Battlefront features Greatcoat Mortar Platoon

Battlefront continues to show off their new greatcoat-wearing units with a look at the new mortar team.


From the article

While the mortar platoons of the Allied armies have just two tubes, the German equivalent has six 8cm GW34 mortars. This gives the commander of a German infantry battalion timely and flexible local artillery support in a way that the Allies cannot match.

Although the mortars are nominally under the direct control of the battalion commander, this firepower is made available to the individual rifle company commanders.
