Keeping this simple and to-the-point, this game has nuclear and chemical weapons. That's two out of three. The game needs biological weapons. Bio-weapons should do very little in the way of destroying targets, but they should wreak extreme population havoc. Biological weapons should be added for realism.

Any thoughts?

like it could tie into a newly implemented epidemic disaster

This would add nothing to the game... the number of nuclear weapons in the game is already questionable, but each does fill a unique gameplay role:
Strategic Bombs create a disaster in a 2 country radius.
Nuclear Missiles create a disaster in a 1 country radius.
Tactical Weapons create a disaster in only the attacked country.
Submarine Missiles add unlimited range to nuclear capability.
Chemical Missiles allow weaker disasters without requiring the weapons grade uranium + plutonium supply line.

A biological disaster would function exactly the same as a Chemical disaster, Nuclear disaster, or Earthquake. These are all essentially the same thing, slapping on a new name and size adds nothing to gameplay. There is no role for it to play... a non-plutonium supplied Nuke-power-level weapon is completely imbalanced anyway... and that sounds like what you're proposing.

Yeah, I thought the chem weapons caused less infrastructure damage but normal population damage. Which is the point of biological weapons. I reckon they are just two different names for the same thing.

And if I had a pound for every time I've seen this suggestion...
