    So not rly part of the OP but i have found some more clues on the 500 kg brandbomb.
    The Saab 24 was aparently gonna have a 500 kg brandbomb as part of its possible bombload. The Saab 24 was cancelled in 1943/44 but looking at the pic they probablty started doing tests on this bomb.

    Thanks for the info, Blockhaj. Another question - by looking at the color blueprint of the 12kg Sprangbomb one can see that 3 different detonators were used (with different color band to differenciate between them: no band, white band, red band, green band) - probably immediate impact, short delay, long delay, longer delay Do you have data on their delays?

    These photos were posted quite a time ago by Fjord House on this forum, looking for identification:

    weet niet 025.jpg weet niet 029.jpgweet niet 033.jpg

    it seem to be this same bomb as this elusive 500kg Swedish brandbomb of the 40s developped for the Saab 24.
