    A good photo of yugoslavian KB-2 bomblet?

    I found on many places on web that there were two variants of yugoslavian bomblets from cluster warhead for 262 mm M-87 "Orkan" rocket-KB-1 and KB-2.A few sources claim that KB-2 was a bomblet with larger amount of haxatol explosive and without steel balls liner added from the outside.I know that a variant KB-1 has steel balls liner from the outside of the bomblet.
    But I didn't find anywhere a good photo of KB-2 bomblet except a drawing from some book.If any of you have a photo of KB-2 yugoslavian bomblet,please can you post it here?

    Also were KB-2 bomblets just a prototype or M-87 rocket warheads with those bomblets were in use during the civil war in ex-Yugoslavia?

    Hi Goran, here a drawing of the KB-1 and KB-2, as well as some pictures. Please send me your Email adress, I still have a cutaway drawing of the KB-1 and B-2, which regretfully seems to be too large (as JPG , PDF or BMP) to post here.
    Regards DJH

    dimensions are same, as those bomblets were designed for same containers.
