Description:
This bomb is of cylindrical construction and may be charged with Tritonal, TNT, Comp B, or 50-50 Amatol. The primary difference between the M65 and M65A1 is that the M65A1 is fitted with a single lifting lug located opposite of the standard dual lifting lugs. If the Navy uses the bomb, it may be fitted with a trunnion band, M2A1. This bomb may be fitted with conical or box fins or with a parachute retarding unit. These will affect the overall length of the bomb; the length of bomb listed below is for the bomb without a tail assembly. The bomb is painted Olive Drab with Yellow bands around the nose and Tail indicating the filler: one for Amatol or TNT, two for Comp B, and three for Tritonal.
