Sabot6 Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 Hi, I have a question on a 2" light mortar detachment that is currently occupying a series of fox holes 424m from a location which I'd like to area target (the maximum range for this mortar is listed as 457m). The mortar team has -1 leadership, is green and is in a rested state, and its general status is "OK". The mortar is deployed and has been in its current position for about two turns, and the mortar team hasn't moved in about 2 1/2 turns. It is also within both voice and close visual command of its platoon HQ, which is 56m away and has -1 leadership, is rested and is a veteran unit with -1 for general status ("-1 OK"). Two turns ago when I first chose "target" for this unit to an area ~445m away, nothing happened (no mortar rounds, no shots). Last turn I cleared the target and retargeted the mortar to an area target 424m away but along the same general LOS/LOF, and I finally got some rifle shots to the targeted area (but no mortar rounds). The LOS/LOF does go through two small groups of trees.... Does anyone have any thoughts as to why the mortar detachment is reluctant to use its main weapon? My only thought is that the LOS/LOF is somehow obscured (perhaps only 1--2 members of the mortar team have a clear LOS/LOF, while the soldier actually on the mortar itself is obstructed)? Thanks! 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
