Love it, Charlie won't know what's hit him.

It's a really nice duo.

You can see the tube and baseplate's weight.

But with mortars it's the ammo that counts…

Asked on another conversation, but how widely was the 60 used? I've read completely contradictory accounts/assertions. For table top purposes should we see it as a rarity or SOP? A contemporary documentary (Hill 943) describes the company being tracked as having 114 men in 4 platoons, 16 squads…..|Units are never up to strength of course, but should we think in terms of each platoon having 3 rifle squads and a mortar squad? Should we even think of a mortar squad or rather of a team of 2/3 guys? Or maybe (in effect) a mortar platoon? We like out games to function at the 'company in attack/platoon in defence' level.
