I'm putting this here as it seemed most appropriate:

2A42 30mm autocannon from a destroyed Russian BMD-2 IFV being added on an improvised mounting.

When I was playing with mortars they were still all infantry.
Heres a clip of a Finnish 120 mm mortar squad with the task to fire a 60 second / 12 round offensive burst. The first round goes at 1:07 into the clip. They have a snag with a loose charge bag and the timing goes a little wrong at the end, so they don't fire a round on 60 seconds.

I guess if you're not going to bother checking the sights and re-laying the mortar after every round...hope its well bedded in!

They tend to be careful about getting the mortar bedded in.. And they check the sights and levels after every round.
