Mortars were weapons that fired explosive projectiles.
When the Third Doctor went to capture a brontosaurus, the Brigadier had his two of his soldiers set up a mortar in case he was attacked. They used the mortar when the Doctor was attacked by a tyrannosaurus rex, but it had no effect on the dinosaur. (TV: Invasion of the Dinosaurs)
