The Butterfly Bomb, or SD2, was a 2kg anti-personnel submunition used by the Luftwaffe during WWII. Each individual SD2 contained 225g of TNT — the bomb was generally lethal at 10m and could inflict serious injuries as far as 100m.
The SD2 was one of the first cluster bombs to be used in combat, and it proved to be very effective.
wehrmachtinternetmuseum even has a couple nifty parts from an SD2!
