As another example, the committee suspects that the range, accuracy, and lethality of 60- and 80-mm mortars, along with the number of rounds needed to zero in on a target, could be improved by applying modern technology to systems that are not intrinsically different from their World War I antecedents. Although not insisting on specific fire power and fire support improvements, the committee recommends most strongly that Code 353 should begin to structure replacement programs for the current successful programs that will soon be removed from Code 353’s portfolio.
