    ID small bomb (Finnish winter war)

    Hello,

    Does anyone could identify this small bomb (looks like russian). Maybe I have it in my doc but can't find it.
    The website says "young Finnish soldier holding a small incendiary bomb"

    Regards

    Hello,

    Yes, it's ZAB-1E. I send photos of this bomb used in the Civil War in Spain too.

    Cheers

    I have in collection one inert bomb, with original fuze, made in 1938. On other size reads XB3 and other side P( cyriilic) N13.

    Actually I have another one, made in 1939. Marking is XB3 and other side PN8.

    Many of these bombs in Winter War did not work. Russians used thick grease in propeller thread and in cold air the propeller safety did not screw out.

    I have these 1938 dated fuses in bound to me. It is my understanding they are AGDT-B. Can anyone confirm the model number or show documentation on them? Thank you.
