2" mortar smoke?

Post by Ari Marsson »

OK, from the rule book a smoke grenade gives a 3" diameter smoke cloud, a tank with smoke produces 6" x 3" and an off-table mortar barrage is 18" square of smoke - what size is the smoke from the British 2" mortar round?

3” same as a smoke grenade, though I think that’s generous for the latter. See section 9.4.1 top of second column, page 43.

Thanks John, I'd simply looked up the index for 'smoke', not thinking of 'light mortars'...
