    SD1 Bomblet German WW2

    This is the German WW2 1Kg SD1 Bomblet.Please feel free to add more info and pictures .The following Information was provided by Ammodillo in a now deleted previous topic on the SD1
    "In the beginning the SD-1 was a 1 Kg mortar round/bomb that is adapted to submunitions/bomblets for disturbing road convoys.
    there are only two documented basic types of the SD-1 bomblet.
    That is the Frz (Franzosisch) that means French, and the Standard German SD-1.
    For recognition purposes there is a significant difference in meassurements (length) and the fuze threading used. The French SD-1 has very fine thread where the German SD-1 has 'normal' thread to receive the AZ73 fuzes.
