I'd say SD 500.
PC 1000 looks very similarly too, I just think this kind of a suspension lug was not used on bombs heavier than 500 kg.

SD 50 of course. ;) Notice, the actual warhead actually occupies some 2/3 of the body length and the rest is formed by a sheet metal fairing and the division line is clearly visible.
