Default Is this an SC-10 or and SD-10, and which model?

Hey Guys,


I recently picked up this Luftwaffe bomb and need help identifying which model it really is. The deal sold it as an SD-10, but I am not so sure that is correct. There are no markings to be found on the casing, other than "07" on the bottom.

These three examples are shown in the "German Explosive Ordnance" manual I have, and there is similarity with the SC-10 Concrete bomb, but other than the fuze, it is also similar to the two types of SD-10A's shown.

This SC10 bzw was also posted on another thread by Klarkon, and there are similarities here too, but my casing is one smooth level inside, it does not have the "step" below the fuze thread like this diagram shows. Or is that "step" only in the explosive material?

Your bomb is SC-10 if it has a bomb fuze type AZC 10(hut).
If it has the same bomb fuze type eAZ (66) then is it SD-10.............

The bomb's body is unusual, not found on any German drawing.

So the body was basically the same for the SC10 and the SD10A (as stated where you underlined above on the SD10A page)? The wall was thick on both of them, unlike the different wall thicknesses on the SC50 versus the SD50.

It is only the missing "stepped" inner wall that makes it different, correct? Maybe it is an earlier version?

Thanks. I wish I could find a date on it, that might help solve the mystery.
