The Spanish Army's decision to equip its forces with mortars provided by Elbit Systems was made after a series of successful tests in both Spain and in Israel.

Elbit Systems will be the lead contractor for the project, which will include the installation of CARDOM autonomous recoil 81mm mortars mounted on the back of VAMTAC 4x4 vehicles produced in Spain by UROVESA and with the participation of local industries.
