An adaptable and versatile indirect fire support solutions, offering long range with high precision and great operational efficiency.
Since the times of Edgar Brandt, the founder of Thales Mortar activity, thousands of mortars of different calibres and millions of mortar shells were delivered to many different armed forces. Thales mortar systems are mature and combat proven solutions, which incorporate modern industrial technology.
Mortars have long been an important part of the Defense ground-based fire support concept. These relatively short-range, steep-sided weapons allow ground units to deliver rapid and accurate fire on the enemy. The current armament contains a whole range of mortars, traditionally derived from the idea that each level, platoon, company, battalion, has its own fire support. Today Mortar systems continue to play a key role on the battlefield, facing to the return of high intensity warfare, infantry battalion need to have organic indirect heavy fire with 120mm mortar.
Thales has a long-term experience of 120 mm rifled mortar system that bring interoperability within combined arms units’ frontline. This 120mm mortar is very robust and reliable in harsh environments, is very mobile, and is helicopter transportable and air droppable.
