THE DAVY CROCKETT - THE SMALLEST NUCLEAR WARHEAD - 3

The smallest nuclear warhead ever developed by the United States

It was a tactical weapon, intended to be used against the Soviet troops in West Germany (if stubborn communists would've decided to expand their "worker's paradise" there. The nuclear confrontation almost became a real thing during the Cuban Crisis in 1962, when Soviet & NATO forces stood against each other at Germany's Fulda Gap)

Davy Crockett was 30 inches long, 11 inches wide and weighed 76 pounds. Even though it only had a 1.5 to 3 mile range, it could be mounted on a tripod and a three-person team could carry it around or drive it on a Jeep. These "little nukes that could" were deployed in the US Army until 1971, so that American infantry during these years had a definite and highly mobile nuclear capability.

Davy Crockett's field testing revealed poor accuracy and minimal impact from the mini-explosion itself, but the radiation would certainly prove fatal within a 400-meter radius.
