IRAQIS CONDUCTED A TEST FIRING OF 3 AL HUSSEIN 12M EXTENDED
SCUD BALLISTIC MISSILES, WITH MODIFIED WARHEADS. THE FIRINGS
WERE CONDUCTED FROM AL AMARAH (31-49N, 047-05E) TO AN IMPACT
AREA NEAR H-2 AIRFIELD (33-22N, 040-36E), A DISTANCE OF ABOUT
600 KM.
A. WE HAVE AS YET NO DETAIL ON THE MODIFIED WARHEADS BUT
SINCE THE SINGLE HIGH EXPLOSIVE HEAD AND THE DUAL CHEMICAL
WARFARE HEAD HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY TESTED WE WOULD SPECULATE
THAT SOME SORT OF MULTIPLE WARHEAD WAS INVOLVED.
