ShM-120 PRAM

 

The ShM-120 (samohybný minomet) vz.85 PRAM is a self-propelled mortar based on an extended BMP-2 chassis and armed with a 120 mm mortar. The development started in 1978 and in 1982 two prototypes were assembled. The tests were conducting till 1985 and in 1990 a total of 12 vehicles were built.

At the secession between Czech republic and Slovakia, the vehicles were dispatched between the both armies. The Czech army would still possess 8 vehicles.

The PRAM is organized in a classical way with a driver compartment to the left of the engine compartment and the combat compartment at the rear in a casemate. The main armament is centrally installed and can be elevated from 40 to 80° and traversed from - 15° to + 15°. The loading is done by the breech. The mortar has a range of 500 m to 8000m depending on the type of ammunition. The rate of fire can be up to 18 rounds during a minute and 40 rounds during 5 minutes. The ammunition capacity is 80 rounds.

The secondary armament consists of a 12.7 mm anti-aircraft NSVT MG mounted on a cupola at the rear of the casemate and a 9M113 Konkurs (AT-5 Spandrel NATO code name) antitank missile firing post.

Even though a limited number has been built, there are many small differences between the vehicles, in particular on the casemate.

The crew comprises a vehicle commander, a driver and two mortar crew members.
