SD 50 of course. ;) Division line between actual warhead and sheet metal rear section can be clearly seen on their bodies.

The chacteristic shape of look of the landing gear allows to identify this Romanian aircraft as either an IAR-37 or an IAR-39.
The bombracks included in the lower wing; similar as the ones used on the PZL are also very typical.
The bombload of the IAR-37 was 12 x 50 kg, and of the IAR-39 24x12kg.
These bombs could be 50kg PuW of Polish origin - I don's see in the Romanian bomb inventory of the period wht else they could be - though there is some slight variation on the rear edge of the fins that let me uneasy with a definitive identification.

It's a SC 250 Stabo, intended for low level attacks at railway tracks etc, the spike prevented the bomb from ricochetting. It seems, the tail cone is yellow, so probably 1940.

12kg Bofors Sprangbomb (=Fragmentation), in service from 1931 onward, also widely used by the Finns in 1939-40 and in the Continuation war (on Blenheim, Fokker CX, Hart etc...)
