Elbit Systems of America was selected by the U.S. Army for the production and delivery of 120mm mortar cannons as part of the overall supply by the company of complete mortar systems, including baseplates, bipods, stowage kits and other items.
This selection follows more than a decade during which Elbit Systems of America has provided the U.S. Army with Mortar Fire Control Systems that process ballistics for all current ammunition and links mortars to the digital battlefield, all while providing flexibility for Soldiers on foot or aboard ground vehicles. Elbit Systems of America has provided the mortar weapon systems themselves since 2016 and the recent addition of the 120mm cannons marks an important milestone for the program.
"Mortar Weapon Systems and the associated Fire Control Systems are a critical component of the U.S. Army's brigade combat teams' mission execution and we're honored to be the company providing many of those mortars and related systems," said Ridge Sower, Vice President of Ground Combat & Precision Targeting at Elbit Systems of America. "With our solutions, Soldiers can increase their response times, accuracy, and safety."
Elbit Systems of America uses its extensive resources in Supply Chain Management to ensure on-time delivery and seamless product integration for the U.S. Army.
