Although the Tactical nuke is know mostly from the game "Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 2" it is an actual weapon of mass destruction, or WMD. The tactical nuke, in lay men's terms, is a nuclear weapon able to be used in many different situations. The technically correct term for a tactical nuke is a Tactical Nuclear Weapon (TNW).
The brothers and sisters of the TN are the gravity bomb, short range missiles, artillery shells, land mines, depth charges, and torpedos. Also in this category are SAM's.
The bomb droped on Hiroshima at the end of World War II was equal in power to that of a tactical nuke.
