The W38 nuclear artillery shell is the most famous tactical nuclear weapon for use on the battlefield. Developed in 1963 it could be fired by a standard Howitzer canon but with far more explosive power than gunpowder munitions, 15 kilotons on average. The smaller shoulder fired Dave Crocket nuclear bazooka yielded an explosive equivalent to 100 tons of TNT, an explosion roughly equivalent to that seen in Sanaa.

Also in the first video you’ll notice lots of white specs in the footage, this is not debris it is the radiation (Neutrons) from the blast hitting the CCD of the camera. The same effects can be seen in footage from Fukushima and the American nuclear tests during the 50’s.
