MORTAR MUNITIONS AND COMPONENTS

60mm to 120mm Mortar Munitions, Bodies and Increments

MANUFACTURING MEETS INNOVATION

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems produces high-quality mortar components and increments the for U.S. military for 60mm, 81mm and 120mm mortar applications. Our innovation in guided mortar applications provides the warfighter with another level of precision in the field.

MORTAR MUNITIONS

60mm MAPAM

The 60mm Mortar Anti-Personnel Anti-Material (MAPAM) ammunitions offers improved lethality (up to 100%) over conventional mortar ammunitions. The mortar’s pre-fragmented payload can be tailored to meet specific user requirements to ensure an optimum lethal area against various target sets. The pre-fragmented payload also provide the advantage of precision control over the danger zone, giving friendly troops much more responsive fire support in close combat.

81mm MAPAM

The 81mm Mortar Anti-Personnel Anti-Material (MAPAM) ammunitions offers improved lethality (up to 100%) over conventional mortar ammunitions. The mortar’s pre-fragmented payload can be tailored to meet specific user requirements to ensure an optimum lethal area against various target sets. The pre-fragmented payload also provide the advantage of precision control over the danger zone, giving friendly troops much more responsive fire support in close combat.

Expeditionary Fire Support System (EFSS)

The Expeditionary Fire Support System (EFSS) was developed in response to the United States Marine Corps need for a fire support system that is lighter, more mobile and vertically transportable for missions requiring tactical versatility, speed and close-in fire support.

The EFSS 120mm M327 Towed Mortar and an ammunition suite consists of four type-classified munitions: High Explosive (HE), Smoke, Illumination and Practice rounds. The ammunition suite provides greater lethality, accuracy, and range over currently fielded ammunition.

The EFSS expands the maneuver commander’s choices of fire-support capability against an array of targets including light-armored, motorized, and dismounted personnel; command and control systems; and indirect fire systems.

81mm Roll Controlled Guided Mortar (RCGM)

General Dynamics The 81mm Roll Control Guided Mortar (RCGM) was developed to provide greater precision on target thereby reducing collateral damage. The 81mm RCGM is based around the current U.S. M252 mortar.

How the RCGM Works: Target coordinates are programmed into the RCGM using a portable GPS setter. The fuze is set manually to proximity, point detonate, or delay modes. Once the mortar is launched the on-board GPS acquires satellites and determines the mortar’s position and vertical reference (up). Based on continuous GPS updates, the auto-pilot calculates corrections and sends commands to the canards to continuously maneuver the mortar toward the target. Upon impact the mortar detonates in the desired mode.

MORTAR BODIES AND INCREMENTS

120mm Mortar Bodies

120mm HE, Smoke, Illumination and Full Range Training

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems produces mortar bodies for the full range of the U.S. Army’s 120mm mortar munitions inventory. Mortar production includes the M934 High Explosive (HE), the M929 Smoke, the XM930 Illumination and the M931 Full Range Training Round (FRTR).

Mortar Increments

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems is the leading manufacturer of propellants for U.S. military for 60mm, 81mm and 120mm Mortar Systems Increments. These propellants are flash-suppressed and clean burning resulting in minimum residue, flash and blast overpressure. The superior flow characteristics of these BALL POWDER® Propellants enhance efficiency and accuracy of loading operations. The combination of low cost and superior performance make our propellants the choice of the U.S. Government. Experience in the manufacture and development of mortar propellants allows us to tailor these propellants to meet specific customer needs.
