* There are canisters that when detonated, scatter flechettes over a wide area. The flechettes were designed to attack infantry in the open and light armored vehicles. The modern variant of this uses a modern cluster bomb [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CBU-107_Passive_Attack_Weapon The CBU-107]] loaded with flechettes of various sizes. These are used against power stations and antenna farms as they cause minimal collateral damage compared to explosives.

* In some ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' book or another, it's stated that Mon Calimari Cruisers have "bomb blisters" - bubbles on the hull that look like just another Mon Cal hull bubble, but explode for decent backblast and a hailstorm of starfighter-shredding shrapnel. Good tactic for a rebel/New Republic starfighter pilot: drag a squadron of baddies across this and have the cruiser set it off just as you pass out of range.
