The Proving Grounds are located in western Takistan, close to Nasdara. It is the place of the Takistani nuclear test in 1999.
Unlike major part of Takistan, the Proving Grounds are located in more temperate region with more vegetation. It is the location of former OKB-754 facility where the first Takistani nuclear weapon was produced and tested. The test left a crater and destroyed significant part of vegetation, while the subsequent release of radiation forced out all local population.
