"There are plans to equip the mortar with an upgraded base plate, carriage accessories and other elements," the press office said.

The 2B25 Gull is an 82mm portable silent mortar. It is designed to eliminate the enemy’s manpower, including soldiers staying in shelters protected with body armor vests.

As its distinctive feature, the 2B25 Gull mortar shows no standard signs of a flash when it is fired and, therefore, it is frequently called silent.

The mortar has a weight of less than 13 kilograms, a maximum firing range of 1,200 meters and a fire rate of 15 rounds per minute.
