Marquardt CBU Mark 20 "Rockeye II" Cluster Bomb

The CBU Mark 20 Rockeye II was an antitank cluster bomb that dispensed 247 shaped-charge bomblets. This unguided free-fall weapon was developed by the U.S. Naval Weapons Center in 1963 and was produced in 1967. Weighing close to 500 pounds, the CBU Mark 20 was delivered by aircraft to the target area and upon release opened to expel anti-tank bomblets that could destroy a number of targets on the ground simultaneously.
