107mm Self-propelled Mortar Carrier M106A2.

This M106A2 has its trim vane lowered and powerplant compartment front door opened. Stowage brackets for the mortar bridge and baseplate are attached to the left side of the hull. The engine's cylindrical air cleaner is visible closest to the driver, and the differential is low and forward in the engine compartment. This M106A2 is fitted with the T130E1 single-pin tracks.

A view into the rear compartment allows us to see the mortar turntable with attachment points for the mortar itself. Ammunition stowage was provided in the sponsons over the tracks. The right rear fender could accept the mortar rotator assembly for travel, but like the bridge and baseplate on the side of the vehicle, it is not mounted here. (Photo by Richard S. Eshleman.)
