thejetset Posted March 9, 2012 Share Posted March 9, 2012 Hi all. I was wondering if someone could verify this with real-life WWII tactics?? I've noticed that the 2" mortar seems to be a lot less accurate than the US counterpart (60mm mortar) at ranges over 200m. Actually, it is less accurate at all ranges ... but >200 seems to be the real breaking point. Therefore, I've found that my Commonwealth tactics have evolved into keeping the 2" mortar team much more integrated with the platoon. With the US forces, I usually have the 60mm mortar team fairly back in depth. They can lob rounds over the front line or even go indirect if necessary with their platoon or company commanders. Even with the 1.10 patch, 60mm rounds at 500+ meter range are still accurate enough to nail about any soft target after a few shots. With the CW forces, things seem to be different. I've found that you really need to get the range down below 200 or 250 meters to have a decent shot at neutralizing the soft target with those 12 HE rounds. (nothing worse than THINKING you KO'd a HMG or field-gun behind a hedgerow and finding out that ... "oops ... not quite" when advancing the platoon forward.) Therefore, I've found that I play CW platoon level tactics by keeping the 2"mortar team right in together with my Base of Fire. (the guys with the Brens). ... or at the very most a couple of meters behind them. Small difference, but it makes for some pretty distinct tactical differences between the way the US forces and CW forces are played. That and the rifle firepower (M1 vs. Enfield) output difference. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
