corps units may conduct combined training operations with other PLA units. Kangzhuang conducted initial crew familiarization training on the DF-31 TEL in 1993, four years prior to the first successful test launch.

Look west, along the main road: A smaller compound with red-roofed buildings and a parameter fence. Perhaps another military facility?

Hard to tell. Could be related to the SAM site close by.
