Items in the compilation are arranged in three sections: Section I provides summary information for a) newly identified targets, b) previously reported targets which show a change, and c) all targets showing order of battle information. Section II provides a listing of those targets which reflect no change in facilities from previous target description. The mission number shown on the photo reference line (e.g., NAC 9000) refers to the MCI which contains the most adequate description of that target. Military installations where no order of battle can be determined are listed under this section. Section III provides a listing of those targets which could be identified but not interpreted. All three sections are arranged 1) by country, 2) within a country by subject, 3) within a subject by WAC area, and 4) within a WAC area by coordinates reading from south to north and from west to east. The map base used (when available) for the derivation of coordinates in this report is the latest edition of the US Air Target Chart, Series 200. For the convenience of the user, a subject index to all targets has been in- cluded following Section III. Targets in the subject index are listed 1) by cate- gory, 2) by country within each category, and 3) alphabetically by place name within each country. An explanation of column headings and photo reference data used in presenting the information is contained in the appendix.

Consequently, although the information presented herein is essen- tially accurate, additional, detailed analysis may somewhat alter portions of the information. - iv - Approved For Release 2001/08/21 : CIA-RDP78B04560A000800; W 6s ESSRUFF NO FOREIGN DISSEM t 1 ' TOP SECRET CHESS RUFF NPIC/R-213/63 NO FOREIGN DISSEM I TABLE OF CONTENTS Page Mission Highlights ....................................... vii Listing of Intelligence Items for: Country Subject Section I Page Section II Page Section III Page USSR Missiles 1 15 21 Air Installations 5 17 22 Nuclear Energy 22 Military/Naval Installations 9 18 22 CBR Warfare 9 22 Electronics /Communications 18 23 Industry 10 18 23 Basic Services 10 Ports and Harbors 19 Storage 11 19 Urban Complexes 11 19 China Missiles 11 20 Air Installations 12 Military/Naval Installations 12 CBR Warfare 20 Industry 20 Urban Complexes 13 20 Subject Index .......................................... 25 Appendix ............................................. 33 Approved For Release 2001/08/2: CIA-RDP78BO456OA0008a O6 CRZT CHESS RUFF NO FOREIGN DISSEM t t r t TOP SECRET CHESS RUFF MISSION HIGHLIGHTS NPIC/R-213/63 Mission 8003, utilizing the KH-6 camera system, was accomplished on 31 July and 1 August 1963, and provided 15 passes over the USSR and China.
