Soviet 82mm BM-37 Mortar

BM-37 (known also under the names M-37 and 82-BM-37) is a Soviet 82mm mortar. It was designed by N.Dorovlyov and accepted into service in 1937. The design of the mortar is based on the French Brandt system. The index "BM" means "batalyonny minomet" - the mortar for battalion service. During the World War II and postwar period this mortar was used in large quantities and was withdrawn from service only in 1970s. The BM-37 exists in several modifications, including postwar Chinese Type 53 and Egyptian M-69.
