The Republic of China military unveiled a new locally developed mobile mortar
system, along with other locally developed weapons systems and equipment, during a media tour Friday in Taiwan to demonstrate its efforts to create self-reliant defenses.
The mobile mortar system comes in two versions: one is mounted to a vehicle and the other is designed to be set up on the ground, said Lieutenant Colonel Chen Chien-chung of the 202nd Arsenal under the Ministry of National Defense’s Armaments Bureau, who is responsible for developing the system.
Unlike traditional manual methods of launching mortars, the system allows personnel to launch mortars through a computerized system “which is completely developed locally,” Chen told reporters during a tour of the 202nd Arsenal’s Taipei unit. [FULL STORY]
