    Great pictures Steve,
    Was this bomb the same as a Henschel HS293?,i always thought that the Roma was the first victim of the HS?

    Sd1400x

    Hi Paul i put the wrong designation it should have read SD1400X not FX now modified,I can confirm in 1943 the Italian battleship Roma was sunk with one of these bombs also HMS Warspite .
    cheers
