Visitor Tips and News About Atomic Cannon
Another Atomic Cannon: There is an M65 at the entrance of the Yuma Proving Ground on US 95 just north of Yuma, AZ, along with a 200mm gun-howitzer. There is a rather random collection of service and developmental artillery pieces about 2 mi. inside the entrance, plus a few tanks and artillery rockets. One of the tanks may be an M103 heavy tank. The base also maintains a museum.
The gun stands alone on its pedestal and cross-track, without the dual transporter units that gave it shoot-and-scoot capability. Demilled, Condition NRA Fair.[Hugh Hixon, 04/26/2001]
