CIA, Cuban Highlights – 09/08/1962

In this report for the Special Group, the CIA said that a “completely reliable source” had added three more SAM sites to their count, making thirteen known SAM sites. That meant that most of the western part of Cuba was protected by SA-2 air defenses. Aerial surveillance had also confirmed that the Soviets were sending MiG-21 aircraft to Cuba.
