The M106 Mortar Carrier is based on the M113 armored personnel carrier mounting a 120mm mortar. The M106 provides mobile fire support with a degree of protection for it’s crew. The mortar is mounted on a rotating platform in the rear of the vehicle. The concept is to provide a mobile launch platform that can be moved from various firing position rather than being set up in a static location. The 120mm mortar can also removed from the vehicle and mounted on a large swivel base. The M106 has been in operation since the 1960’s and the latest version, the M106A4, is still in use today.
