SUMMARY:          AN IRAQI SU-22 JET AIRCRAFT WITH A POSSIBLE
CHEMICAL/BIOLOGICAL (C/B) SPRAY TANK WAS SEEN AT TALLIL AIR FORCE
BASE, IRAQ - ENCLOSURES.
X-
TEXT:          A PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN DURING THE MULTINATIONAL
INVASION OF IRAQ, AT AN AIRBASE APPROXIMATELY 10 KILOMETERS
SOUTHWEST OF AN NASIRYAH, REVEALS A POSSIBLE CHEMICAL/BIOLOGICAL
SPRAY TANK ON THE INBOARD PORT SIDE PYLON OF A PROBABLE SU-22
AIRCRAFT.  THE JET AIRCRAFT BEARS AN IRAQI FLAG AND APPEARS TO
HAVE BEEN EITHER HIT OR BLOWN IN-PLACE BY COALITION
GUNFIRE/BOMBS.  ENLARGEMENTS OF THE ORIGINAL PICTURE REVEAL A
POSSIBLE "AIR-SCOOP" ON THE TOP-FRONT OF THE TANK' THUS THE
HYPOTHESIS OF A POSSIBLE C/B SPRAY TANK.  THIS TANK ALSO HAS AN
ACCESS PANEL ON ITS PORT SIDE.  ADDITIONALLY DEPICTED ARE AN
OUTBOARD FUEL TANK, A JACK HOLDING UP THE PORT SIDE WING, AND A
BLOWN VEHICLE TO THE LEFT OF THE AIRCRAFT.
X-
COMMENTS:  (U)
1.          ((FIELD COMMENT) - THE AIRBASE MENTIONED IS PROBABLY
THE TALLIL AIR FORCE BASE AT GEOCOORD//4608E/3096N//.  THE RAM-AIR
INTAKE OR SCOOP ON THE TOP-FRONT OF THE INBOARD PORT TANK WOULD BE
CONSISTENT WITH THE US' TMU 28/B OR A/BY5Y3 BULK LIQUID AGENT
TANK.  THE PRESENCE OF THE HINGED ACCESS PANEL IS NOT CONSISTENT
WITH THIS TYPE OF TANK DUE TO LEAKAGE PROBLEMS, HOWEVER, IS
CONSISTENT WITH THE US' AERO-2A OR A/B45Y-2 TYPE OF DRY-AGENT
SPRAY TANK.  THE JACK HOLDING UP THE PORT WING MIGHT INDICATE THAT
THE IRAQIS WERE TRYING TO REMOVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT UNDER THE
WING.  THE BLOWN-UP VEHICLE TO THE LEFT OF THE AIRCRAFT DOES NOT
RESEMBLE A STANDARD ARS-12/14 DECONTAMINATION TRUCK; HOWEVER, DOES
CONTAIN HOSES AND TUBING WHICH COULD INDICATE A NON-STANDARD DECON
VEHICLE FOR C/B MUNITIONS).
2.          ((FIELD COMMENT) - ADDITIONAL INFORMATION MAY BE
AVAILABLE - REQUEST EVALUATION AS TO WHETHER THIS ITEM SHOULD BE
PURSUED).
