Even if you dig up a shit-ton of muh realistic documentation, how are you going to fit realism with the game abstraction?
It is not that realism will auto-magically make cluster bombers useful but balanced.

It is all about "what I pay" and "to kill what".

Take a 100pt cluster bombers, what should it be able to kill? Set AP accordingly.

i really liked the way that cluster destroyed the light armored vehicules and scared the infantry the first time they were introduced...

I think they could regain better flavour by upgrading this way as NATO having more of those would have some burratinos/HE rockets effects as a bombing run could be use as ground preparation of attacks at render defenders less effective as well as destroiyed close ground support.

MiG 29m is wonderful cluster bomber. Only problem with clusters is they have no effect besides moral on infantry, Maybe if clusters left a lasting impression maybe, after Russia used clusters in Syria I would not think a bit more AOE for clusters would suddenly make Everyone use them.

making them HE/AP hybrid like the the beta would make them a lot more useful and intresting. They wouldn't be as good against tank as atgm and wouldn't be good against infantry as HE bombs, but the would be versatile.

I believe they were so good they become anti-anything on the ground.

I dunno man, turning the F-111 into a 12 Mjolnir Viggen sounds perfectly fine to me :lol: :lol:

A long range bk90 would be more balanced than smerch or atacms so I don't really see any problems.
