I have no reliable references on Italian bombs, I just think, the big ones are 1000 kg HE, while the small ones are 12 kg frag ("Mtr" type).

Image 2 - just a WAG, with no references at hand: the two bombs at the front are clearly of the SD type (a division line between actual warhead and the tail fairing can be clearly seen at their bodies) - and so I'd say there are two SD 250 and the remaining are SC 250.

I'm no expert on planes, but what gives this away as belonging to Legion Condor?
The torpedo appears to have a late 30's warhead/pistol (might be a LT F5a).

They are incendiaries, as can be recognized by red rings at their bodies. The one at the left is the Flam C 250 B or C, sadly the rest puzzle me with their white noses, but they are of the Brand or Flam type too... 8O
