This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile13802/M65-Atomic-Cannon,-Junction-City.htm>M65 Atomic Cannon, Junction City</a></b><br><br>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. <br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=new/080505/35602cannon.jpg>
