Years before I heard of this Atomic Chess, I knew of another game by the same name: a 12x12 variant with Tanks and Aircraft, where Atomic Bombs only appeared as a result of Pawn promotion. It dated to the late 1940s (I think) and was patented in France. It doesn't seem that anyone here has heard of this variant.
