Airborne 3-inch Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (BR815)
includes six Plastic 3-inch Mortar teams and one Unit card.
With six tubes at their disposal, the airborne mortar platoon is quite effective. Landing by glider, the platoon is quickly ready for action, providing the company with its own integral, highly mobile and accurate light artillery asset. Mortar bombs fly in a high-arcing trajectory, soaring over friendly troops and intervening terrain, to drop down onto the target from above. Unlike most other infantry weapons, they cannot conduct direct fire.
