Subject: HIGH ALTITUDE EXPLOSIONS

Not Finally Evaluated Intelligence

REFORMATTED TO ELIMINATE INFORMATION THAT DOES NOT PERTAIN

TO GULF WAR ILLNESS ISSUES OR THAT IS CLASSIFIED. A COPY OF

THIS REDACTED DOCUMENT, IN ORIGINAL FORMAT, IS AVAILABLE ON

REQUEST.







JAN 91    DIRECTOR 454996







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
