SUBJ:  RII-1488, MATING CHEM WARHEADS TO FROGS/SILKWORMS (CENTAF 
RFI# 803)

[   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(5)]

3A.  DIA ASSESSES THAT IZ LIKELY HAS A CHEMICAL WARFARE (CW) 
warhead for the frog, although we have no direct evidence of such 
a warhead.  DIA assesses that IZ is likely to have a CW warhead 
for its SILKWORMS.  CW warheads would be mated to FROGS in a 
manner very similar to the way IZ mates CW warheads to its SCUD 
type missiles.  DIA would expect that personnel performing the 
mating operations of these warheads would be outfitted in 
protective clothing and that there would be some sort of 
decontamination vehicle in the immediate vicinity.

3B:  CW warheads are probably mated to SCUDs at the SCUD 
production facility.  Mating of the CW warheads to FROGs would 
most probably take place at the facility which produces the FROG 
rocket body.  DIA has no evidence that any mating of a SSCUD 
missile CW warhead has been done at Samarra, the facility at which 
the chemical is probably filled into the SCUD CW warhead.  If FROG 
warheads have been filled with CW, it most likely would have been 
done at Samarra.
