Lithuania delivered to Ukraine a batch of Panzermörser self-propelled mortars on the chassis of the American armored personnel carrier M113A2

Lithuania continues to supply Ukraine with military equipment from the presence of its army, this time the Armed Forces of Ukraine received a batch of Panzermörser self-propelled mortars and fire control vehicles. The Minister of Defense of Lithuania Arvydas Anusauskas announced the transfer of equipment.


Lithuania handed over to the Ukrainian army 10 Panzermörser self-propelled mortars on the chassis of the American tracked armored personnel carrier M113A2. The Ministry of Defense of Lithuania received these mortars from the presence of the Bundeswehr, the delivery took place in 2005-2006. In total, the Lithuanian Armed Forces were armed with 42 heavy self-propelled mortars. Together with mortars, Ukraine received two fire control vehicles, again based on the M113A2 armored personnel carrier. Also, the party included ammunition for mortars, how much is not disclosed.

Lithuania continues to fulfill its obligations. I want to thank the soldiers of the Lithuanian army and the specialists of the national defense system, who in a short time prepared and organized the logistics

- cites the statement of Anusauskas by the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense.

The Panzermörser heavy self-propelled mortar is a 120 mm Tampella mortar mounted on the basis of the American M113A2 armored personnel carrier. Declared firing range - 6500 - 7200 meters, transportable ammunition - 60 minutes. The crew, he is the calculation, consists of 5 people.

In 2013, Lithuania, with the help of the Israeli company Elbit, upgraded mortars. The updated Panzermörser received a new digital fire control system, devices for observing and adjusting fire, as well as new barrels.

As the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense noted, since the beginning of the Russian special operation, Ukraine has received 62 M113 armored personnel carriers for various purposes from the presence of the Lithuanian army.

      This self-propelled mortar is not easy to fill up in counter-battery combat. The sides of 80 mm aluminum armor hold fragments, nimble, passable. The engine is reliable. If only to extinguish them with Lancets.

        It's true. Apparently it was modernized as Kardom.

          If his sides had been increased from 20 to 80, then he would hardly have remained nimble and passable. The modernization program included the replacement of the engine, chassis components and control systems.

              So the Germans are misleading.
              It is about the M113 Panzermorser 120 mm that they write that its sides are 20 mm. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/M113_Panzerm(o-umlaut)rser_120_mm
              It's easier to write about M113 - Booking - Aluminum 12 - 38 mm

        If it works correctly, that is, no more than 10 minutes at one position, then the Lancet is also unlikely to be in time. They are not on duty 24/7.

    I don’t understand, the Germans gave the Balts for their army. The Baltic states were handed over to Svidomo, right? And what will they be left with? Will the Germans beg for something else?

      The Tribalts do not have as many soldiers as they brought equipment ...
      They are used to fighting quietly, shooting in the back from the bushes, like their "green brothers" ancestors...

    It is a pity that ours do not destroy the bridges of the railway structure. And everything that contributes to the transfer of equipment to the front. Each such mortar is the life of our soldiers, and our military-political leadership does not itch.

    And who is preventing Russia from resuming the production of NONA-SVK self-propelled mortars?
    There should be a division of them in each motorized rifle brigade for a long time!
    The BTR-70/80 costs a thousand at storage bases, just upgrade, guns for NONA can be produced hundreds of pieces a month, this is the most budgetary and necessary equipment for maneuverable combat operations.

      It is forbidden. This is a complex and expensive product. You just need to install 2B11 on an armored platform.


      While our handicraft put it in the back of an ordinary Ural.

        Motoliga is a great idea. I especially liked where the base plate was attached. Apparently it is not necessary to carry and think this weight.

          Even in Afghanistan they did this, but after a hundred or two shots, the bottom of the MT-Lb kicks out ....
          It is necessary to weld the reinforcing frame from the channel inside the motorcycle league ....

            It is clear that it is necessary to strengthen the structure and chassis in terms of recoil. But if you take it seriously, then you can make retractable supports for hanging.

            But is it possible to make the Motolyga lie down on the ground, like a BMD? Or should the tank be adapted for this?, since we have this stuff in bulk at our storage bases.

    Mortars , cannons are now secondary .
    Now the question is whether the bosses will start fighting or not?
    When will there be normal regiments and divisions instead of the BTG? BTG against the army does not take out due to the small effect of fire on the enemy.
    Along the way, the division or whatever else is added to the super BTG does not suppress the enemy’s defenses in the offensive sector.
    It was written about this canoe with BTG back in WWII (the names are slightly different), the point is that it can be used when attacking a demoralized or pursuing a defeated enemy. More and more is not acceptable for anything, in WWII it was tested and proved by both us and the Germans.

      There is such a thing. Again, they will also be kicked out as far as possible. War, my friend, you understand. In the last war, the whole of Europe also worked for Germany, and in the end, Hitler, like a rat, ended his life in the basement.

        The main problem is that our mobilization potential and theirs (that is, NATO's) are incomparable and clearly in their favor.
        a Ukrainian is a lot more, here the Poles are already throwing 5 thousand impudently, and soon they will officially fit in. Metastases then grow and grow!
        The time has come, otherwise there will be even more destruction and death for us

          I will not say 100%, but somewhere I heard a figure that it seems like our mobile resource is something in the region of 20 million people (+ -), which is not a little. If a fight starts with NATO, it will be another war.

          Well, the Poles have their own interest there, not so much military as territorial, so the increase in their numbers is probably due to the fact that this Polish army will simply stand on the border of their interests. Moreover, Duda and Zelya have already signed an agreement giving the green light to the presence of Poles on the territory of Ukraine and allowing their participation in administrative work and in government.
