My local university library has issues of JBIS stopping as of '78 :-(
They can however get that article or any others (as long as I supply 
the specifics) via inter-Library loan, but even they admit this will also
take many weeks :-( 

As I am interested in finding our more about the US and CIS (re: Soviet)
military payloads I'd like to ask the following questions.

1. Does anyone know of an online source to JBIS?  Or even an online source
   to JBIS indices such that I may attempt to track down other articles?

2. Does anyone already have such a list?  Failing my ability to access 
   online any indices?

3. Does anyone have the above article or other articles from JBIS that
   can be e-mailed or "snail" mailed to me failing all else?

Once again, many thanks in advance....Bill
