Sabot6 Posted November 23, 2012 Share Posted November 23, 2012 I'm curious why a German 81MM mortar team cannot directly target a TRP to which it doesn't have direct LOS, but instead needs an in-contact HQ unit to successfully launch the mission through the "artillery support" window (i.e., going into the HQ's artillery support window to schedule the barrage with the mortar team, rather than having the mortar team itself target the TRP directly without intervention or support from the HQ unit)? I'm not complaining or suggesting that there's a bug or anything; rather, I'm just curious as to what the RL reasons are for this. Is is something like only HQ units have the coordinates to the TRP and the mortar teams do not (and if so, would the reason for this be the need for higher command intervention before an artillery mission is launched at a location out of LOS)? Thanks! Sabot6 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
