Reagan is expected to announce monday that he has approved an air Force recommendation that the too intercontinental weapons be clustered in underground shelters within a 14-Square-mile area White House and Pentagon officials say. The announcement was expected to come a few hours before Reagan gives a nationally televised address a on arms control monday night. Reagan sex plan known variously As a closely spaced Basing and a dense pack a comes in response to a dec. I deadline set by Congress for proposing a Home for the missiles. Then Congress which begins a lame Duck session nov. 29, will have 30 legislative Days to veto the plan a vote that is expected to be close. Meantime it has forbidden the Pentagon to set aside Money for Basing the weapons. The question of How and where to deploy the 71-foot-Long, 192,000-Pound missiles has beep unanswered since the weapons were first proposed in 1973. More than 30 different Basing plans have been considered. Even though the weapon system has no Home More than $4-5 billion already has been spent on research and development. The Pentagon has set the total program Cost at about $25 billion but critics say the final Price could be double that. Supporters of the program say the weapon is needed because increasingly accurate soviet missiles have made the current . Force of 1,052 minuteman and Titan land based inst ter Continental missiles vulnerable to destruction in their silos. Each my or a missile experimental a will have to warheads and will be highly accurate. While the my is scheduled to go into production next year the a dense pack base wont be ready until 1986. In the interim Reagan proposed putting the first 40 missiles into existing minutemen silos but the idea was turned Down cold by Congress. Although the president could make some last minute change the version of a dense pack he is most Likely to approve would put All too missiles into the by an area about 14 Miles Long and a mile wide. A dense pack backers say missiles would be saved a fratricide a a theory which holds that incoming soviet missiles would Knock each out leaving some my weapons Able to retaliate. Another option is to build More than too silos for the missiles leaving some of the shelters empty. That would make it More difficult for the soviets to target the missiles say my locates. A dense pack has Many critics Adas have All the other Basing plans. One is Charles Townes a physicist and Nobel laureate who headed a defense science Board panel that studied the idea. Townes has reportedly questioned whether the missiles can be put into a super hardened a or blast proof silos quicker than the soviets can come up with better weapons. Other critics say my is a waste of Money because they argue improved guidance technology has made All land based missiles vulnerable. The United states they argue should build improved missiles for its Trident submarines. B by the associated press Greeneville Tenn. A North Carolina it. Gov.
