The Commandos a fundamentally a light infantry force and their missions call for them to be able to move quickly and quietly about the countryside unencumbered by heavy equipment.
The 3” Mortar and Vickers machine-gun are ideal for these operations. They are relatively light and easily carried by their crews, which is most important when keeping up with the light footed Commandos.
