Thanks, Grzesio

It is difficult to appreciate the real size in this image....

Hi all,

An image from Ebay: italian bombs. I think Bomba 100-T (on ground) and 50-T (on soldier`s shoulders). Is this correct ?

I think so too. :)

Image 2: Probably... SC500....

If you look closely at the inscriptions at their bodies, they are SC 500 L2. ;)
It's also interesting to note, how the yellow stripe is reproduced in the BW photo against the background body colour, which can be silver in this case, I think.

These seem to be Prussian PuW bombs in 300, 100 and 12,5 kg sizes. Some were still in use in 1939, e.g. in Poland.

Thanks a lot for your quick reply, Grzesio. :wink:
I think you are right but....I think the medium size bomb in my images is maybe an 50Kg model instead an 100kg...

Here another image from Ebay... taken in Poland according to photocaption... :wink:

You can be right... However, it's hard to tell from the photos, I think both 50 kg (or 70 kg) and 100 kg variants can be present in them. Sadly, I have no reliable references at hand.

The last picture is obviously taken in Poland, showing a 300 kg PuW bomb and a PZL.37 B medium bomber.
