The battle-proven 81mm Mortar delivers accurate HE, Smoke or Illuminating rounds out to a range of 5650m. The 81mm Mortar can be man-packed in three loads, but mortar detachments now days are normally vehicle-borne. Mortar platoons in armoured Infantry battalions are mounted in - and can fired from armoured vehicles increasing the mortars mobility and speed into and out of action. The 81mm mortar provides an Infantry battalion with its own indirect fire support.
