The 60 mm Illuminating Mortar Bomb ILL 60C is intended for artificial illumination of the target area for the purposes of reconnaissance, firing, supporting the fire of the anti-tank means, and for performance of other tactical actions on the battlefield.


The payload of the bomb is a movable illuminating system consisting of a parachute system and an illuminating flare.

After the ejection of the illuminating system over the target, flare descent is smooth and slow due to the parachute system, and its spiral motion provides maximum illuminating effect during the whole time of flare burning.
