M21 Mortar Motor Carriage is an American self-propelled artillery.


A variant of the M3 Half-track, the M21 Mortar Motor Carriage is equipped with a 81mm M1 mortar in the rear compartment. The M2 Browning machine gun is retained, but is moved further back on a pintle mount.

As an artillery piece, the 81mm mortar does not offer very long range and is not very adequate against enemy armour, but it is still good against soft-skinned targets in relatively close support of friendly units with respectable rate of fire.
