    I am no expert on bombs but I am surprised that the marking on the brown bag indicates a maximum dropping speed of 150kts, this is very slow. To be going that slow over the battlefield is not good for your health. A slow speed drop is more normally accociated with sonar bouys in an anti-submarine warfare context. Just a thought.

    reminds me of parachute systems used to deploy weather devices. But hard to tell size,
    any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts was dealt with by EOD personell
