Mortar "Nona-M1" is ideally suited for combat in the mountains, in the forest and in urban environments. The undoubted advantage of the sample is its high maneuverability - thanks to the adjustable width of the wheel travel, the Nona-M1 can be towed by almost any vehicle. An important factor is the safety of operation of this mortar, since ammunition is charged through the breech. This eliminates double loading, reports RG-Force
