DELIVERY SYSTEMS 
 
SUMMARY: THIS REPORT CONTAINS LIMITED INFORMATION ON 
DEVELOPING A DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR IRAQI CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND 
SUMMARIZES GENERAL DATA ABOUT IRAQI NUCLEAR WEAPONS DELIVERY 
SYSTEMS. 
 
TEXT: 1.                          THE IRAQI NUCLEAR WEAPONS 
PROGRAM (PETROCHEMICAL THREE (PC3)) WAS INVOLVED IN A 
PROJECT TO DEVELOP AN ENGINE CONTROL DEVICE  FOR CHEMICAL 
WARHEAD -EQUIPPED SHORT RANGE BALLISTIC MISSILES (SRBM), 
SUCH AS THE AL-ABBAS AND AL-HUSAYN.  THE PC-3 ELECTRICAL 
GROUP, WHICH- HAD A WELL-EQUIPPED.

COMPUTER LABORATORY, WAS  INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE 
DEVICE WHICH CONTROLLED THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF MISSILE 
ENGINES.  PRIOR TO ITS DEVELOPMENT, IRAQI SRBMS FITTED WITH 
CHEMICAL WARHEADS HAD BEEN FLIGHT TESTED BUT DISPLAYED A 
VERY UNSTABLE FLIGHT PATH 
 
2. DESIGNING THE ENGINE CONTROL DEVICE WAS OF MAJOR 
IMPORTANCE. HUSAYN KAMIL HASAN AL--(MAJID)), THE SON-IN-LAW
