Hi Pamagiotis,
I'm not sure, but looks likely.

Hi Massimo,

Just a clarification..
A ptab-2 container and a Small bombs cassette (KMB) are the same thing?
Thanks,
Panagiotis

Hi Panagiotis,
a bomblet container? The text says that they were discontinued  on late planes, and the bomblets were loaded directly into the bays from above.
Regards
Massimo
Hi Massimo,
You're right as always, truth is I didn't read the text. I'll see what I can do with the container. Wait for a bunch of wip photos to comment on them.
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Massimo,
Thanks a lot for the ref photos. They are very helpful. At the moment I'm scratching a PTAB-2 container. As it seems I'll have to guess where the holes to the bomb bay would be. I'll stick to the marked ones I posted in the photo in my previous post. I've found Yandex.ru is a great help for my read-up.😊
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
this is a page of Il-2 Shturmovik of Viktor Povinsky.
You can see how the bomb is connected to the wire.


You can also see images of the open bays full of bomblets.

Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
Here's the same device on a Il-2



while it looks a bit different on a Su-2



Perhaps the two holes are those marked below



and two visnaps





Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
I think to see two small holes under the wheels and the wire going into them. Probably it makes a loop under the bomb.
The plane in the photo is an Il-10.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
Another question for you. Here's the photo.



As far as I know it's a device used to hoist bombs onto the bomb bay. What I don't know is how the rope-or the wire- of this device was connected to the bomb itself. Should there not be an open bomb bay cover just below the cockpit? I may sound naive but I intend to show the device and the hoisting wire in my cutaway project.
Cheers,
Panagiotis.
