Contents 1 Description 2 Ammunition 3 See also 4 References // Description The French-made Brandt 60 mm LR Gun-mortar is a very unusual mortar, which is capable of firing like a gun. It is a smoothbore weapon that uses the same fin-stabilized bombs as normal 60 mm infantry mortars. These bombs can be breech-loaded within the vehicle on which the mortar is mounted, or drop-loaded in the usual mortar fashion. Ammunition The Gun-mortar mortar can fire the standard infantry 60 mm bomb, but is also provided with a high-velocity fin-stabilized piercing shot, and a fin-stabilized shaped-charge bomb, to give the weapon increased anti-armour capability.
