Abstract:

The information contained in this handbook presents all available information up to date of publication on all the known bombs and fuzes in the Italian Service. The work is divided into three parts. In the first part a general description of the various types of missiles dropped from the air is given and the classification is based ultimately upon methods to be adopted in handling unexploded bombs, which in turn depends upon the types of fuses and the method of arming. The second part consists of a summary of bombs and fuzes intended for easy reference while the third part contains detailed information of all known bombs and their fuses with illustrations produced, in most cases, after an examination of the missiles themselves. All measurements are given in the English and in the metric systems.
