"Reports on this weapon indicate that it is generally used as a mortar against personnel.

The piece is mounted on a cradle which houses the hydro-spring recoil mechanism. It has a steel split-trail carriage mounted on steel disk wheels. The general characteristics follow (see accompanying sketch)…."
