Hi Gang,

I wonder which units of the US Army are equipped with M326 Mortar Stowage Kit? Looks like an easy kit bash of MR Modellbau M120 mortar and SKP M1101 trailer.

Looks like at least some National Guard units use it

All hope is not lost

"U.S. paratroopers, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, fire a 120mm mortar system at the 7th Army Training Command's Grafenwoehr Training Area, Germany, Jan. 28, 2017. ":

Damn Frenchy, now I have to build it! I hope the trailer will be on Grafenwöhr Volksfest next year.
