It's a FAB-100 sv mod. 1932. Soviets had no 300 kg class bombs and their heavier bombs were much slimmer.

These three of silver colour are ZAB-2,5-1 incendiaries, 1.5 kg heavy bombs made of electron. The darker bombs in the background are AO-2,5sch fragmentation bombs. Judging from the lack of arming vanes on the fuzes, they are intended for use in dispensers or cluster bombs.

Yes, they are SC 50. And it seems, this marking scheme, with just big serial (?) numbers was using during the Spanish war.

Flam C 250 of course. ;)
A red ring visible on the body, as well as a filling cap between the fuse pockets are also distinctive for an incendiary bomb.
