US Bomb, 100 lb Incendiary, Mk 1
The bomb is of three piece sheet steel construction, with a hemispherical nose piece and a conical tail cone welded to a tubular body. The bomb has two suspension lugs on bands or a single lug on a band near the center of gravity. The tail assembly consists of four sheet-steel vanes welded to tail cone, which, in turn, is welded to the body.
The bomb is painted grey over all, with a bright red disc, four inches in diameter, in the middle of the body.
This bomb is similar to the 100 pound Incendiary Bomb AN-M47A2, except that it is equipped with a filler cap. Both bombs are prone to leak and should be examined frequently.
