81 MM LIGHT TOWED MORTAR

MIN 81 Mortar with 81mm HE mortar bomb can operate in the firing range from 100 m to 6700 m. The low weight of the mortar allows it to be transported on carriers by 3 members of crew. For transport over longer distances, the mortar is situated on a two-wheeled chassis that can be pulled behind a light off-road vehicle or carried on a medium off-road vehicle along with ammunition.

Its low weight and compactness increases its mobility in the terrain and allows rapid change of firing position only by crew members. For use at night and in limited visibility, the mortar is equipped with a lighting set for sight and crew.
