AMPV - First turreted mortar prototype

BAE delivers new prototype Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle with unmanned turreted mortar capability to the US Army. The prototype showcases a newly designed top plate system — the External Mission Equipment Package (ExMEP) — that allows for the easy installation of a variety of turrets. This vehicle prototype is also outfitted with the Patria NEMO remote-controlled 120mm turreted mortar system.

          You wouldn't be able to get a lancet near one thanks to Americans actually knowing their defensive onion. Knowing how they usually operate, they probably would've blown up your drone operators from the air before this thing even approached a dangerous area.

            when do they teach ukraine this special move?

            lmfao, probably coulda saved a bunch of lives doing int the US way ...right?

            What the frick are you on about?
            It's a mortar carrier designed for hitting shit kilometers away that isn't in line-of-sight. Only relation to an IFV is that it uses old Bradley hulls because the US has thousands of them to spare

            >Only relation to an IFV is that it uses old Bradley hulls because the US has thousands of them to spar
            so why arent they in ukraine, instead of making idiotic "mortar" demonstrators?

              moreover, the NEMO still has a guy drawing shells from a bustle to enter into the loader to begin with. Not that a disgusting brown creature like you would have bothered to check.

      Yes. Nearly all turreted mortars can, even the slavshit ones. It's only a impact detonated munition after all.

          It was hard to design, find a role within doctrine, to make, to reload and to automatically set the charges to make it fire into the desired distance [though they also corrected this thanks to the ability to automatically depress or elevate the mortar], also to find a suitable platform to mount all of the systems on due to the mobility and protection necessity, plus cost due to its proximity to the battlefield due to its short range. Oh also the mortar had to be adopted.

      Mechanically complicated and prone to catastrophic ammo explosions if hit because of the way the ammo needs to be accessible for the autoloader

      Those because this wasn't designed by slaves I assume they did what they could to mitigate that

      Cost. It's not that expensive of itself, but it is ludicrously expensive compared to a standard mortar tube.
      Most armies would buy a new SPG instead but America is rich enough to not care about the cost efficiency too much and their powerpoints have automated mortars on them for the robotic future.

      Army will still cheap out and have mortar guys manually shooting a 120 out the open hatches of an AMPV, just like they currently do with M113-based mortar carriers

    Use this with laser-guided munitions and equip the vehicle with onboars scout drones with laser designation capabilities, and turn them into a self-sufficient precision guided mortar platform. They can be their own forward observers, and work with other vehicles to spot/designate for one another, too.
