Mortar technology by Rheinmetall
Setting the standard for precision and range
Faced with a wider mission spectrum, today’s armed forces require reconnaissance, C4I and firepower capabilities that are versatile and responsive, combining outstanding survivability with excellent tactical and strategic mobility. Successful military outcomes depend on interlocking "systems of systems" capable of carrying out robust combined and joint peacekeeping and peace-enforcement operations. Having an organic fire support capability can be critical here, enabling infantry units deployed in a combat, reconnaissance or monitoring role to respond to threats in a scalable manner through direct or indirect fire.
Mortars have an important part to play in countering the terrorist threat to forward operating bases and convoys in hazardous areas of operation. Owing to improvements in range, precision and lethality, modern mortars enable troops deployed in counterinsurgency operations to engage targets successfully even in difficult terrain and built-up areas.
