A Commando from 3rd Company, 6th Kandak, calibrates a M242 60mm mortar at a modular demonstration Sept. 8 at the National Military Academy of Afghanistan, Kabul.

The M224 can be drop fired (conventional mode) or trigger fired (conventional or hand-held mode).

A lightweight auxiliary baseplate is used when firing the mortar in the hand-held mode.
