Topic: The (IMI) Hornet mobile mortar system

There is a growing interest in the “new generation” of mortars developed by Israel military industries (IMI).
Mortars have been part of land combat for hundreds of years. In the 20th century they seemed to lose some of their combat glory but in recent years, it is clear that this was a very short lived episode. Mortars without any doubt have gained renewed respect from fighting forces. The nature of most conflicts in recent years made mortars important again with manufacturers reporting high sales. This led to a new effort to facilitate the use of mortars as an integral force multiplier of infantry units.
