THE FIRST TIME THIS MORTIER WAS EVER ASSEMBLED OR HEARD IN AMERICA WAS AT THE VOLO AUTO MUSEUM IN 2017.
More than meets the eye
There is far more to this machine than the instruments exposed in its face. Bellows provide air for the horns and pipes.
Weighing 1.5 Tons!
A fork-lift was required to move this machine which weighs approximately the same as an automobile.
The art deco face comes off to expose the hidden instruments. The face is hand crafted and features a color changing light show.
