Watervliet Arsenal, Watervliet

Watervliet Arsenal, Watervliet

The interesting thing about this place is, that the surrounding area is in high-res and the arsenal itself is low-res. Looks like censoring at GE.

M65 Atomic Cannon, Junction City

M65 Atomic Cannon, Junction City

The atomic cannon was a huge piece of ordnance built by the United States in the mid-1950s to hurl nuclear shells far enough that they wouldn't kill the people who fired them. While far more sensible WWIII technology than, say, the atomic hand grenade, the atomic cannon did have its detractors and tactical limitations.
