Directorate T is the arm of the KGB that focuses on scientific and technological intelligence.  Its foreign operation arm is known internally as Line X[1].

Background Edit

By the 1970s the gap between Soviet and Western technology had increased to the point that Soviet technology was a significant step behind the Americans.  In order to redress the balance, the KGB was charged with obtaining any and all information relating to Western technology.[2]

According to the files given to the French secret service by Colonel Vladimir Vetrov, a KGB Directorate T defector, by the early 1980s the KGB had 100 Line X officers based at 10 Western embassies, utilizing a network of 100 informants.
