-NM95 81mm Mortar launcher
-Upgraded M125A2 Hull

The M125A1 was based on the improved M113A1 and shared some similar specifications as the M106 with the 107mm mortar. This is an M113 that has mounted an 81 millimeter mortar launcher inside the carriage itself. In 1964 came the diesel version of the wagon, called M125A1 and around 1980 the M125A2 came with improved suspension system and improved cooling system. These vans differ from the M113 in that they have a very large 3-part hatch on the rear part of the roof of the carriage.

In 1982-1983, 12 new M125A2s were acquired. The vehicles were purchased without the American bombers, because the Norwegian defense wanted to use their own, which was the standard NM95 bomber. Necessary parts for assembly of our bomb launcher were produced and assembled in Norway. The wagons were used by the infantry, after the creation of the Armored Battalions, the wagons were included in these. As a result, this was developed as a modified bomb launcher vehicle, named NM204.

Their further fate is not known, but they have been used until quite recently, when we got the CV90 wagons that were made for this. There is a small possibility that they are still in use or have been used for other roles

So far there are no mortar carriers in game, but hopefully one day we would get them. It will probably be difficult to achieve something with the aim and that, but it is quite possible I think. In the game it could be a cheap wagon to spawn in, with 50 rounds per minute and an ammunition capacity of 111x 81 millimeter grenades, it should be a fun wagon to use.

An 81mm grenade like this won’t be able to do much damage, but might knock out some spaa or lightly armored ivf’s. It has acess to smoke grenades, wich would be very handy, as you can communicate with your teammates or your squadron, about where they want smoke and much else. It can also be fun in night battles, as we have access to light grenades, which last about 50 seconds, and probably light up quite a bit, to help the team.

One could for example take good cover behind rocks or other terrain, and shoot from there, would be hard for the enemy to find and kill but I think there is good judgment from the use of the 81mm
