    Could that be that it's not a bomb at all? Is it maybe a mixed load container? see pictures!

    I wonder it doesnt say brandbomb so im just guessing that Nitrolit, the explosive used during this time, was a fuel like substance.

    It's quite possible that it is a Nitrolit loaded bomb - the question remains which bomb.
    However the legend of the bomb in the Nowegian museum mention a central firing pipe tube that is consistent with a fire bomb
    Fusse - the Michlastbehalter 250 was definitively different and it was only an external envelope into which one could put various stuff, including small cylinders containing liquids - but it was impossible to fill it directly. And the tail unit was completely different.

    The Swedish Flyvapnet used already in 1942 a drop container but it was rather different:

    Blockhaj, would you have a drawing and dimensions of this container?

    Ok so after actually thinking rationally its possible again that the bomb is not a 250 kg minbomb. This is due to it having a spetsrör "nose fuze" which was only adopted on the m/50 series of bombs. So unless this is a 250 kg minbomb m/50 then this is in fact a previously unknown 500 kg bomb. The m/50 series of bombs were mostly used on the A 21A and A 32A planes. I need to check what carriages they used for bombs.

    There was in fact a Spetsror M42 so it may be this one?

    The earlier spetsror had the characteristic look of the Bofors fuses.

    Spetsor M41

    Do you have data on these fuses (instant, delay and how much delay) ?

    Spetsrör existed but was not used on the 250 kg minbomb m/37 or 40 which were the bombs i originally thought this was since it was meant for the b 3. And there is data for it in the papers i sent, although i didnt photograph the blueprints of them due to memory shortage on muh phone.

    Blockhaj, I understand. By looking at the drawings you sent, I see that ww2 period's 50-240-500kg minbombs did not have a nose pocket for such a fuse. So even if the fuse existed it could not be used on them.

    Blu97 on the left is the bomb we discuss (first post) and on the right is a mischlastabwurf behalter (Michlastbehalter 250) shown in your the drawings you uploaded:
    032ynU6smZdp.jpg images Abwurfbehälter .jpg
    The rear cone, fins and reinforcing ring are specific to Swedish bombs. The body of the Michlastbehalter is also quite different from a bomb body on such close views as these photos are.
