TOE question Stryker Bn Mortar platoon

Recommended Posts

I noticed something strange while playing the 3rd scenario of the TF Thunder campaign (the one with the airfield).

For fire support you get two Strykers with 120mm mortars, but they also have a mounted 60mm mortar team each. Is this correct, it seems a bit strange to say the least.

When looking at the OOB in the editor the on-map variant of the mortar platoon looked odd as well, with mixed 120mm vehicles and 81mm teams.

Apparently it is correct. The mortar equipped strykers have 120mm mounted and either an 81 or a 60mm mortar for dismount work. Which it is depends on where in the formation they are assigned.

Thanks for the reply, so it really is just an odd TOE. However, it seems the game is unable to reflect this when the off-map variant is selected, in which case you only get one type of mortar.

Yeah, many of us were surprised when we heard it was like that. I'm not sure if having only the 120mm when off map is wrong though. The 60 and 81mm mortars are for close support and you cannot crew them at the same time.

The mortar issue when using off map is a compromise for the ToE.  As Ian noted off map would likely only have the 120mm anyway but in addition it is hard to code the ToE to use both the vehicle mortar and the dismount mortar.

As you've probably noticed in some of the QB selection the ToE can be difficult to shoehorn into the options presented.
