    Default Help with WW1 bomb identification.

    Greetings to all,

    I would like to bring to your attention this aircraft bomb, probably dating back to the First World War.
    It is a bomb of the class of 10-12 kg.

    Overall lenght: 420 mm
    Body lenght: 320 mm
    Max body diameter: 110 mm
    Tail span: 140 mm
    Arming vane span: 90 mm

    The tail is dark green color and traces of the same color are also on the body.
    There are traces of red paint on the end of the body at the tail level.

    The device is completely inert.

    I was not able to identify neither the model nor the nationality.
    Could you help me to identify this ordnance, please?

    Many Thanks
