    Air dropped incendiary clusters.

    Greetings. I am wondering if anyone can tell me how many 4 lb incendiaries were loaded in the No: 14 and the No: 15 British cluster bombs. I have had different numbers for both. I do know the American M-17 contained 110 x 4 lb incendiaries.
    The Britsh SBC's contained 90 x 4 lb or 8 x 30 lb incendiaries but the container stayed with the aircraft. I believe the No:14 and 15 dropped as a unit and then was designed to come apart closer to the ground to improve the ballistic qualities.
    Thanks Richard
