Mainly high explosive aircraft bombs and incendiary bombs. The biggest conventional (High explosive) bomb was a British made 22,000lb “Grand Slam” A Lancaster bomber stripped down could just get off the ground carrying one bomb in a specially adapted bomb bay In WW1 the bombs were normally dropped by hand from biplanes by the observer or pilot, these were very small, rarely above 10kg as they had to be lifted over the edge of the cockpit and aimed by eye.
