The Ubiquitous 60mm Mortar.

The 60mm mortar , the Type 61, a Chinese knock off, was the go to weapon of the North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong. With a range of two or more miles and an ability to fire in a looping arc over trees and structures.

The NVA could fire them fast enough so that the fire team ran after three mortars and egressed the fire spot before the first mortar landed.
