    The Heads were universal , but i would say that is correct , i have one which is from a Dornier , but cannot prove it , without going into a restored aircraft .the JU87 carried i think 1X 500 kg bomb stowed externally
    Picture 3 is showing an Fuze Extension cap these were used in the SC bombs that had the fuze pockets deep inside the bomb , which would not allow the normal fuze charger to clip on , there were 3 types , Type 1 , 11,,111 each was slightly shallower than the next
    In the same picture is the ledenkorp which was used for containers etc its missing its bakelite base and external wires.
