Too bad about the mortar not being slide molded. Still, I think about four of these could find their way to my stash...

Thanks for the great review, Vinnie.

Hi Vinnie

It's a 5cm mortar, not a Stummel

German mortars

Thans David, I think I should tell Dragon! They have it on their poster as an 8cm M1942 Mortar KzGrW42! I've changed the information in the review, and notified Dragon, thanks mate!

I think the mortar was meant to be carried on the back, the Russian equivalent certainly was.

The infantry using the mortar in this picture are wearing the same frames, presumbly the No 2 carries the ammunition case on his.
