Zastrcený bunkr nad Náchodem mel sloužit pri prípadném napadení Ceskoslovenska jadernými zbranemi. Až do 90. let o nem témer nikdo nevedel. Dokonce i rada místních se domnívala, že "ten objekt v lese" je jen nejaká vodárna. N-71 "V sedle", zvaný Kahan III, byl jedním z nejprísneji utajovaných bunkru u nás.
