Question: The mortar squad can fire all the shells in about 1 minute, so what do they do?
For example, the 60mm mortar in our country has 5 people in a squad and carries 10 shells. The gun has a rate of fire of nearly 30 rounds per minute. Even if you add the time of the gun, it will be able to shoot all the shells in about 1 minute.
Another example is the American M224 mortar. There are only 3 people in a squad, and one person carries the artillery. Even if the other two people carry 6 artillery shells each, there are only 12 shells in total, which can light up the artillery shells in about a minute or two.
I want to ask them what to do next? Do you charge with the company or watch by the gun? If they charge together, do they charge the cannon on the back, or leave the cannon on the spot until the battle is over and then come back to fetch it?
This is the general march to carry ammunition. Unless there is a sudden encounter and it is too late to start logistics, in most cases, when entering a position or preparing for an impact, find a car squad or a migrant worker from the country to ask for other base ammunition. There are also marches without logistics interspersed tasks. At this time, the superiors will strengthen the personnel, and the other infantry will share the ammunition. Among the wreaths under the high mountains, Comrade Xiao Jin died of exhaustion without shells because he carried 82 more guns for the platoon. At position 0, 60, there are 63, 89, 93, 5 people in the team, and 3 subordinates with motorcycles. 1. Ammunition accumulation points will be established before the impact, and various ammunition will be prepared. 2. The mortar squad is in a sheltered place where the enemy’s direct fire cannot shoot, and a certain distance from the squadron is to prepare a few base ammunition. The mortar regulations are 3 passes, 2 good shots, and 1 good shot. Even if there are only 10 rounds with 60 squad backs, 5~7 targets should be hit, and the subordinate 3 gun platoons are 15~21 targets. Opposite is Ma Runlian, and the heavy weapons should be almost eliminated. Don’t forget, your infantry company has other tough targets such as 82/120 fire. In fact, they will not fight one company one after another. At least the superiors have larger caliber support weapons to strengthen. The prepared shells were finished, but the top of the mountain had not yet been attacked. This is the time to shoot the staff in charge of intelligence, which shows that the opposing force is not capable of attacking ours. Of course, the above are all motorized/airborne/mountain units. How good is the self-propelled 120 grenade installed now? The airborne is coming soon, and I have seen it all in Baicheng.
