Ammunition for 60 mm mortars


The 60 mm mortar bombs of NATO standard are intended for fire from the 60 mm Ultralight Commando Mortar ANTOS and from 60 mm mortar ANTOS-LR. The following mortar bombs are manufactured for 60 mm mortars:

  • 60 mm HEF
  • 60 mm HEI
  • 60 mm SMK
  • 60 mm ILL
  • 60 mm ILL IR
  • 60 mm TRAIN (JUMP)

Mortar bombs are delivered to the customer with filled both primary and additional charges and it is stored in water-proof plastic case. Mortar bombs are packed in a wooden case, each case contains 10 pieces of mortar bombs.

60mm HEF a HEI

Bomb body is filled with TNT explosive for the HEF bomb (standard high-explosive) or with HTX blasting explosive with thermo-baric effects for the HEI. All these bombs are equipped with the nose fuse PDSQ according to NATO standards.

60mm SMK

60 mm mortar bomb SMK (SMOKE) is determined for marking of location on terrain (enemy position, object of interest) in distance under mortar range via smoke cloud created by mortar bomb explosion. Construction is based on 60 mm HEF/HEI mortar bombs but instead explosive composition contents smoke made one based on red phosphorus.

60 mm training mortar bomb JUMP (TRAIN) is determined for initial training of mortar gunners especially for weapon and ammunition preparation before firing, loading, aiming and shooting practise. Mortar bomb JUMP is inert and has rubber fuse mock-up. 60 mm mortar bomb JUMP is reusable. Bomb is ejected from mortar barrel by means of 9 mm TEMPO 6 ANTOS cartridge inserted into ammunition chamber of stabilizer carrier after bomb fin stabilizer unscrewing. After shooting the bomb shall be cleaned, fin stabilizer shall be unscrewed and spent cartridge shall be removed by tongs or screwdriver. The shooting can be repeated after new cartridge inserting.

Mortar bomb average mass1290 g ± 30 g
Mortar bomb length285 mm ± 3 mm
Range of fire from mortar ANTOS (65° elevation)12 m
Range of fire from mortar ANTOS-LR (65° elevation)5 m
Rejected cartridge (is not part of 60 mm JUMP)9 mm TEMPO 6 ANTOS
