    Pay attention that the bombs inside are only the models collected at the Spanish Aviation Museum - I thought to buy this leaflet a few years ago (its digital version costs only a few euros) but some further checks made clear that it has no more info - and possibly less) as what is already available on the site www.ammonio.es (sadly no longer updated but still accessible)

    Meanwhile, I uploaded in the download section the notice "Bombas - Catalogo de Municiones - Calse D -Madrid 1948"
    The models of bombs figuring in this notice are also relevant for the GCE and throw even some light on their original German an Italian models.
    As usual It will be available in a couple of days after authorization by the moderator.

    A few pictures from the original catalog of "Talleres de Gernica" (undated - early 1930 period) showing the main models of bombs of Spanish design used in the GCE (some models - the A5 and A6 - being copied by the Talleres Mercier in Burgos, producing these bombs for the Nationalist side)

    Here are some photographs of the main Spanish designed bombs used in initial part of the GCE

    (the Puw and Carbonit clones were produced by the company Experiencias Industriales in Aranjuez) The bombs designated C- are chemical bombs.
