Submunitions are some wicked little explosive devices!  Designed to cover a wide area and defeat convoy's or take out enemy troops in the open.  The BLU (Blue) - 97 has a reputation for being one of the scariest among EOD Techs and one of the sexiest to scrappers, due to its aluminum and copper make up! 

Enjoy a tasty beverage on the go out of tumbler, a unique rendition and homage to the BLU-97!

This is the American BLU-97 (Bomb Live Unit), a cylindrical-shaped high-explosive (HE) dual-purpose shaped-charge submunition with a conical-shaped cloth Air Inflated Decelerator (AID). It is designed for use against armored targets such as tanks or APCs and unprotected personnel in the open. The submunition's outer body is sheet steel painted bright yellow. The steel inner fragmentation sleeve is internally grooved to produce optimum fragmentation. The fabric Air Inflated Decelerator (AID) is cloth and is either white or olive green in color. The BLU-97 is designed to function on direct impact with a hard target but there is a secondary inertia impact mechanism, which functions if the submunition hits the soft ground. It is used in the CBU-87 dispenser, which houses 202 BLU-97 and the AGM-154 JSOW which houses 145 BLU-97 submunitions.

Love the Mug!

The scratches and weathering really make it nifty!

BLU-97

The design is awesome however the lid is less to be desired. The opening barely trickles out any fluid and also doesn’t vent. I’m currently trying to find a replacement lid that will work better.
