This is a project that has been under development for some time but I thought it was worth mentioning. And to make sure that not everything on this
board is posts about the US/Russia/China techs
I just love the modular concept.
And you can fit it with the AMOS turret (here seen on the superb CV9040):
"AMOS is a mortar system comprising a turret with two 120 mm breech-loading mortar barrels mounted side by side. AMOS has been created through a
co-operation agreement between Alvis Hägglunds AB and Patria Vammas Oy, of Finland. Alvis Hägglunds is developing and manufacturing the turret, whilst
Patria Vammas is developing and manufacturing the weapon system. AMOS can be mounted on most wheeled or tracked vehicles, i.e the CV90, LAV. Compared
with conventional mortars, AMOS has increased firepower, mobility and protection. "
And I've heard romours that it's possible to fire it directly too. Nice to be on the recieving end of a twin 120mm..
