offers high accuracy and can be operated autonomously, without complex
fire preparations. NEMO can fire a first round within 30 seconds
from vehicle stop and could immediately exit from firing position
after the last shot, minimizing the risk of enemy counter-fire.
The mortar can be aimed for indirect or direct fire, and, by employing
MRSI fire, can engage a target with six bombs simultaneously. Precision
fire will also be realized in the future, with new precision guided
mortar munitions (PGMM) Patria is developing for its 120mm mortars.
