Description: The MO 120 RT is a highly mobile 120mm rifled towed mortar manufactured by TDA Armaments, a Thales France and EADS of Germany joint venture. This weapon is capable of precisely engaging targets ranging up to 13 kilometers (8 miles) using rocket assisted projectile (RAP) or 9 kilometers (5 miles) using non-assisted ammunition. Overall, this weapon is lightweight enough to be towed by HMMWV class vehicles and airlifted by helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft.

The Mobile Dragon Fire is a variant that fits into US Marine Corps' LAV vehicles. The 2R2M or 120 2R2M is an advanced derivative intended for both wheeled and tracked armored mortar vehicles. 120 RT rifled mortar family feature an accurate targeting system relying on GPS feed data and a powerful fire computer which calculates the fire sequence within three to five seconds. The rifled mortar also supports high rates of fire, roughly 18 rounds per minute.

The MO 120 RT is currently in service with the French Army and other 23 armies worldwide including three NATO countries. In addition to ground and airborne carriers, the 120 RT can be parachuted down mounted on a pallet. It can fire a broad range of munitions. In 2002, it was integrated into French Army's VAB 6x6 armored vehicle with the effort being funded by DGA. In 2004, it was selected by General Dynamics for the EFSS program to provide battlefield indirect/direct fire for the US Marine Corps.
