    I do not think that the factory in the film in #6 makes all the parts itself. It requires a large factory with lots of different Industrial expertise which makes a company expensive. I assume they had several subcontractors making the seperate plastic and metal parts, sometimes delivered allready as semi completed components. The only thing they would have done themselves is assembling the semi completed components, explosives filling, CBU assembly, testing and packaging. Do not forget that exept for these -relatively simple- bomblets there is the CBU housing which has a very difficult and expensive Zamac cast center piece, so it's wise to subcontract.

    Can you post all the measurements for the submunitions?

    I am curious to see the differences side by side. Also, are there any differences in HE weights?

    Hi @sprockets, I see you're in Dunstable. So, just down the road from the old Hunting (low lockheed) site at Amptill. Did you have any involvement with Huntings at all? Just wondering, so I know how to reply on this topic... :-)
