The 60 mm mortar has recently become an extremely versatile weapon system, building upon the simplicity of operation and at the same time taking great advantage of improvements in fire direction, targeting and the lethality of enhanced 60 mm extended range mortar ammunition.

The 60 mm DM-42 Commando variant is a line of sight, hand stabilised, mortar, aimed by eye for indirect fire at what can be considered extended ranges for short barreled, man portable, patrol mortars.

The range of ammunition types is standard HE. Practice. Screening smoke. Visible light and IR illuminating rounds. The DM-42 is designed for quick response, reliability and ease of operation.

The special handgrip sight incorporates the charge and range tables, which adds reliability and range to target accuracy.

The DM-42 can be used up to charge 3. For easy handling and rapid firing it is recommended to use charge 2 only.

The DM-42 commando mortar is provided with a hand grip on the sight for bearing and elevation. It can fire a full range of ammunitions including HE, PRAC, SMK and ILLUM.

The DM-42 can fire at a maximum distance of 1,970 m with a burst rate of 15 rounds per minute. It has a maximum weight of 9.5 kg with base plate.
