Panoramic view of the M65 cannon and prime movers on display at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This cannon, of which 20 were made circa 1953, fired the 15 kiloton 280mm W9 shell. Almost as soon as the cannon was fielded, though, it was rendered obsolete by battlefield nuclear rockets and nukes capable of being carried by small strike aircraft.
