A newly developed 120mm caliber mortar made in Chernihiv has been tested by the Ukrainian military, according to Ukraine Today.

Based on a Soviet-era model, it is still one of a kind, with its barrel being more reliable and the body lighter than that of its predecessor, Ukraine Today reports.

One of the developers of the new mortar talks about some of challenges his team faces in its two-month work.
