Abstract:

Hardware and method are disclosed for mixing at least two non-toxic chemical compounds in a warhead for missiles and artillery projectiles to form a toxic agent during their ballistic travel to a target. The inventive design avoids danger from spills of toxic agent during shipment, handling or storage of chemical ammunition by not allowing the constituents of such agent to mix until shortly before the ammunition impacts the targets.
