Defense Technology International's Ares weblog [http://www.aviationweek.com/ares ] has several posts on convoy protection against asymmetric insurgent attacks. One post reports about Rheinmetall's highly mobile Wiesel lightweight tracked armored mortar system. This video, shot by the German defense ministry's WTD 91 test unit and made available by Rheinmetall, shows the Wiesel mortar system being tested in desert conditions in Yuma, Arizona.
