Includes one Command Carbine team, six M1 81mm Mortar teams, six Medium four-hole bases & one Small three-hole base.
The 81mm M1 Mortar was based on the French Brandt design developed during WWI. The US government purchased the manufacturing rights to the mortar in the late 1930s and began production. The small mortar could be broken down into its three basic components for transport: the tube, the mount and the baseplate. The 81mm mortar’s range varied depending on the type of shell used, up to a maximum of 3,290 yards.
