US Dispenser, Mk 15 Mod 0 Sadeye

 

1847-188

Description

The Mk 15 Mod 0 "Sadeye" weapons system was used for delivery of small, tactical devices and bomblets by high-performance aircraft, equipped with single and multiple-carriage bomb racks; to include a toxic and biological offensive capability. The two halves of the dispenser were locked together by a nose locking ring and an end plate screwed to the aft end.

The Sadeye was a low-drag, cluster bomb that could be delivered by all modern, high performance aircraft, equipped with single and multiple-carriage bomb racks. The weapon consisted of a semi-monocoque, skin-stressed container in longitudinal half sections, which separated for dispersion of the payload. An aircraft locking mechanism; the burster charge, and the switching unit (safe separation and firing timer) were housed in the ogive fuze well. The two halves of the dispenser were locked together by a nose locking ring and an end plate screwed to the aft end.
