    All 3 sites allow a -10 to +25 meter high and 50-100 meter wide entrance channel.

    All 3 sites allow internal berthing space of 50m height, upto 500m width, and upto 3-4km length.

    Is it really intelligent to speculate about these sort of things that are,by nature, highly classified.

    Why not? Anyone with Google Earth can figure out what I figured out. I am not a specialist, neither am I privy to any classified information.

    Not really. AUTEC channel was in seabed which is just 1-2m below the sea surface. The locations I mentioned have 10m+ deep water in front of them, and not to mention much darker waters.
