CARDOM

Computerized 120 mm recoil mortar system for mounting on light and medium armored tracked carriers and 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 wheeled armored and light chassis. The CARDOM provides accurate, effective and immediate fire support for rapidly deployed and special forces, as well as for infantry and artillery units.

The CARDOM’s state-of-the-art embedded Fire Control System (FCS) combines an Inertial Navigation System (INS), electrical drives for automatic laying, and an on-board ballistic computer integrated with an in-service Battle Management System (BMS). Together these provide a direct digital link to modern forward observer (FO) target acquisition sensors including up to date UAV’s.
