|Incendiary Bomb or
Fire Bomb is similar to aerial bombs designated BLU-1/B and M-116A2, in
500 and 1000 lbs class. These bombs are of Incendiary type and are
suitable for operation on high speed flights with low level release, up
to 100 ft (30 meters). They are equipped with an axisymetric
aerodynamic profile and are constructed fully in Aluminium.
Typical configuration is without stabilizing fins, but weapon can be equipped with fins if required. Finless version (absence of stabilizer) enables in-flight pitch rotation (perpendicular to symmetry axis), thus inducing turbulence to incendiary mixture for maximum effect at explosion with remarkable increase of affected area. Non-removable caps protect fuzes at both ends.
