I saw another person's post on the M14 operation and function so I went to http://www.archive.org to see if the video was there to download. After I found it I started searching for others and compiled a list of the videos that I found. Best to download the largest file then view or burn to DVD.

The 280 mm Gun at the Nevada Proving Ground (1953)
The testing of the Mark 9 atomic artillery shell was the Grable event, part of a much larger series of nuclear detonations under the umbrella of Operation UPSHOT-
KNOTHOLE in 1953. This operation conducted at the Nevada Test Site consisted of 11 atmospheric tests.
There were three airdrops, seven tower tests, and one airburst. Conducted between March 17 and June 4, 1953, this operation involved the testing of new theories. A new
and revolutionary method of producing deliverable nuclear weapons was successfully tested. Approximately 21,000 Department of Defense military and civilian personnel
participated in Operation UPSHOT-KNOTHOLE as part of the DESERT ROCK V exercise. Unfortunately, Operation UPSHOT-KNOTHOLE, particularly the "Harry" test, drew a
great deal of criticism as resultant fallout levels produced increased offsite radiation exposures. The tests comprising the 1953 Operation UPSHOT-KNOTHOLE were as follows:
ANNIE, March 17, tower, weapons related, 16 kilotons (kt)
NANCY, March 24, tower, weapons related, 24 kt
RUTH, March 31, tower, weapons related, 200 tons
DIXIE, April 6, airdrop, weapons related, 11 kt
RAY, April 11, tower, weapons related, 200 tons
BADGER, April 18, tower, weapons related, 23 kt
SIMON, April 25, tower, weapons related, 43 kt
ENCORE, May 8, airdrop, weapons effects, 27 kt [an important test in correlating blastwave and devastating precursor wave formation data of the Grable event]
HARRY, May 19, tower, weapons related, 32 kt
GRABLE, May 25, fired from 280 mm gun, 500 feet airburst, weapons related, 15 kt [equivalent to the yield of the bomb the destroyed Hiroshima, Japan]
CLIMAX, June 4, airdrop, weapons related, 61 kt
The Mark 9 nuclear artillery shell weighed 550 pounds and was fired 7 miles from the cannon firing location to the target array downrange.
