21st Century Toys 21C20059S1 US 81mm Mortar Pit with Three Crewmen (1:32 Scale) "The only way you can win a war is to attack and keep on attacking, and after you have done that, keep attacking some more."
- General George S. Patton Jr., January 1945

The 81mm Mortar Mle 27/31 was designed by Edgar Brandt, who set out to improve the British Stokes mortar of WWI. This particular model was more or less his masterpiece, and in addition to being adopted by the French it was sold worldwide and became the model for the US, Italian, Russian and Yugoslavian service mortars. It was a simple smooth-bore weapon, supported by a baseplate and a bipod with the usual elevating and traversing controls. There was a fixed firing pin in the breech cap,and bombs were simply drop-fired, though some of the mortars sold to other countries were fitted with trip-firing mechanisms which allowed the bombs to be dropped and then fired by lanyard. The design was so good that it differs very little from the modern Thompson-Brandt mortar except for the baseplate shape.

Pictured here is a US 81mm mortar pit with three crewmen. Also comes with a sandbag emplacement. Sold Out!
