I don't have my books at hand, but Internet says, the He 111 could carry up to 3600 kg on external suspensions.

So how could it carry three SC 1000 or two SC 1800, as e.g. the He 111 H-11 Flugzeug Handbuch shows? 8O

Hi, confronting the dimension of the bombs with the man standing behind them, the bigger bombs seems

Bomba 50-T (torpedine)
Demolition bomb, soft targets, explosion above ground with splinters projection
Overall length: 103 mm (40 inch)
Weight: 59.13 Kg
Explosive: 29.2 kg

while the smaller bomb at the right seems

Bomba 15 M (Mina)
Demolition bomb, harder target (factories, buildings), fuze with a short delay to explode inside target
Overall length: 78.8 cm (31 inch)
Weight: 15.5 kg
Explosive: 5.6 kg

BTW, the aircraft is a S-79 Sparviero of 253a Squadriglia and the script on the bombs (Buon Natale) means "Merry Christmas". So it is extremely likely that the picture is taken at the end of December 1941 when 253a Squadriglia was operating from Scutari airfield in Albania during the war against Grece.

Bye

Thank you very much for your answer, Temistocle. :wink:
I have seen very few wartime images of Italian bombs...
