AFAIK alakran is mainly designed for COIN / PEACE operations. The logistic footprint of such a system is very desiderable in order to carry a 120mm support fire to everywhere from minute 1.

I would assume in conventional terms that alakran is not ready for a high intensity conflict against a well-armed, conventional foe. But I also think that, in this decade, almost no mortar system is going to be prepared for that, giving how the near-future menaces are rising (cheap and en masse loitering ammo)
