    Hi Mr. jvollenbergIf
    you have photos of other fuse or bombs of Czech production, I will help you by determining their pattern or year of construction.
    PS: Fuse of picture - government property ?

    @Chris
    Yes , 50 kg or 100 kg of period 1918-1945. There were a large number, of types of bombs and fuse: serial, experimental or export ....more than just ,,Skoda,, production.
    The export versions were different from the versions for the Air Force.
    Give specific photos and I'll try to identify them.

    Akon - could you identify these bombs and give some details (diemnsions, weights, explosive content, fuze):
    The first photograph is from 1927
    1927 air bombs (50 kg and 20 kg possibly) he669.jpg
    similar bombs are in a Prague Museum

    and this one which I understand was a smoke air-dropped bomb - photo from 1936:

    The last version of these fuses were patented in July 1939 - A German patent, as Czechoslovakia had been erased following the Munich agreements of 1938 and its main parts (Bohemia and Moravia) annexed by Germany, while Slovakia became a German puppet state .

    Hi Dreamk 1.foto (Air force, military airfeld Milovice

    Skoda construction (pictured left).
    Manufacturer Škoda, delivered to the Air Force in 1924, serial design.
    The body is 3-piece: lower part, connecting ring and upper part, closing ring (in the middle of the cylindrical part there are 8 rivets and one stud) + stabilization: it consists of several parts also connected by riveting.
    Body diameter: 179.8mm
    Overall length: 1665mm

    The photo shows a bomb without a fuse (the screw is screwed in).
    Bombs paint: black body paint / stencil red (sharp bombs)?
    Suspension system: fa. Avie, suspended under the bombsrack, pitch 820mm between the "front handle" and "rear carrying eye" ia .... in 1923 the company Avie delivered 500 pieces of hangers for bombs 50-150 kg. In 1926, the suspension system was modified (by company Pantofl) to a central suspension suspension with an eye .... the bombs had a new design.

    ,,Tříštivá letecká bomba 100kg ,,

    Context: In 1924,
    in reality, the Air Regiments 1, 2, 3, Air Training School had at their disposal: (ie in ammunition depots), Air bombs, 10 kg, 20 kg, 50, kg, 100 kg, 150 kg (standard version) + in addition, there were already produced experimental samples of smal pices 500 kg
    ( (Training) Cement air bombs 10kg-150 kg (serial). School air bombs 10 kg, 20, kg, 50 kg, 100 kg, 150 kg. 50 kg and 200 kg piercing bombs (equipped with two different lighters) were also tested and used experimentally. 3/4 Sections of aircraft bombs and fuse: see weights for weights above. For teaching, the army had illustrations and posters of air bombs and fuse and a suspension system (an edition consisting of 8 posters for teaching armorers). Furthermore, school "stands" for suspension systems for teaching armorers for practical suspension of bombs + wooden models of bombs with weights, see above. In addition, already in 1924, construction work and throwing from the plane on other types of air bombs began: incendiary, smoke, chemical, container (with fragmentation bombs), etc. In the following years, of course, the situation with the material changes and the number of air ammunition increases ...
