Abstract : Aerodynamic analyses and wind tunnel test data were used to investigate a new dispersion technique for general purpose and cluster bombs released on skids from cargo aircraft. Using the present approach, all bombs tend to impact in the same small area. The new technique involved the addition of a drag plate to the rear of the bomb fin assembly. The use of two sizes of plates (plus the standard configuration) would provide three ballistic trajectories for the bombs mounted on one skid. (Author)
