Press reports of a large Soviet military exercise held last week indicate that the Ganef is being used on large-scale maneuvers. The system is intended to provide greater mobility to missile forces defending Soviet ground troops. In previous Soviet military exercises, notably the Carpathian exercise in 1961, SA-2 SAM units assigned to protect ground forces were unable to keep up with fast-moving units in the field and were plagued by resupply problems. Ganef missiles are twin-mounted on tracked transporter- launchers that give the system good mo- bility. The large AN-22 assault transport can airlift the transporter-launchers with the missiles attached. The ram-jet - powered Ganef reportedly has an ef- fective range of about 27 nautical miles and probably can hit aircraft flying as high as 65, 000 feet.

The Sultan, who stepped down on 4 October in favor of his eldest son, has been. the major stumbling- block in recent years to British desires to lead the oil-rich protectorate toward responsible self-govern- ment and eventual independence. London's decision to withdraw its Gurkha battalion next year may have contributed to the Sultan's decision to abdicate. Malaysia has long wanted to incorporate Brunei into the federation for economic as well as political reasons. It is doubtful, however, that the new ruler would consider sharing with Kuala Lumpur his oil revenues, which give Brunei the highest per capita in- co,ipe in Southeast Asia. Dissident political elements, remnants of those which staged an abortive rebellion in December 1962, are unlikely to use the transfer of power to create disorders, since they will benefit from any move to- ward democratic government. The presence of the Gurkha battalion and the indigenous Brunei Malay Regiment in an case would assure the maintenance of security.

Some French officials already are in Brazil anq an active-duty air force general representing the French Government is expected in Rio de Janeiro on 21 October to continue negotiations with the Brazilian Air Force. A possible package deal may be in the making, in- cluding a French agreement to establish an aircraft factory in Brazil. This prospect is particularly at- tractive both to the Brazilian Air Force, which has long sought to establish such a capability, and to the govern- ment, which is pushing to expand the national industrial base. Brazil is eager to modernize its equipment and has attempted to purchase US-made F-5 supersonic jets, If the US-Brazilian discussions on this subject do not begin soon the deal with the French may be concluded, 6 Oct 67 25X1 25X1 Approved For R (ease 2002/10/25 : CIA-RDP79T009 5A010400050001-0 Approved For Release 2002/10/25: CIA-RDP79T0 Peru- Chile: Peruvian charges that Chile recently acquired guided missiles and other military hardware from the Soviet Union are false. A Peruvian congressman claimed on 2 October that in addition to guided missiles, Chile recently p4r- chased supersonic fighter aircraft and tanks from the Soviet Union. He also alleged that a $500 million credit deal was being negotiated for additional Soviet military equipment. The Peruvian press has played up the congressman's statements. None of Chile's military armament is of Soviet origin. The only missile in its inventory is the British- made Sea Cat--a destroyer-mounted antiaircraft weapon with limited range. The congressman's charges may be designed to justify Lima's purchase from France of tanks and of =supersonic Mirage-V aircraft--a simplified version of the Mirage-III. 25X1 6 Oct 67 Approved For Release 2002/10/25 : CIA-RDP79T00P75AO10400050001-0 Approved For Release 2002/10/25 : CIA-RDP79T USSR-Pakistan: The communique issued on 4 October at the end of President Ayub's ten-day visit to the USSR contained nothing unexpected. The Soviets promised increased economic and technical assistance, but there is no sign that Ayub persuaded Moscow to give him the arms he says he needs agaipst an Indian threat. The Soviets continue to tread care- fully in. the area of Pakistani-Indian relations; Premier Kosygin publicly offered Moscow's blessings to bi- lateral efforts in this field. 6 Oct 67 25X1 Approved For Release 2002/10/25 : CIA-RDP79T00975A010400050001-0 Top SO reted For Release 2002/10/25 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO10400050001-0 Top Secret Approved For Release 2002/10/25 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO10400050001-0
