Drop them from shallow dive - less then 15' and the magic will happen

Yeah, never ran it that way, so who knows? I tend to not use CCRP, though I get the usefulness of it. Never tried it before using LGBs.

With a spacing of 999FT (the max allowed) two CBU-97's will cover .5 x .3 nm area with tremendous effects. this works on all maps.

Kobileti CA

Tonopah Airport NV

all runways are 1.5 NM long 6xCBU-97's Ripple 6 Spacing 999ft Dropped from 2000FT AGL around 600 KNTs.
The following is Shiraz International Airport's Main Apron, 1 pass, 10xCBU-97, Spacing 999ft, Ripple 10, Dropped form 2000ft AGL at 600knts.

from this testing it is very clear that they are functioning appropriately for the intended employment however it will be very nice when i can change the Burst Altitude to be able to employ these from 30'000 FT. Current suggested use, conduct a SEAD strike and take out radars with SU-25T's or F/A-18C's then run in with two vipers at 2,000 ft AGL .3-.5nm horizontal separation and drop to your hearts content. Hope this helps folks! Got to say it may be lacking for dog fighting right now but I am cleaning house A2G!

This is awesome, I was having fun with the smart CBU's but I had no clue you could spread them out so much.

Thanks for the heads up!I'm gonna have a "blast" in PVE MP now..lol

But I guess setting that up ourselves via Kneeboard will take a little longer, have been waiting for that for over a year in case of the Hornet

You guessed it right, that is as in real life - from all the few we're allowed to know, it's still classified stuff after all.


We are still missing the dispenser altitude opening setting, for what I can see, so let's just hope to get a fix soon.


With best regards.

This made a world of difference. Drop in CCIP, low level (anything between 600-1000ft), high speed 450-550kts ingress, level drop or very slight dive. Very effective!

I believe if u have it set to nose, they spread open right after dropped.
If it’s nose/tail, it’s 500 ft.

I think i read that in the manual.

Talking about CBU, yesterday I tried to kill M113 with CBU-87. One CBU-87 per one M113, bomblets cover the vehicle perfectly but not even a percent of life bar lost.... 6 drops, 0 kill.... XD

Yes exactly.
Need some more tinkering to learn how to use this weapon properly, maybe tomorrows patch means we can adjust the burst altitude which would be great.
