SPEAR | LIGHT MORTAR
SPEAR (Mark 2 in use) is a fully autonomous, vehicle-mounted 120mm soft recoil mortar system for high-mobility platforms. Other mortars, which have high recoil upon firing, would punch holes in the roofs of any light vehicle they are mounted on. The Spear is mounted on specially-equipped Pseudonaja Mortar Carrier Vehicles in New Hayesalian service.
The mortar system is used to support New Hayesalian troops in the field and support combined arms.
The core of the system is the recoil softening device, which prevents damage to the carrier vehicle. As such, this system is used chiefly in the Mountain Legion and in heavy motorised units of the New Hayesalian Army.
