Mortars against vehicles

Recommended Posts

I am not sure whether this was discussed before, but i was just to lazy to search for it:gui%C3%B1o.gif 

In one of our last games the Americans attacked a German stronghold with tanks. The Germans had two mortar teams on one squad base. My friend simply peppered my beloved Shermans with mortar rounds quickly reducing them to trash (with a lot of lucky dice rolls though).

We agredd that this could not be in the game's intention and thus we went through the rules. But we found nothing that prevents a mortar to attack a vehicle in normal fire mode.

Did we miss anything?

Thx for your help

Mortars can attack tanks only in normal fire mode, except from the M10.

So with two mortar teams in a squad you should have a attack of 4.

On the other hand the tanks have their armor and additional cover from the terrain.

So I guess your friend had really lucky dices. ;-)

4 vs 4 against multiple targets are actualy quite good odds.

Historicaly mortars could, and did, take tanks out occationaly. The top of a standard tank isn't relay up to normal tank armor-thickness.
