The X-113 was 26 inches (66cm) in diameter and 70 inches (178cm) long, and looked like corrugated culvert pipe. The whole system weighed 840 pounds (381kg). Production of the TADM started in 1961 and all were removed from stockpile by 1966. A weapons effect test of the TADM was made in the Johnny Boy shot of the Dominic II series. The yield of Johnny Boy was .5 kt.
