It is a Russian 120mm PM-38. You can just make out part of the winding handle above his left hand.

Dear all,

could you please help me to identify this mortar.
It looks like Russian M1938 120 mm, but could it be German Gr42?
It was found during archaeological excavations in Vilnius castle territory. During the war there were Germans, after - Russians.
Thank you in advance!

Not only metallic tray for two minutes, but the additional mechanism for leveling the bipedal :wink:
p.s.Capping immediately releases a mortar 8-)

Hi all,

12cm sGr.Wfr.42 mortar (image from Ebay)
It is a pity that soldiers hide most of the mortar. There are very few wartime images of this mortar...
