does anyone know the colour of German bombs used in WW2?
www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org - Luftwaffe Resource Center - Bomb Annex
It gives some pretty good information. Sky Blue is generally taken as RLM65.
Edit: the can of worms....the current internet wisdom is that most ordnance was a dark grey,maybe RLM66,but that doesn't tally with contemporary evidence. I have,somewhere,a photo of a Ju88 being bombed up for a night mission. The visible bombs are clearly a light colour(like rlm65) on top and have had the lower half very crudely painted in a dark (presumably black) colour to match the lower surface night camouflage on the aircraft.
