Mortars make very good shock troops. After using all the mortar ammo, pick up any SMGs and MGs trough buddy aid and charge in a critial part of the battle. 

Picking up an smg however is only possible If the crewmember is equipped with a pistol only. If they have anything better they will just simply ignore it.

US 60mm mortar Crews are as far as I know exclusively equipped with M1 carbines or Garands.

Though they can put up good firepower on their own at closer ranges.

 

So on normal quick battles I always consider those crews as extra footsoldiers If the need arises. 

The mortar is light enough to not be as much of a burden in terms of mobility.

Generally if playing realistically one would keep these specialized troops in safety unless in dire emergency. 

As Stalin (or was it Hitler?) once said "We don't play realistically, we play to win."  Particularly in a QB or stand-alone battle.

Disgraceful, where's your immersion man?

As the CO of pixeltruppen, I maintain high roleplaying standards, to include typing letters of condolence to the next of pixel kin of all my fallen pixeltruppen!

I plan home visits to the fallen after a campaign.

Re immersion: Wish CM had the ability to give medals to troops or units that have done really brave things.  Or, in campaigns, the troops would gain experience from mission to mission (assuming a good level of victory)... or get promotions.
