    2B11 120mm mortar on pickup trucks + UAV with laser rangefinder

    What if we take a UAV (with GPS / GLONASS), good optics and a thermal imager and a laser rangefinder. UAV coordinates + distance to the target (taking into account the height of the UAV) with the help of a rangefinder should get - target coordinates. which are immediately transferred to

    Rotating pallet pickups with extremely accurate digital compass, GPS / GLONASS. From the coordinates of the pickup truck and the obtained coordinates of the target, using the tablet, immediately get the direction (set by the pallet and fixed) and the angle of the mortar (taking into account the tilt of the pallet (pickup) on the ground).
    The flying operator simply fixes the targets whose coordinates are transmitted by 6 - 12? pickup trucks, which can be in different places within the capabilities of the mortar. Each mortar receives a list of targets and fires each with one 120 mm mortar. The aiming speed on each target can be less than 20 seconds. For each target, 6 minutes will arrive from different directions (according to various calculations) in an extremely compressed time. But most importantly, the ammunition is not high-precision, but ordinary 120 mm mines.
