As NATO faced concern during the Cold War, militaries took a look at their weapons and asked, “what if we made it nuclear?” Tactical nuclear missiles and bombs were soon created, including the 230 mm M65 “Atomic Annie” in 1953. Nuclear bazookas were also created and distributed, but the M28 and M29 in were retired in 1971 after the Army decided corporals shouldn’t be shooting nuclear weapons off the back of a Jeep.
