appears to have been canceled

As per contract with the French-German Government coalition to
acquire military intelligence on "Gold Base," I set up my
off-shore Grand Cayman Island bank account for the transfer of
payment, and then I set off to earn my diabolical pay.

In company was that woman of mystery, Secret Agent 99, wearing
a stunning black leather biker outfit with silver chains and
belt buckles, matching tiny Colt .45 pistol ear rings, and
standard German Army-issued boots (see catalog page 23). A
fierce bird of prey stood at the ready upon her shoulder, least
a pink-suited dwarf be spied jogging about in place.

I wore the standard Armani tuxedo with codpiece and dreadlocks,
with a silenced Walther PBK reported as "lost in the field" at
M5, Southbys, London, tucked into my cummerbund. A white
carnation--- my trademark--- was pinned insolently on my broad,
beefy, bulging left pectoral.

We looked dashing, dangerous, fun to invite to baby showers and
the occasional bat mitzvah.

Having arrived in a custom Saab 484ie 10-cylinder iron-colored
all-wheel drive land transport, we swiftly disabled the
infrared detectors, the motion detectors, the land mines, the
barbed wire, the sixteen motion picture cameras, the six attack
dogs, and the assorted RPFer out looking for road kill to eat.

"Ha!" said Agent 99, "You said it would take us more than six
minutes to penetrate the objective." The way she said the word
"penetrate" made my scrotum tighten ever so slightly, but I
forced such thoughts aside and focused on the task at hand.

LOP = Line of Position, used for bearings more than 30 feet
away, and thus could not be approached without "takin' out" the
opposition. Where two or more lines of position cross, the
bearing is positioned to good accuracy. The more LOPs the
better.

"Pad and pen me, cruel, deadly wench!" I said to 99. She
slapped a notebook and stylus in my left hand, keeping my gun
arm free.

We set to work....

... and were soon done. I looked at 99 and saw that, as usual
when a mission has been accomplished to success, her eyes were
dilated and her face flush; she was panting, her lips a'quiver,
and she gave off those tiny little kitten sounds of building
ecstasy that you only hear in movies that have no dialog in
them. "Easy, doll," I cautioned her. "We aren't out of the
woods... er, I mean weeds... yet."

"Take me! Take me NOW!" 99 demanded. Her bird of prey squawked
and called out in anger, wings flapping like some demon
straight from the very depths of HELL. She grabbed me by the
cummerbund, spilling the pistol recklessly to the ground, and
then frantically wrestled to free me from the codpiece....

... then I woke up, yawned, stretched, and went back to sleep.

You're using the dumbed-down GPS for that, though, aren't you? The
military GPS resolution is going to give you an impact point within
_feet_ of the desired destination point, isn't it? And even if not,
with Keith Henson up on the hill providing on-target IR illumination,
GPS won't even be needed. }:-}

No way. Modern weapons are accurate to a matter of a few tens of yards.


The terminal guidence ones are good to single digits.

To achieve that sort of accuracy on a ballistic missile you need
to know what the X,Y,Z position and X',Y',Z' speeds will be at
launch within a few cms and cms/sec. Possible on at a fixed land
site, not possible on a submarine hence the 750metres.
The (slower) terrain-following cruise missiles are usually accurate
within metres and don't make mistakes, once you have set them up to
high resolution satellite images of the terrain.

Thus there always used to be a compromise that fast systems which
could hit very accurately couldn't be moved around in a forward
position, to hit early and-or hide them from attack.

With a MRBM, it's about the equivilant of standing on top of the
Empire State Building, and hawking a lugie into a shot glass on the
street below.

I was reckoning that the French haven't improved their platform
stability to that point. Not to mention, if the CoS were to do a
high-altitude EMP burst....

Plus, I like Keith too much to have him on a hill within 2 miles of
a site where 300 kilotons of hurt is gonna rain down... Keith, if
you're gonna be there... Get the SPF 8000 sunblock... and some
sunglasses. :)

You have two factors working against you with ballistic missiles: (1)
Weather, and (2) Weather. The wind and air density (and even sunlight)
can affect your trajectory. The Pluton is a solid motor, so it cannot
be turned off if you overshoot. Then when you release the warheads,
they free-fall. Weather plays again.
For obvious reasons, you generally do not laser-guide nuclear
weapons (wear sunscreen if you do!). GPS is a good choice, if it
survives...
Strategic weapons don't necessarily have to be accurate. A couple
hundred kilotons with an air burst doesn't have to be right on.
Not to mention, they're the French! They've kind of developed
indenpendantly of the US/UK program, and the Pluton is a fairly old
missile.

Usually you have guidance involving giroscopes and astronomical
sightings. If only the "bus" has guidance and the warheads
free-fall than the accuracy starts decreasing. If the individual
warheads have terminal guidance then they stay accurate.

Unless I suppose you can place an unmanned guidance system and leave.

Depends what on: on a hardened silo you need a nearby groundburst.
