Description

This is a unstabilized fire bomb.

The bomb M116A2 is essentially an M116A1 except that two aluminum reinforcements have been added to the fore and aft bulkheads in the center section. These reinforcements enable the M116A2 to be force ejected from an aircraft. In addition, the cap screws present on the M116A1 have been replaced by locking bolts on the M116A2.

The bomb is unpainted with a red band.
