Response to It would be the 7.58cm one and a late war version as


The Landships article has a drawing of the lMW n.A:

http://landships.info/landships/artillery_articles.html?load=/landships/artillery_articles/7_58cm_minenwerfer.html

The trail and wheels could be removed and the mortar fired from the baseplate - this was most often the configuration in defensive positions.

There were a couple of late war modifications for low angle fire. One of these modified the shape of the trail so the residual recoil forces could be absorbed more
effectively. There's a survivor at Irvinebank, Qld http://www.ammsbrisbane.com/documentation/lmw_11.html). The other is quite rare and seemed to
have had a cut down baseplate - sorry no images of this one.

There are a fair number of surviving lMWs in Qld -http://www.ammsbrisbane.com/documentation.htm.

Regards,

Charlie
