The Soviet AF dropped RRAB-bomb containers in big quantities. After Dropping the container started to rotate, spreading hundreds of small (2,5...25kg) splinter bombs over a big area (diameter even 1 km). Three sizes of the bomb containers existed: RRAB-1 (gross weight 1.000 kg), RRAB-2 (500 kg) and the depicted RRAB-3 (250 kg).
Molotov's denials of Soviet bombings of the civilian population earned it the nickname "Molotov's bread basket".

RRABs was used in DB-3s and SB-2s.

I advise to not introduce this type of bomb. It must be so deadly and terrible that it would cause too many human casualties http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

In fact, it wasn't really affective weapon. Few times it only started small fires, which were easy to extinguish.
