I'm pretty interested in the manual fire option. There's a trigger on the handle that allows the operator to fire it without dropping the round down the tube.

Don't our current 60mm's have that?

Yup.  But oh man, where to begin...

Single-manned mortars fired off of the small baseplate are cool and all, but using something with just over 1,000m range is giving up a lot of capability in the trade-off for lower weight.  Good for some applications, but I'd much rather have a single three-man team attached to a platoon, with an M224.  Better rate of fire, more ammo, etc.

It is better that they do it imperfectly than that you do it perfectly. For it is their war and their country and your time here is limited.
