NBC Weapons: Buying Protection From Pakistan



September 27, 2007: The Indian army is spending half a billion dollars, initially, to upgrade its defenses against chemical weapons. To that end, gas proof shelters are being built along the Pakistani border. These 110 foot long bunkers are for headquarters and communications troops and equipment. The troops are getting new gas masks and protective clothing. The new gear also protects against some biological agents, as well as radioactivity. While Pakistan has some chemical weapons, and perhaps biological ones as well, the most feared special weapons are nuclear bombs.
