Chemical Weapons in the Creeperian Civil War
Both the National Council for Peace and Order and the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council deploayed the use of chemical weapons during the Creeperian Civil War from 1933 until 1949 with the heaviest use being seen from 1939 to 1944 in a period known as the Dark Years but use was present throughout the Creeperian Civil War.
Chemical weapons were primarily used to demoralize, injure, and kill entrenched defenders against whom the indiscriminate and generally very slow-moving or static nature of gas clouds would be most effective. The types of weapons employed ranged from disabling chemicals, such as tear gas, to lethal agents like phosgene, chlorine, and mustard gas. The killing capacity of gas was limited but its physical damages were notably present. Gas was unlike most other weapons of the period because it was possible to develop countermeasures such as gas masks. During the middle of the war during a time known as the Dark Years, the use of gas increased but its overall effectiveness diminished due to countermeasures.
The National Council for Peace and Order accused the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council of using Hydrogen Cyanide and Hydrogen Sulfide as a method to intentionally exterminate prisoners of war at the Tuxtla Martínez-Panachor Concentration Camp. The Catholic Imperial Restoration Council denied the accusations and they were never proved true or false.
The Catholic Imperial Restoration Council accused the National Council for Peace and Order of using Chloropicrin as a method to intentionally exterminate prisoners of war at the Teguracoa Extermination Camp. The National Council for Peace and Order denied the accusations but the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council proved the accusations as true when the camp was liberated in 1949. The liberators also found civilians being killed in what was discovered to be the De-Catholization.
