    Anyone know the kill radius or kill zone of a 81mm and 120mm mortar?


    Trying to figure out some stuff regarding Israel's statement that they had a misfired mortar that killed a bunch of civilians near a UN school. They said they were 30 yards off target.

    I'm a mortar... 5 meter for 60mm, 10 meter for 81mm and 25 meter kill with 75 meter total burst radius for 120mm.

    I earned my purple heart via 60mm mortar landing 30 meters away from me... tiny shrapnel but nothing life threatening.
