Preparing for the 2030 land environment

Preparing for the 2030 land environment

While the focus for mortar systems was on firepower a few years ago, it is now on mobility and flexibility for the troops, and the elimination of the 120mm systems from the U.S. Marine Corps’ arsenal is only one example demonstrating this shift. 

Ahead of this year’s Future Mortar Systems conference, Defence IQ had the opportunity to discuss with Colonel Steve Fisher (Ret.), Liaison Officer at the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory and Chairman of the conference. In this exclusive interview transcript, he outlines:

  • The impact of the ‘multi-domain’ concepts on future capability development and acquisition
  • The U.S. Marine Corps’ current experimentations with technology to replace the 120mm mortar systems 
  • How the changing environment will impact the use of mortar systems
