The 165-foot-long cannon, capable of firing projectiles armed with nuclear devices and lethal chemicals at targets more than 100 miles away, had been tested and was nearly operational. The cannon was one of several "super-guns" that Hussein planned to acquire as part of his ill-fated drive toward military dominance in the Persian Gulf.

But Major continued to deny that he had early knowledge of a shipment of arms-making machine tools from Britain to Baghdad.
