"According to Business Insider, Google Maps has opened up a can of worms with 3D renderings of the National Security Bureau, the Military Intelligence Bureau and what was, up until now, a secret Patriot missile base, as well as additional defence infrastructure.

Not only have the locations and structures been made visible, but you can even make out the types of launchers and models of the missiles at the sites."

Why would you hide missiles? 99% of their 'defense' value is in your enemies knowing you have them.

OK, sure, you don't want your enemies to know exactly where they are...but still.

Probably another one of those unintended quirks in Google's Chinese version.

It's quite normal. I think they can request to have them pixellated or at lower resolution, but usually military facilities are shown quite clearly. You can get some interesting closeups of naval bases and military airbases. For instance, you can get a nice closeup of Groom Lake, Nevada (see here https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@37.235351,-115.7975088,5592m/data=!3m1!1e3  ). Of course, you won'[t see anything particularly hush-hush, though there are a couple of 'Janet' 737s on the ramp.
