DOI:     JANUARY 1991
IRAQ HAS CHEMICAL WARHEADS FOR SCUD MISSILES, IT HAS NOT
YET MASTERED THE FUZE TECHNOLOGY AND TRIGGER MECHANISM TO
DETONATE THE WARHEAD. IRAQI MISSILE OFFICIALS ARE THEREFORE
LOOKING AT THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING A SCUD MISSILE DELIVER
CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS AND DISPERSE THEM UPON IMPACT WITH
A PATRIOT MISSILE          BELIEVE THAT THE
CHEMICALS COULD BE SPREAD OVER AN AREA OF APPROXIMATELY 60 SQUARE
KILOMETERS.             A SCUD MISSILE ARMED WITH A CHEMICAL
WARHEAD WHICH DETONATES UPON IMPACT WITH THE GROUND WOULD ONLY
SPREAD THE CHEMICALS OVER A FEW SQUARE KILOMETERS.
