SUBJECT: IRAQI BALLISTIC MISSILE
WARHEADS CAN BE USED WITH CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARHEADS. THEY
ARE, HOWEVER, ALSO USED WITH HIGH EXPLOSIVE (HE) AND NUCLEAR WARHEADS
WE BELIEVE THAT          EXPLOSIONS ASSOCIATED
WITH SOME IRAQI MISSILE LAUNCHES WERE THE RESULTS OF MISSILE FAILURE
IN THE LATTER PART OF FLIGHT RATHER THAN INTENTIONAL DETONATION OF
WARHEADS. IF, HOWEVER, THESE WERE INTENTIONAL DETONATIONS, THEN THE
ALTITUDES AT WHICH THEY OCCURRED WOULD BE INAPPROPRIATE
FOR PAYLOADS OTHER THAN CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL WARHEADS
