The Ukrainian Armed Forces is preparing to adopt an upgraded version of the Molot mortar

The Ukrainian army is preparing to receive a modernized version of the 120-mm Molot mortar. According to the Ukrainian Military Pages, the new version of the mortar should replace the previous version in the troops.


According to the portal, work to improve the mortar was carried out for two years, from the moment of termination of operation due to the death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Most likely, the new mortar will receive a new name.

Reportedly, the Mayak plant, where the Molot mortars were produced, improved the mechanism for preventing double loading, using in addition to steel and bronze in the design to reduce corrosion and failure of the fuse mechanism due to the effect of temperature.

In addition, the base plate has been replaced with a lighter one that can be used on hard surfaces. The wheel travel mechanism has been improved, the shock absorbers have been replaced with springs, which are considered more durable.

About "Hammer" watch from 22 minutes


Currently, the modernized 120-mm mortar M-120-15 "Molot" is being tested, according to the results of which the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine will make a decision on the adoption of the mortar for service and purchase.

In addition to the modernized "Hammer", 120-mm mortars "Buchard" from the "Starokramatorsky machine-building plant", as well as the "MP-120" mortar from the private company "Ukrainian armored vehicles" are also participating in the tests.

It is noted that due to the protracted testing of domestic mortars, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine decided to purchase a batch of 120-mm EM-120 mortars (analogue 2B11) from Bulgaria.

        . the honor to wrap the mortar barrel with duct tape in patriotic zhovto-blakitnyh colors, in order to prevent its rupture, was given to the mortarmen themselves.

          Wire first! wassat Generally amazing. During the Second World War, these mortars were produced in any workshop, even a "bed" one ... and then the European "superpower" managed to first release a mortar-killer of the crew, then two years to refine something, then buy from the Bulgarians ...

It seems like there was some noise, but no corpses, and that's good. And what a fuck they were to choose a shitcrat as mayor.

    Our 2C12 is an excellent option, reliable, unpretentious and, most importantly, inexpensive to operate. SOBom served for 2 years on these systems.

      With the purchase of Bulgarian mortars, another GREAT ZRADA (betrayal) and corruption hype:
      Specialized experts argue that the Bulgarian company is mainly engaged in the modernization and repair of outdated types of weapons. It does not have its own technologies and production facilities. There are rumors in Ukraine that the deal was personally lobbied by Deputy Defense Minister Oleksandr Mironyuk. Previously, he oversaw trade with partners from Bulgaria, and is personally interested in the new deal. The scandal surrounding the purchase of Bulgarian mortars erupted after it became known that the EM-120 did not have international certification and were not even in service with the manufacturing country. Ukrainian experts are convinced that a corruption scheme is involved in this case. They believe that this clever move will replace the scandalous Hammer with another low-quality mortar, possibly at a higher price.
      The Bulgarian EM-120 mortar is a copy of the Soviet 2B-11.
      The situation with the purchase of Bulgarian mortars once again demonstrates the problems of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine. Soviet reserves are gradually running out. To organize the release of their own products often does not work. In these conditions, Ukraine is forced to purchase weapons abroad, and, as a rule, we are talking about the acquisition of old models.
