    The M-388 Davy Crockett was a 155mm tactical nuclear recoilless rifle with a range of 4Km. One of the smallest nuclear weapons ever fielded, developed in late 1950 for use against Soviet troops in West Germany. The M-388 round used a W-54 warhead, a very small sub-kiloton fission device weighing about 23 kg, with a selectable yield of 10 or 20 tons. The shell's greatest effect would have been its extreme radiation hazard. Even at a low yield setting, the M388 would produce an almost instantly lethal radiation dosage (<10,000 rem) within 150m, and a probably fatal dose (600 rem) within 400m. This was the last atmospheric test at the NTS, and was observed by Robert F. Kennedy.
