    Argentinian Produced Bombs 1930-60s IPMA DGFM

    Some interesting developments took place in Argentina starting from the late 30s.
    The DGFM produced pressed carboard training bombs:

    The IPMA produced a full range of HE, Frag and incendiary bombs that remained in use till the late sixties - the fin arrangement of the Frag bombs was quite original:

    These are the 13kg Frag, the 50kg frag and the 250kg HE

    The only remaining IPMA bomb seems to be a 250kg HE displayed at the Argentinian National Museum of Aviation - the display is made still more interesting by the bomb standing aside this one, a German SC 250 (though small numbers of German bombs are known to have been delivered to Brazil in 1938, there is such mention for Argentina, though a lot German warfare material was delivered to them in the years preceding ww2 - It seems that Aerial bombs were part of the lot).

    Other details on these bombs and their fuzes would be welcome
