troops from the import Including iwn u W V WASHINGTON ft The Army has unveiled a new 85lon atomic gun and shown that it can roil nimbiy across fields into position to fire superexplosive barrages within 20 minutes It is the worlds first atomic ar ullery piece The gun which the Army calls an allpurpose weapon was put Uirough its paces at a special pre view for photograhers at the Aber deen Md Proving Grounds re cently Ordnance experts have been try ing out its mobility and firing ca pacity for months at the testing grounds but standard ammunition was used rather than atomic rounds The Army indicated that the weapon can use either atomic or standard rounds merely by chang ing the type of missile fThe gun has a caliber of 280 mil 12 inches This in itself discloses how com pactly lhe Atomic Energy ConY mission scientists now are able to build atomicmissiles which at one time could barely be crowded into the bomb bay of a B29 There vas talk at the demonstra tion of a 20mile range for the gun This approximates the range for coastal defense and naval guns of somewtiat similar caliber Twenty miles would be a practi cal distance for placing the gun safely behind friendly jlines firing over those lines and laying down anjalomic barrage on enemy in fantry and armor without endan gering friendly troops from blasts heat or radiation In the nonatomic demonstration at Aberdeen conventional propel lanl charges of standard powder in bags were loaded behind an or dinary test projectile The rate of fire seemed to be approximately that of any of the large caliber nonautomatic guns used by the Army and Navy This is how Uie allpurpose wea pon looks to visitors Its tube is almost 40 feet long designed to stabilize the missile by a spinning motion just like a standard gun The elevation of its muzzle or maximum range appears also to be like that used in a standard gun A twogun battery is used in the Aberdeen tests Nine other vehicles are used in support including two powergen erating trucks The power unit is hooked to the gun by electrical cable thus supplying electrical power for traversing and raising the elevation of the rifle Two engine cabs looking much like the hauling end of the tractor trailer rigs you sec on the high ways but with heavier construc tion supply the power for moving the chassis through 500horsepow er engines The gun ami its mount are sus pended between the two cabs In its movements the gun han dlesalmost exactly like a fire de partments aerial ladder truck The driver in the rear cab has u telephone headset connecting him with the forward cab driver who keeps the tiller man informed of his steering moves Essentially the atomic gun is a vastly improved version of the familiar railway with the majoradvantage of not being pinned down to railroad lines The gun wheeling off a highway over which it can move at the speed of inost heavyladen trucks trundles out on to a field climbing over humps and rough ground on the many wheels of its two trac tors and followed by he support ing units of trucks There is no or spade like ordinary artillery pieces used to hold the gun in position aguinst the action of recoil The tube is so precisely balanced on the mount that the recoil has iltlc effect ATOMIC is the giant aelfpropelicd cannon designed to atomic blast deep into enemy territory Endang d Country Aft Eisenhower to Use
