The 81 mm Illuminating Mortar Bomb ILL 81 and ILL 81LD is intended for artificial illumination of the target area for the purposes of reconnaissance, firing, supporting the fire of anti-tank means and for execution of other tactical actions on the battlefield.

The payload of the bomb is a movable illuminating system consisting of a parachute system and an illuminating flare.

After the ejection of the illuminating system over the target, flare descent is smooth and slow due to the parachute system, and its spiral motion provides maximum illuminating effect during the whole time of flare burning.
