IRA weapons haul displayed by Irish Gardai

Various improvised weapons on display which were recovered in the Republic of Ireland during 2014-2015. Included are horizontal mortars and components, a beer keg bomb and two makeshift rockets, obviously reminiscent of the ‘Al Qassam’ models frequently used by Hamas militants.

    never heard of a horizontal mortar. Are they supposed to be extra evil or something?

    • in general no, though the use they can be put to often is seen as such. Horizontal Mortars are basically devices that use a mortar style propulsion (or even munitions) but instead of fired from a slanted vertical tube for indirect fire, they are fired from a horizontal tube, often shoulder-fire. basically they are mortars than can be used as grenade launchers or anti-vehicle weapons. improvised weapons of the type are common weapons for ambushes of vehicles or attacks on buildings.
