    Ab 70-1

    Good morning all,


    I am looking for documentations with Germans containers such as the AB-70, 70-1, 70 D1, 70-4, 70-5.
    There are many contradictory documents ... How are they arranged, what ammunition are inside, do you have any information and diagrams?
    Thank you in advance, and happy new year !

    Thank you for these diagrams.
    I was talking about contradiction ...
    Look for the position of the fuze

    Here two pictures I found about AB-70 and AB-70-3

    AB-70 is a conventional German container construction. It can be fuzed with one or two fuzes. In case of two fuzes, the first top above, receive the command of the bomber and with a delay, give the command on the nose inside fuze. This fuze will open the container and so permit the dispersion of the payload. (Attention, on the first pic, the AB-70 is upside down !) (Pictures are coming from the Wolfgang Fleischer's book "German air-dropped weapons to 1945"). In case of one fuze, this fuze receive the command of the bomber and, after a delay, open the container.
    All the AB70 have not the same shape and functioning. Look at AB70-3, completely different than AB70 "classic" !


    AB70-1 : 3 flares Mark S
    AB70-3 : 22 SD2
    AB70-4B : 40 SD1
    AB70-4C : 50 SD1
    AB70-5 : 23 SD2

    Hi
    On the first draw, the fuze is on front and there is a ladenkopf.
    On the second picture, the fuze is not at the front. No ladenkopf.
    But with the marking it's the same ...
