The 39M mortar was a German 5cm Leichter Granatwerfer 36 designed by Rheinmetall-Borsig in the mid 1930s. Although it was a standard German light infantry mortar due to its complexity and weight, it was gradually withdrawn from front line service in 1942 and supplied to second-line units as well as Royal Hungary Army.
The mortar provided support to the infantry platoon or section, allowing them to engage targets that were beyond the reach of hand-thrown grenades.
