                    (1) Defensive_C@al?!L@ e@s. The enemy is prepared to fight.

           and survive  i.n a contaminated environment.     All military
           have been isued chemical protective ensembles consisting of mark,
           gloves, boots and protective c@,@;e,,

                    (2) Other Cavabiliti.es. Flame weapons are found throughout
           enemy units and will provide a significant shock effect in close
           combat situations. Smoke units will be capable of concealing
           operations, personnel and installations as well as providing
           tacti.cal deception.

                    (3) Offensive_CA_p              The enemy is believed to have
           chemical warfare capability consisting of weapons filled with
adly chemical agents of World War I variety;
           Its indigeniOLIS chemical industry has the potential of
           manufacturing a diversity of agents including blood, blister, Ariki
           chocking agents. The enemy has a number of possible suppliers
           collectively covering the complete spectrum of chemical a@l(-rt";
           packaged in warheads compatible with its delivery systems.
           Availability of chemical. agent technology and thEtrela-li-v(@ fears of
           cultivating biological agents, including mycotoxi.rs, hold the
           potential. of the enemy developing both nerve and biological warfare.
           While the enemy has not issued any formal policy statement or., its
           intent to either employ or prohibit the use of chemical w(,@aF)on@..;.
           chemical warfare offers the enemy a means to make rapi.d early
           advances, capturing significant amounts of territory in the i.ri.7Lt:i,,i.i
           phase of conflict. Due to the closed nature of the enemy's co(-,ioty
           and its preclusion of most foreign natiortr. from its territory,
           physical evidence substantiating its offensive chemical warfarc,
           capability has not been obtained.      However, it should not be
           it does not exist.
