Mo 120 MM RT /

 

 

 

The original BRANDT mortar design was improved in the 1970s with the adoption of a rifled tube — similar to the technology used by howitzers — in order to deliver added precision

Today, the 120 mm Rifled Towed (RT) mortar is the only system of its type in service throughout the world. Initially developed to equip French infantry fire support platoons, the 120 rifled mortar created a new class of weapons designated "heavy mortars" and was quickly recognised for its performance, widely considered equivalent to that of a 155 mm artillery system.
