No, no shaped nuclear charges yet.
I cited my sources. I also have personal experience I didn't mention. I didn't say how to do it. I said from the sources I have seen, generally the commander on the ground is going to want to blow the bad guy's fortress to rubble. This is reasonable and you end up with this if the fighting goes on long enough. (image from ww2)

Modern weapons do not change much other than making it possible to be a little more selective on what you blow up. We don't have the hunter-killer nanobot fogs yet, and I don't think they'll be ready by next Tuesday...might take a little longer...
