Precision Mortars May be Headed to Afghanistan

Our boy Glenn Anderson spoke with the folks at ATK last fall about a new mortar guidance kit that would make a 120mm mortar into a mini-JDAM.

The 120 is a key piece of fire support in Afghanistan and adding some brains to the boomer might help make it easier to get the go-ahead to employ it.

ATK says the new XM395 mortar guidance kit can kill targets within a 10 meter CEP. Not bad for such a "dumb" weapon. The company is running concurrent testing for both an Army program of record and fulfilling the UNS. Joes may get this capability as soon as March.
