Performance:

–     The Mortar Bomb is intended for combined destruction, both by air-blast and thermal emission, of the following variety of targets:

  • enemy manpower and equipment located mainly in different types of shelters and enclosed spaces such as caves as well as in the open;
  • light armoured and unarmoured vehicles.

 - The body of the thermobaric mortar bomb contains bursting charge that on impact ignites and disperses the contents of the body which, as it burns, generates a rapidly forming high-pressure blast wave which neutralizes the target area.

–     A zone characterized with overpressure and intense heat is created in the area of hits.

–     The aluminum body is plastic coated which guarantees much safer handling and storage of the ammunition;

- The fin stabilizer is made of plastic for increasing the life of the tube of the Mortar weapon system.
