Texas Tower
Explanation:
The Texas Towers were a set of off-shore radar facilities used by the United States Air Force during the Cold War that were modeled on the offshore oil drilling platforms first employed off the Texas coast. Mit anderen Worten, es handelt sich um eine ganz spezielle Konstruktion die diesen Namen bekommen hat, und damit würde ich den Namen lassen.

This platform, along with two other Texas Towers – named as such because of their resemblance to ocean oil-drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico – was created for the U.S. Air Force in the 1950s, around the time of the Cold War, to operate as radar sites meant to guard the country against possible attacks by the Soviets. Each tower was staffed by 70 men, both USAF and civilian.
