That and cluster munitions nowadays have a lovely little thing in them that causes them to self destruct on a timer rather than sit there like a mine.  You can see that in the cluster MLRS videos from the BM-21's and Uragans.  But yeah, cluster munitions are crazy.

The CBU-97 (or 105) is full-on mental.

Very ingenious, but it appears to miss almost all of the tanks ....

And the payload mass-fraction of that system is atrociously low! And I couldn't work out what height the skeets are at when they detonate, but given that explosively-formed penetrators have relatively limited ranges and can't form under rotating conditions I genuinely can't figure out how the hell they actually get the kill :/

There's a youtube video somewhere of a US JTAC in Iraq that says he took out a 4 mile column of light armor and other vics with a single run from an AC-130 with these bombs. 

The skeet detonations are those little black smoke clouds i think. Maybe 20m altitude?

That was about my best guess too, but to the best of my knowledge and reading the EFP becomes ineffective within a few metres - hence most HEAT rounds having on the order of a few inches between the trigger and the warhead proper.

It's been around since the late 1980's under the name SADARM

I knew of the SADARM, but I had no idea of the EFP range! 152m, if wiki is to believed - either there's a fundamental evolution between my understanding and practice, or I've managed to simply misunderstand something 0.o

Heavier slugs? They're made of copper i think, of which there is a fair amount.
