Chemical Warfare

Types of gases

Tear Gas~ Tear gas wasn't used to severely harm or kill enemies, it was just used to keep them from defending their posts. It caused crying, due to the irritation. It can also cause irritation to the mouth, throat, and lungs. Being exposed to huge amounts could cause temporary blindness.

Mustard Gas~ Mustard gas was first introduced in WW1, it was easy to get but it left a terrible reminder to the victims. Although the gas was banned it has been starting to be used once again.
