The Dardo, state of the art in terms of mobility, crew protection and firing power, will be displayed in its mortar carrier version fitted with a 120 mm rifled bore mortar, TDA type and 2R2M semiautomatic mode.

The vehicular version of this mortar offers many advantages in terms of shooting range and celerity thanks to the semiautomatic loading, the electrically powered movement and the computer assisted ballistic. This capabilities allow the vehicle to be used as support for the combat units since the weapon is employed in security conditions with the possibility to move quickly.
