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.
