  1. I have been wanting to ask this question for a long time. And, yes, I know that RLM 70, 66, and 02 were used for most with RLM 76 also used. But for which bombs and types? Were armor-piercing, painted a different color(s) than high explosives? And others were painted what colors? Back in the '70s there was a magazine in the USA(can't remember the name) which published an article about bombs used by the USAAF/USAF/USN and the USMC. It said the colors for the main explosive(OD and Yellow band)) and the colors used to show the type(HE, practice, etc.). It is a system that was started in the WW1 time and still in force. And, is extended to the munitions used by the US Army as well as the US Navy(the 16 inch HC(high explosive) rounds are OD with a Yellow band). The article also had silhouettes of the bombs used. I have not seen a similar article for any of the Air Forces used by the Allies or Axis services; or for any used in the Cold War and modern period. I believe that this is good information to tell others. Thanks Joe
