Different times with respect to collateral damage, but you could loft 8 x cheap air-burst Ks and easily achieve utter carnage at the target. We could also drop cluster munitions too, so a single aircraft could wreak havoc.

Precision has its place but it should not have become as all-consuming as it has. Watching a successful Brimstone hit slicing through a car, before some of the occupants opened doors and exited with little more than tinnitus, suggests that surgical strikes can sometimes be too clinical.
