M29 Cluster Bomb

The 415-pound M29 cluster bomb was used during World War II against enemy troops, unarmored vehicles and artillery. Typically carried by fighters and medium bombers, the M29 was dropped from between 2,000 and 3,000 feet. After release, the outer seal separated to dispense 90 4-pound fragmentation bomblets over a relatively wide area.
