Internal view of a Medium Atomic Demolition Munition (nuclear landmine) produced by the United States from 1965 to 1986. From left to right: packing container, warhead, code-decoder unit, firing unit.

The MADM had a relatively low yield for a nuclear weapon (1-15 kilotons) though in human terms it would still be increadibly powerful. The entire unit weighed less than 400 lbs.

    “The MADM had a relatively low yield for a nuclear weapon (1-15 kilotons) ”

    Relatively low yield!
    Ask someone from Hiroshima (15 kT) if they agree with that assessment.

    Relative to an ICBM, maybe.


    *click* hey what was that noi- VAPORIZED!


    that doesn’t seem overkill at all.


    I don’t think it was actually intended to be used as a landmine. That would be stupid. Landmines go off at unexpected times (when they are stepped on/driven on). If you’ve deployed nukes, you want to know exactly when it is going off. I think it was just a low yield tactical nuke.


    There was a series of Atomic Demolitions Munitions (ADMs). Small/Special (SADM), Medium (MADM), and Large/Heavy (HADM). They primarily for channelizing and destroying large columns of Soviet tanks coming through the Fulda Gap in W Germany.
    According to Wikipedia:
    The Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM) was a family of man portable nuclear weapons fielded by the US military in the 1960s, but was never used in actual combat. The US Army planned to use the weapons in Europe in case of a Soviet Invasion. US Army Engineers would use the weapon to irradiate, destroy, and deny key routes of communication through limited terrain such as the Fulda Gap. US Army Special Forces were trained to jump the SADM into Soviet overrun/occupied western Europe and destroy power plants, bridges, and dams.


    what the hell is a nontactical nuke? I don’t think they have any other uses.


    a tatical nuke is whats used agianst soldiers on a battlefield.

    a stratigic nuke is whats launched at an area on a map, to wipe out an area.


    Nuclear Landmines… That’s just soo wrong…

    Where can I get one?
