The AN-M30A1 (100 lb) is an American general-purpose high explosive (HE) bomb.

The AN-M30A1 is an air-dropped bomb which utilises a combination of blast damage, penetration and fragmentation during its explosive effect. Typically the general-purpose bombs are used when targeting either enemy troops, vehicles and buildings.

The AN-M30A1 utilises two types of fuses to detonate the bomb with the nose fuse which is the main fuse and the one in the tail as a backup.

General-purpose bombs are aerodynamic in shape and have stabilising fins to enable accurate drop locations when sighted, targeted and released by a bombardier. The aerodynamic effect also benefits aircraft which carry the bombs on external payload pylons.*

Brengun has now produced a set of ten 1/48 scale US GP 100lb AN-M30A1 Bombs.

The bodies of the bombs are cast in grey coloured resin.



The tails and fuse propellers are supplied in nickel-plated photo-etch.



A nice touch is the inclusion of decals. These provide yellow rings and stencil markings.



Recommended to any modeller who wants to add bombs to their US WWII project.
