Description

The 81-mm mortar is an indirect fire support weapon. It has the tactical advantage of a high trajectory, which allows it to be sighted and engage targets from behind cover and provide overhead support to friendly troops.

The mortar consists of a monobloc steel barrel with a smooth bore. The supported barrel in the bipod mount allows it to elevate, depress and cross the mortar within specified limits.
