History
The BL755 looks like a standard 1,000 lb (450 kg) store but with a hard 'saddle' on the spine for ejector release and crutching pad loads and a distinctive large turbine-like air arming vane on the nose. The four rear fins are very squared off in appearance, but on closer inspection can be seen to be hollow and telescopic. A central extruded aluminum skeleton provides seven bays long by seven bays around, each containing 3 submunitions (147 total). These are telescoped and expand to their full length on ejection by a central cartridge and individual 'balloon' for each bay. A focal distance standoff and detonating device deploys in front with a stabilizing device aft. They are self contained with their own SAFU (safety and arming unit). Each has a shaped charge for armor penetration, the casing of which is constructed from wound tesselated square wire, reputedly providing about 1400 anti personnel fragments. Together with the debris of other parts of the weapon, total fragment count approaches a quarter of a million. It is rumored the remains of the main weapon skeleton itself has enough kinetic energy to strip the tracks off a tank. The original stabilizing device was a spring steel 'coronet'. Apparently tests were later performed on a rigid plastic para-cup as a cost saving idea. This was found to be too stable and did not disperse the bomblets sufficiently. Rumor has it that this was resurrected for a dive-bomb attack version.
