Lots of info on US Army and Navy bombs and fuzes from WWII. On a thread somewhere I read that the USN had very few or perhaps no AP bombs at the start of the war. On the otherhand apparently the Army did. I'm not sure if they shared stocks or not. Note that a memory of mine on something I've read somewhere is also not a very good source.

Anything with an "A/N" number was used by Army and Navy. Others were shared if a delivery vehicle from one service had the right equipment to carry and deliver the bomb. Sorry, no specifics on that, it's been a while since I looked into "crossdecked" equipment.
