    Akon Hi!
    Thanks a lot! This is really great informative data.
    Am I correct in identifying the following bombs as (from left to right) 50 kg vz. 34, 100 kg vz. 34 and 200 kg vz. 34
    Have you more details on these bombs?

    Hi Dreamk
    Yes, you have the kg/,,vzor,, okay
    For interest, where do you get these cutouts of the drawings?

    Hi Akon

    I found these pictures in a Czech military modelling forum: https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=310&t=57385.
    They appeared also (but in quite bad quality) in a Czech/English booklet on Letov (or Avia?) airplanes (I have not these books underhand to check) and the legend attributed their origin to the "S. Mikolas collection"

    Would you have more details on these bombs: real weight, nature and weight of explosive, fuse delays?

    And details and picture of the 500kg bomb in this series (only a handful were produced)

    I assess that these are 10kg vz.37 (the reinforcing struts between the fins of the 20kg vz. 34 were wider and had a middle inverted ridge for reinforcement) and but their fuze looks somehow strange - Akon what do you think?

    foto :
    These are museum unsuitable dummies that produced a photograph of a suspended plane for visitors. I have met several such traps in various quality and design. We also have bombs under the plane in the military museum and they are very bad dummies. Therefore, you have no problem with identification. ,,10kg tříštivá puma vz.37,, never existed in that be sure. There are a lot of details that do not match. But the first aluminum body of the hood was never .... and the same fuse was never aluminum. The shape of the hood and the strip is also fiction ...

    PS : I will describe the others later. to bombs vz.34 in the next situation around 500 kg of bombs will be described later.
