Given the general lack of pictures of the 120mm "Franco" mortar, I think the following ones, despite their bad quality, will be of interest:

(Source: http://www.todocoleccion.net/manual-mor ... ~x30077595)
As can be seen, they are from the book Características, descripción y manejo del mortero liso "Franco" de 120mm y su munición. The book itself says that the mortar was produced by Esperanza y Cía. S.A., from Marquina (Vizcaya). The pictures are taken at the factory, that's why there are factory workers manipulating the mortar instead of soldiers.
Also from the same source, a drawing of the mortar ready for transport:

P.S.: Probably everbody is aware of what follows, but just in case, it should be noted that this mortar was not used in the SCW; it was a post-war design.
