The Non-Lethal Indirect Fire Munition is an 81mm mortar round. Upon arrival over a target area, the case opens and discharges 14 sub-munitions. Those sub-munitions cover an area causing a non-lethal “flash-bang” effect to suppress personnel targets on the ground without causing permanent injury. Parachutes attached to the two sections of mortar casing enable the body of the munition to fall to earth slowly, to avoid inadvertent injury to personnel below.
