BLG-252 is a Brazilian cluster bomb, with the load of 248 submunitions with mixed effect antitank / mines.

Operation[edit]

After the release, in a safe distance, the bomb opens its covering shells. The opening of the shells occurs by the action of a charge, driven by mechanical time fuses, located on the warhead and tail of the artifact. The dispersion of the submunitions is obtained as a function of the rotation acquired by the bomb after the release, determining the effectiveness area.[1]
