      Not in this case
      Now any military operations in a highly urbanized area require careful monitoring of the presence of potent toxic substances and fissile materials on the battlefield.

      An artillery strike at a cold factory is a cloud of ammonia. Air strike on treatment or water treatment facilities - chlorine cloud. Well and so on.

    Useful business.
    The fleet of RHBZ machines, of course, needs to be increased and updated. Not all the same on UAZs and BRDM to drive chemical forces ....
    Especially good is that the machine somehow measures the situation around and again quickly transfers information to the top ....
