notes"Elbit Systems’ SPEAR is a fully autonomous, vehicle-mounted 120mm soft recoil mortar system for high-mobility platforms. SPEAR delivers effective fire support by combining the flexibility and effectiveness of accurate mortar firepower with exceptional tactical mobility. The mortar is a derivative of the CARDOM battle-proven mortar system - more than 1,000 systems extensively used by the US Army, NATO, Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), and others."

name"Soft Recoil Reduction"
value"Equipped with a recoil reduction system that reduces the mortar’s firing loads from 30+ tons to as low as 12-15 tons, the “soft recoil” allows the SPEAR to be mounted on a variety of high-mobility light tactical vehicles such as HMMWVs, jeeps and other high-mobility rapid deployment wheeled platforms as well as bigger wheeled or tracked platforms"
name"Configuration"
value"The system can operate independently with forward observers and/or deployed forces. The system can also be deployed standalone or as part of the battery/platoon configuration."
name"Fire Control System"
value"Targeting information is relayed to the Fire Control System (FCS) which computes the ballistic data and orders the mortar’s automatic laying system to position the mortar barrel to the exact azimuth and elevation. The system is embedded with an Inertial Navigation System (INS) to provide maximum accuracy."
