Historic image of the M65 Atomic Cannon being tested for the first time, on May 25th 1953, at the Nevada Test Site. This cannon fired 280mm shells. Hundred of high-ranking military officers and members of Congress were present for the test. Although never used, and not very practical, the cannon was not retired until 1963.
