    The E53 was an incendiary quick-opening cluster containing 14 E9 incendiary bombs. It used the E26 adapter (weighing 58 lb), and the complete E53 cluster of 14 E9 bombs weight was 618 lb.
    Initially classified as a 500lb-size class cluster, it was later re-classified more adequately as 750lb-class and as such it appears in a publication from 1954 dealing with its possible use for taking biological agents instead of incendiary bombs.

    The T36 was a "demolition bomb cluster" developed in the mid 1950s - I have no further info on is.

    5000lb SAP - the only idea I may rise is a development as a continuation of the Ruby and Harken projects. the ultimate development of this line of weapons being the prenset day bunker-buster penetartors GBU-28/BLU-113
