Lightweight Mortar Bipod Soon to Hit Afghan Hills

Kit Up! had the chance to speak with Rafael Correa, President of MaTech in Salisbury, MD, yesterday about a hot new piece of kit he's just shipped off to Aberdeen for testing.

It's a lightweight mortar bipod that takes advantage of aluminum and titanium to make a super strong, super light bipod that Correa says lops off over 30 pounds in the mortar load.

He's also got one for the 81mm mortar and is due to ship some test articles to Aberdeen by the end of April. Soldiers should begin seeing these within months...and let me tell you from first hand, these thinks are feather weight...

Thanks to Glenn Anderson for putting together such a good video...
