This set features a number of new
chemical and biological ordnance for use with Global War -2nd
edition. It is a testament to the
horrific effects of these weapons that they considered too brutal for use in
the Second World War. However, these weapons were at times used clandestinely by the Axis. The Japanese used
them against China and the Italians used gas against the Abyssinians.
On the eve of World War II the
production capacity of many nations far outstripped its World War I
capabilities. Germany, which could
produce about 40,000 tons of gas per year in World War I had the capacity to
create 184,000 tons by 1939. Germany had also excelled in the development
of new gases such as Tabun and Sarin gas with near 10 time the toxic potential
of Mustard Gas (which itself was responsible for a quarter of all US casualties
in WW I).
In these set we will explore the
use of weapons in select theatres as well as the grim possibility of their
full-scale use. In researching this
set, I can’t begin to describe the abject horror and brutality of these weapons
and the experiments used to test them.
