I spent some time playing with mortars in 1.27 earlier today. Frankly, I’ve had my doubts that mortars would have any real impact on gameplay. While I was testing, though, I finally noticed that they have smoke rounds. Quite a few of them.
Along with other changes in 1.27, I’m starting to think otherwise. Especially after tonights fight in Merzig, I think mortars could significantly change infantry play for the better.
Maybe I just suck, but it seems pretty hard to accurately place the explosive rounds; the smoke grenades, however, you can be very handy with. I do hope we’ll have chance to add smoke emitters to tanks and scout cars etc
