Nemo Mortar Turret

Patria's Nemo Mortar Turret
goes naval

I've been looking at mortar turrets for ground applications for a while and I think they offer better capabilities than the rear-bed mounted mortars.

Patria seems to move the concept one more step and integrated their Nemo 120mm mortar turret on a patrol boat.

Interesting application for a mortar system. I can think of two scenarios where these patrol boats with Nemo turrets might be desirable:

  • Supporting SEAL or any Naval Commando force during their infil and exfil phase
  • On Rivering Boats providing fire support to forces fighting next to water ways, rivers, etc.
