Firing Over Obstacles

Recommended Posts

If a mortar team (or its spotter) can see an object like a hedgerow or a building, can the mortar fire just on the other side of that obstacle? Surely possible in real combat, no?

Yep. And CMBN allows this, to a degree -- on map mortar teams are allowed to target areas slightly beyond their LOS, such as the far side of a wall or hedgerow.

You can see this in action for yourself if you put (for example) an HMG on an action spot and try to target the far aside of a tall wall, and then try the same with an on-map mortar in the same position.
