It's also used by Australia, although I think they give it their own F number.

'Entered service in 1970s'? Really, in that case the one I saw being used on active service by the Brit Army in 1966 must have been an illusion - I blame the additives in the tea.

Certainly used in action in Rhodesia in the 1970s. But I wonder whether it was a different model - they had been refurbished in South Africa. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:39, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

there was one present, someone decided to remove it since it was unsourced ....
anyways i have re added india to list of operators. the locally manufactured OFB 81mm mortar is a license built copy. considering the guys who removed the user list left the indo-pak war in the infobox wars section, seems like someone made an oversight in not re adding india.

I do believe that these are in use with the Norwegian army. Anyone who knows for certain? Spearman (talk) 02:40, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Max/Effective range[edit]
