The Alakran is one of the world lightest 81 & 120 mm mortar carrier system. It´s innovative design allows the use a 1 ton payload vehicle.

The Alakran 81 or 120mm mortar is mounted at the rear of the vehicle, in fire position the mortar is deployed at the rear of the chassis on a base-plate platform, firing 81mm or 120mm rounds and sending the recoil energy directly into the ground. This means there is no need for any vehicle reinforcement, which in turn means that lighter vehicles – both cheaper and transportable by helicopter – can be deployed as mortar carriers.

The Alakran uses an aiming electro-mechanical system MAD-1 also developed by the Spanish Company NTGS that allows aiming and shooting in a much faster way, with automatic calculations and by means of radio communications, avoiding shouting orders.

According NTGS engineers, Alakran mortar system needs only 30 seconds to be ready to fire, two seconds to re-aim after shooting, five seconds to aim at a new target, and 15 seconds to be on the move again.

The has already been tested by several countries from Middle East. Special operations forces and expeditionary forces have also reportedly shown interest in the product.
