From Switzerland to Sweden: Firing tests with the Mortar 16 system

At extensive external ballistic trials in Sweden, armasuisse Science and Technology (S+T) was able to determine important test results. The data obtained will now be used as the foundation for producing a precise ballistic model and will thus form the basis for safe and efficient use of the weapons system 12 cm Mortar 16.
