Trench Mortar Platoon (GUS705)

Trench Mortar Platoon (GUS705)
Includes four 3" Stokes or 58mm Type 2 Mortar teams

Both our allies have provided us with trench mortars to deal with enemy pillboxes, nests, or strongpoints. The British 3” Stokes mortar can advance with our troops, while the heavier French 58mm Type 2 mortar can stay in the rear, knocking out any points of resistance we may face.

1918 saw great changes in the warfare of the Western Front. Russia pulled out of the war, freeing thousands more German troops to push the Allies back huge distances. The Allied counteroffensives, with the new tanks, evolving tactics, and the arrival of the Americans, forced the Germans back towards their own borders and defeat.

Trench Guns
Trench guns and mortars are specially designed to give the infantry their own close-support artillery. They are small enough to fit in trenches and light enough to be carried forward to assist in the assault..

Trench Guns can enter, cross, and be deployed in Trenches as though they were Man-packed guns.

Trench Guns use  medium base and face the long edge, like Man-packed gun teams.
