Abstract:

The techniques of employing ABC agents at sea, especially those concerning some details, have already passed into a stage of improvement in which only a few technological deficiencies need to be corrected. These deficiencies are mainly connected with the guidance system there is also a prevailing tendency towards developing tactical atomic weapons and towards adapting existing ship armament for the use of nuclear charges. The latter development is still in the experimental stage. It is apparent that the development of techniques and uses of ABC agents is moving along the line of finding means, and improving those already existing, for delivering them over great distances. It is also evident, although not much has been said about it, that measures are being taken for developing a state of readiness for protection against the effects of ABC agents. It should be kept in mind also that the use of such agents calls for safety measures which are very important and which must be taken by those who deal with ABC agents.
