A 120mm mortar round flies out of the tube as U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ramey J. Brown (left), a section sergeant from Marshville, N.C., Spc. Tyler L. Dillon (center), a team leader from Williamstown, W. Va., and Pvt. Gabriel C. Fields (right), from Fort Worth, Texas, all mortarmen assigned to Troop C, 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry Regiment, Task Force Bandits, take cover while at Observation Post Mustang in eastern Afghanistan’s Kunar Province on Jan. 26. “It gets pretty intense sometimes when firing, especially if a firefight is going on,” said Dillon.

Looks like some pretty harsh terrain there. Mountains and snow.

Also, I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that mortar.
