Types of Cluster Munitions in Global Stockpiles

Cluster munitions are stockpiled by at least 76 states and have been used in at least 31 countries and disputed territories. A total of 34 states are known to have produced over 210 different types of air-dropped, surface-launched, or submarine-launched cluster munitions including projectiles, bombs, rockets, missiles, and dispensers. This reference chart is organized by type of cluster munition and indicates which states stockpile them. It is not intended to be a complete accounting of stockpiles, and Human Rights Watch welcomes any clarifications, corrections, or updates from state representatives.
