Plains Feeder

Posted by Dan Draney on May 14, 2005

At Plains Feeder, PTG has a sort of 2-in-1 post. The first part is about Condi Rice, but then he shows a picture of an honest to goodness, short range nuke from the sixties, The Davy Crockett: Plains Feeder: King of the wild frontier.

The museum he links to says these babies had a range of 1,000 to 13,000 feet. It doesn’t mention the explosive yield, but the idea of firing a nuke at something less than a quarter of a mile away is somehow unappealing.
