The Naval Ammunition Depot located in Hastings, Nebraska was the largest U.S. ammunition plant providing 40% of WWII's ammunition.

One of the bunkers there exploded during the war.

Blackwolfe, that's why Remington made their military ammo plant in Bridgeport CT in the shape of many 'H's' joined in the middle. Like HHHHHHHH except for the spaces between the letters. In the event of an explosion, only one section would be destroyed. Plant eventually sold to GE and converted to office spaces. Now demolished, the land is being converted to a school. In that part of Bridgeport, it will be destroyed soon.

It's been a long time since I've been past the old ammo dump in Hastings, but memory says that the complexes stretched for a few miles along the highway and the bunkers were laid out as such with one wall of each earth sheltered bunker weaker than the others for directional failure.

I had relatives that lived in the greater area at the time and some more distant. I believe the explosion could be heard over 100 miles away. Parts of the facility is have become an industrial park.
