US Bomb, 150 lb GP, T1

 

1678-053

Description

This bomb was developed for use as a substitute to alleviate a temporary shortage of 100 lb GP bombs.

The bomb body consists of a modified M70 chemical bomb loaded with TNT. The nose has been machined to accommodate an adapter for alternate fuzing. There is no provision for the installation of a tail fuze. Because the bomb was unstable in flight when filled with TNT, the tail unit of the 260 lb. fragmentation bomb, AN-M81, is used instead of the standard M70 tail.
