Would agree that image 1 is a 1000kg size, but I can't decide on what it is from the photo, it's not clear.

Image 2 are SC50's

Image 3 I'd agree with you on them being SC250kg with that bracing on the tail fins.

Photo 1 could be PC1000 or SB1000.

Definately NOT SC1000 Hermann or the AB1000 incendiary container...

Thank you for your answer, Simon.

Yes, it is difficult to identify exactly from this angle. I bet most by SB1000. A drawing of a SB1000 bomb:

Hi Dili and thanks, :D

I knew the first two links. Very good information but there are very few images to compare.
It is very difficult for me differenciate between some bombs.

I don´t think they´re japanese as they don´t fit with any drawings of japanese aerial bombs I know. IMO they are captured, especially as the weight is written on them. I think the 4 lower characters are "aerial bomb". The weights are (from left to right):

300 kg
1000 kg
100 kg
(not readable)
50 kg

I assume they are of chinese origin.

Yours

tom! :wink:

Image 1 is an SC1200, you can clearly see the kopfring attached to the nose.

Image 2 do indeed look like SC250 with the tell tale tail fin braces.
