The Longbow Orbital Bombardment Cluster Bomb, also known as the LOBCB, was a type of ordinance utilized by the United Nations Space Command between 2544 and 2623, matching similarly long service careers of other UNSC weapons. As its name shows, the Longbow is dropped from orbit or high altitude within an atmosphere at a ground target. At a predetermined height, dozens of smaller bombs break apart and deal moderate damage to an acre-sized area.
