BERN, Switzerland, March 19 By Richard Tomkins (UPI
-- RUAG Defense of Switzerland has introduced a modular 120mm mortar system that comes equipped with a semi-automatic loader system.
The Cobra features electronic drives and shoot–and-scoot capabilities, multi-round capabilities and ballistic computing. It can be integrated into any lightweight vehicle, RUAG said.
"The RUAG Cobra mortar system incorporates RUAG's ballistic computing, allowing automatic gun laying and multi-round single impact capabilities," the company said. "The system is designed to fire any standard 120mm ammunition, including latest generation smart ammunition."
The Cobra system has a range of about 5.6 miles.
RUAG said the system was first unveiled last month at the International Defense Exhibition and Conference in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Additional details on the system's specifications were not immediately available.
