Mortar and artillery sub-calibre training systems

The sub-calibre mortar training system MT 25mm, is an effective tool to save costs and to provide high-quality training in small areas. The system consists of an aluminium-alloy body and is available for mortars in caliber 60mm, 81mm and 120mm.

As a result of an improvement program, we can now offer the new training cartridge 14.5mm, with an electronically fused spotting round for artillery training systems, e.g. for a howitzer. The standard 14.5mm training cartridges with impact fuse and pyrotechnic time fuse are still available.
