In armoured or mechanised battalions the L16 mortar is mounted on a vehicle, usually the FV 432 AFV. In light role battalions it is normally carried on a vehicle but fired from the ground. It can also be broken down and man-packed by the mortar detachment, but this is pretty unpleasant for all involved and is generally to be avoided. The ammunition in this case would be carried by the rest of the battalion - each man carrying two greenies (four bombs) in addition to his own personal kit.
