This manual describes the Soviet Army 120-mm trench mortar, 1943 and 1938 models, including technical information required for the identification, use, and care of the mortar, ammunition, and accessory equipment.
      The manual was produced shortly after the Korean War started and was clearly created to assist U.S. forces who might capture such weapons and would enable them to make use of them against their former owners.
      The majority of the photos were taken by Americans in preparing this booklet, using captured examples, probably at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. Most of the other illustrations appear to have been taken from the Soviet manuals for these weapons and show a wealth of details
