This photo shows an Albacore carrying at least 3 bombs (assuming they are carrying a matching load out on the opposite wing), but the main article for the Albacore says that it carried either 1 x 760 torpedo or 1 x 900kg bomb. Is there a mistake in the armament specs?

Roy Keyes: Thanks for the great catch. That particular text has now been corrected to say "900kg of bombs".
