The history of the Atomic Cannon reaches back into World War II. In November 1944, the U.S. Army expressed the need for a heavy, mobile long-range artillery weapon for attacking enemy field fortifications or communication centers and for counterbattery fire on enemy long-range artillery. This requirement led to the initiation of development of the 240mm Gun Tl. In October 1946, the Chief of Ordnance assigned Watertown Arsenal the responsibility to develop the carriage and Waterfliet Arsenal the responsibility for development of the 240mm gun. The final design was approved in May 1947 and in 1950, two prototype 240mm guns had been completed and were tested at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
