MIRVED Blue Streak?


Some years ago when talking to three key people who worked on Chevaline about declassified aspects of the programme my question was anticipated when they all grinned and said “Yes, Blue Streak could, (have been Mirved) it would have been easy” Then would not elaborate.
What I was not aware off at the time was that the evolving Blue Streak with the “one megaton H-Bomb” design became so small by 1958 that it was suggested in Government archived documents that with range limited to 2,500n.miles three additional identical inert rounds could be included as “clone” decoys. This if it was under study in 1959 would make it early.
Has any one else seen anything about this aspect of the programme?
