Mortar Division

The 81mm mortar provides essential indirect fire support to a Battle Group. It is the only guaranteed indirect fire asset that the Battle Group Commander will have and can be used in a wide range of operations.

Mortaring is a technical and demanding skill which requires well-trained and practiced mortar men and commanders who can appreciate and understand the battle at all levels.
