2" Light Paintball Mortar
The first combat effective paintball mortar, utilizing the know-how from our AT gun.
Have you noticed how every single paintball mortar attempt in the past resulted in something that didn't work in paintball combat? They were both clumsy to use and utilized ineffective or unsafe ammunition.
Our mortar will be heavily inspired by the British SMBL 2" light mortar. We will not only get close to its looks (including realistic-looking mortar bombs), but we will copy its usage as well: lightweight, easy-to-use, zero deployment time, aimed-by-hand, short range bombardment of point targets.
Our light mortar and its ammunition is easily carried by a 2-men team. This team provides priceless fire support against enemy infantry and act as a countermeasure to anti-tank guns. Our ammo highlights shell impacts with magenta powder cloud, which allows players to respect the kill radius.
We are leveraging the propulsion and ammo technology from our existing anti-tank gun. You can see its performance on Youtube.
