    The Lazy Dog concept was developed for use in Vietnam, one canister load was 2.75" rocket war heads fuzed to explode on contact, another was bomblets that were random fuzed, and still another was a canister full of the .45 cal projectiles seen in the post above. When properly utilized, the canister would open at about 5.000' and would put a projectile in every foot of an acre size area. Deadly stuff! Not used much to my knowledge.
