Historical Description Edit

The M29A1 81mm was a medium mortar developed for the American military in 1952. Its straight tube design afforded the M29 a maximum range of 15,540 feet; fifty percent further than its predecessor the M1. It could be disassembled into three components, and was light enough to be carried over long distances by one or more soldiers. During the Vietnam War, American mortar squads would coordinate with the frontline via radio to rain down explosive, illumination, and white phosphorous shells on enemy positions.
