Secret Of Air Force’s New Cluster Bomb Replacement Is Technology From 1784

Last week the U.S. Air Force announced successful tests of the BLU-136 Next Generation Area Attack Weapon, a 2,000-pound munition to replace its controversial cluster bombs. The new weapon aims to be as lethal as a cluster bomb, but without leaving unexploded warheads afterwards. It does this with a new version of a very old technology – but arms control experts are still skeptical of its purpose.

Cluster bombs saturate the area below with small bomblets or submunitions, like the USAF’s 1,000-pound CBU-103, which scatters over 200 bomblets resembling soda cans across an area the size of two football pitches. This is enough to ensure anyone inside that area will almost certainly be killed or injured. Such weapons are devastatingly effective but notoriously ‘dirty’ because up to five

  • The US Air Force recently conducted operational tests of a new fragmenting bomb intended to replace controversial cluster munitions.
  • F-16s dropped 10 BLU-136 Next-Generation Area Attack Weapons (NGAAWs) at the Nellis Test and Training Range.
  • Unlike cluster bombs, the 2,000-pound BLU-136 releases metal fragments rather than explosive submunitions, which tend to end up as unexploded ordnance that poses a serious threat to civilians.
