Nebelwerfer 35??? :? Ummhhhhh. I don`t think.

See the images posted on 08 June and 18 Aug 2010 in this thread. I think it is the same mortar.

On the other hand I need help with this other mortar: 12cm Gr.W.42 ??? :?

This is either a French made mle. 1935 60mm Brandt, or the U.S. M-2, which was a licensed copy of the French original.

Hi all,

Can somebody help me to identify this mortar? :?
I suppose Romanian 120mm mortar

120mm Resita mortar model 1942??? I've never seen any pictures of this model.

Neither had I until today; this was a Romanian copy of the Soviet 120mm M-1938 (HM-38) battalion mortar.

Do you think therefore that this mortar is 120mm Resita mortar model 1942? :?

I think that it is the NBW 35 rather than the 12cm.

In reply to Sturm 78's question: yes I believe it is indeed the Re­sita weapon, I suppose it is possible that it is simply a captured Soviet M-1938, but the carriage does not match the Soviet made one in details, most notably the wheels.
