I had a new missile launcher to kit out and the Fate Points to spare, so I gave it a try:
Thanks, appreciate it.
It doesn't surprise me. Serious chemical warfare is out of style. The US military occasionally still uses white phosphorus for it's anti-personnel and anti-equipment incendiary effects (shake and bake, but it's also quite toxic if inhaled in high concentrations--especially indoors), but little attention is paid to the other, old masters. WP is great all around for marking and smoke, but was banned decades ago.
So the big three. Blood (cyanide) first, then blister, then nerve--use in that order. Use persistent and non-persistent nerve versus specific kinds of targets. The value of persistent is added area denial for some variable time; more difficult to decontaminate. It's all very situational with weather, etc. Science stuff. Handy to use against important fixed sites that require outside work, until you have the time to seriously destroy them (e.g. military airfields, outdoor storage).
So more to the point of this (meh) feat, specific agents used in chemical warfare are designed to attack and compromise the materials used to provide sealed personal protective equipment. I suppose the idea is, if you are going to break the law, why use half measures. That's why there is the old order to agent use.
