    The British 4 lb Incendiary was adopted by the USAAF in WW2 as the AN-M50 series and AN-M54 series 4 lb and later AN-M69 6 lb Incendiaries. They were used in vast quantities over Japan.

    Perhaps this is interesting for the topic.

    A color drawing of R.A.F. 4 lbs I.B made by U.N.P.A. of Milan, around late 1940 - beginning of 1941.

    U.N.P.A. means "Unione Nazionale Protezione Antiaerea", and was the most known italian organisation for the passive protection against the dangers caused by air bombing. (an organisation like the german "Luftshutz").

    Why were the 4lb Incendiaries hexagonal? Was there any particular reason or was magnesium alloy hex bar just what was available at the time?
