    First BLG I've seen in this site so far! It's quite funny, the nomenclature for these things is "Bomba Lança-Granadas", lit. "Grenade Launching Bomb". Guess cluster bombs are grenades in Brazilian Air Force terminology, lol.

    There are some other interesting weapons developed at the CTA like the BAPI anti-runway bomb and the BINC-300 incendiary canisters but I believe these are only used in "high-performance aircraft", so the F-5EM and AMX A-1/A-1M in FAB inventories. For FAB Super Tucanos, Skyfire-70 rockets (used with common NATO launcher pods, usually LAU-51s) and MAA-1 Piranhas (externally virtiually identical to AIM-9Bs in most versions but with performance comparable to AIM-9Es or Ls depending on the version... and information source, which is scarce) are classic loadout options, which you should definitely keep in mind if you want to make a FAB version of it. Sadly they don't see much guided bomb use here, usually it's rockets and the BAFG-230 (Mk. 82 equivalent) bombs.

    I really like how it turned out, and you used less parts than I'd expect for such a bomb! Really nice work.
