Description

This adapter cluster is similar in construction to the AN-M1A1, although smaller. It consists of two longitudinal hollow tubes which can be described as a barrel and separator, the separator being smaller in diameter but about x/i foot longer than the barrel. Welded to both tubes is a rear end plate support for the parachute assembly, two parachute assembly supports, a support for the point of attachment of the parachute assembly and bomb body, and finally a bomb body support.
