The Okruban mobile mortar 120mm works on the basis of an automatic deployment and retraction system, with an automatic horizontal and vertical adjustment of the tube. The storage compartment behind the two-man cab enables the vehicle to carry 32 mortar shells (16 on each side). The time for deployment is only 12 seconds, and 10 seconds for retraction. The weight of the system without the mortar tube itself is 370 kg. The traverse guidance angle varies from -90 to +90°. The elevation angle varies from +45 to +85°.

With its new technology, Eraf solves the operational problems of current mortar carriers as overload, vehicle reinforcement, large platforms, overheating, limited firing capabilities, etc. Since it doesn't use any recoil absorber system, the Okruban is easy to operate and it keeps the traditional mortar tube effectiveness and efficiency. Likewise, its electromechanical aiming system provides high speed and accuracy in its operation. The Okruban software incorporates GIS technology and new features such as the Zonal Shooting and Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact system that simplifies operations by increasing the mortar effect over the enemy.

The Okruban 120mm mortar system is mounted on Toyota chassis Landcruiser but it can be easily integrated on other light vehicles such as a Jeep J8, a Land Rover, or any other pickup truck having at least a1.5-ton payload without the need for structural reinforcements.


NOTE: Army Recognition wants to, apologize for having previously made an inadequate confusion by erroneously mixing Eraf's vehicle with its Spanish competitor made by Everis. The here above description has been properly updated.
