Abstract:

This test was initiated for the purpose of determining the effect of release altitude and distance of fall upon the vertical and horizontal distribution of 20-lb. fragmentation bombs released in clusters, in order to determine the optimum release interval and the degree of sighting accuracy necessary for effective employment of M26 clusters in air-to-air bombing.
