Would this be worth re-introducing now cluster munitions are out?

Saw this in the "Jack as f ck" weapons thread.

Kinetic projectiles for airdropping as per cluster munitions. Inert items so I can't see how they would be covered by the Ottawa convention but would be quite good for smashing vehicle columns, defensive positions etc.

Each one was reckoned to have similar impact energy to 50BMG and they were dropped at up to 15,000 per launch pod.

These would work from MLRS or air dropped I reckon.


Worth revisiting?

Would be a godsend for Model Aeroplane makers
