Members of a Ranger Mortar Platoon fire a mortar during training in Afghanistan.

Each Ranger battalion includes a Battalion Mortar Platoon which may employ 81mm and 120mm mortars.

Mortars can fire a range of ammunition, including high explosive, white phospherous, smoke and illumination rounds.

Ranger rifle companies also feature a Mortar Section within their Weapons Platoon.

These are typically armed with 60mm M224 mortars.
