In contrast to cannon, mortars were distinguished by their distinct appearance and their unique firing principles. Mortars were situated on flat beds, resembling massive blocks of wood, and were equipped with elevating wedges that permitted the barrel to raise and fire an explosive shell at a high trajectory.
When fired correctly, the bomb would pass over fortifications and burst while still airborne, showering the adversary with shrapnel. By comparison, the howitzer combined the characteristics of both cannons and mortars.

Question: How do you ship this vehicle to me?
Answer: We coordinate shipments of large freight items - such as our wagons, carriages, and coaches - within a network of private carriers so that your freight is safely transported to your destination without transfer. These are usually coordinated as partial loads in order to save costs, so it can take anywhere between 2 days to 2 weeks to find a ride. They will be transported in enclosed vans that vary from "U-Haul" size box vans to full 53' semi trailers. Contact us for more information and freight quotes. You may also arrange your own shipping through uship.com.
Question: How do I offload this vehicle at delivery?
Answer: If you have a delivery location with a loading dock available this is your best option. However, we can also deliver to any location that a semi-trailer can access. We then recommend coordination with a towing service to use a tilt-bed wrecker truck. The vehicle can be rolled off the trailer on to the bed of the wrecker truck and it will be tilted/lowered down to the ground from there.
