Towards the end of the Rhodesian war Scorpion 81mm Mortar carriers were issued to all the battalions to give mobile support and to defeat Soviet Green Archer counter battery equipment which had been issued to FRELIMO.
The mortar was mounted on a concrete rotating base which meant the weapon could fire in any direction and adjust rapidly.
