Next up is a Lad V C250 (ladevorrichtung) which was used for mounting and charging an SC-250 aerial bomb in the fuselage of a bomber. The Lad V C250 was attached to the outside of the vertical bomb magazine or E.S.A.C. 250 X (Electrische Senkrecht Aufhangung für C-bomben).

The second picture shows how the Lad V C250 would have been attached to the two fuzes mounted inside the casing of the SC-250 bomb.

The first picture shows the Lad V C250 mounted to the outside of the E.S.A.C. 250 X.

The second picture shows a row of E.S.A.C. 250 X bomb magazines inside the fuselage of a bomber.

My third example is a Lad V 2C50. This "arming vein" would have been mounted on the outside of a E.S.A.C. 250/ IX. This combination of vertical bomb magazine and charger was versatile enough to be used for either one SC-250 bomb, or two SC-50 bombs. This was the configurations as used in the HE-111 bomber.

The second picture gives an idea of the flexibility of the Lad V 2C50. Because the arms were able to swivel, they could be attached to two fuzes in one SC-250 bomb, or the single fuze in two SC-50 bombs.

Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of the Lad V 2C50 in use, and it really does not show very much of it.
