The Brandt 60 mm Long Range gun-mortar is a breech loading mortar capable of firing on a flat trajectory. It was developed from the Brandt Mle CM60A1 and resembles a long-barrelled, long-ranged variant of that weapon.
The gun-mortar can fire the standard infantry 60 mm bomb; but, to give the weapon increased anti-armour capability, it is also provided with a high-velocity fin-stabilized armour-piercing shot and a fin-stabilized shaped-charge bomb.
