Wow. I did know that small scale (1 kT) nukes were possible, but .01 kT? That's impressive in and of itself. And the smallest version was still several times as powerful as the Oklahoma City explosive.

Definitely worth a read, if only for the interesting historical side, and the refference to nuclear land mines.

Battlefield nukes? Sure. The scary thing is that the military planned for "effective" use of nuclear weapons, as opposed to MAD, or strategic uses.

Mind you, what options would be left after an army was vaporized by several of these "small" nukes, is debatable.

You younger fellas might not recall this, but in the '70's and early '80's, there was constant military talk about "winning" a NBC exchange, were the Soviets would use chemical and biological agents on our troops, and we would respond with battlefield nukes and "limited" strategic strikes.

What a time to grow up.

Does everyone remember Nuetron Bombs?

Yep. Part of me still thinks they're a pipe dream, but the ability to completely wipe out an enemy population without damaging any of the resources or leaving behind undesirable elements (radiation, etc) is waaay too appealing to any military to pass up.
