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.

Finally I found a question that I can answer. I don’t know the 60 that the subject said. I am a 100 professional first gunner, part-time second or third gunner. First of all, let’s talk about 7 people in one of our gun squad, gun squad leader, one to six. No. 6 gunner, No. 6 is also the driver. We shoot 5 shells in one round. No matter whether it’s an observation shot or a small interval, it’s impossible to finish it in one minute. After commanding the position, you have to run. That’s right, it’s maneuvering with the legs on the gun. The gun squad leader is a little more relaxed. A gunner’s gun body is nearly 60 kilograms, not counting the individual carrying equipment and Kevlar, and he can move several hundred meters. I’m tired, and the standard is to build the base plate within 90s after reaching the ground, and add 60s under frozen soil conditions. After the base plate is constructed, the gun will be returned. The first and second gunners cooperate with 8-00 and 30-00. After finishing the report, the artillery squad leader gave the gauge, and then modified and aimed. After that, one shot was loaded, and after about 20 seconds, the explosion point was observed and corrected, and then another shot was made and repaired, and then three rounds were hurriedly fired. The fastest time to get off the turn is more than 4 minutes, not counting the maneuvering time (I am talking about the basic live ammunition process, fighting is a different matter!) Secondly, the small interval shooting is more time-consuming, and the coordination of the command team is required. Occupy the position (the command squad will first give the reference shooting direction), and then a brother of the command squad will give the shooting direction. It is counted as 4 guns, one gun is given three times, and the time is 3 minutes after the time is passed, and then even the chief officer Then issue instructions to the position platoon leader, the platoon leader then issues instructions to the artillery squad leader, and the artillery squad leader commands the artillery squad members to conduct coordinated targeting. It was almost 7 minutes before the first firing of the benchmark gun. The command squad would observe the explosion point, make corrections, and then make corrections for each gun. One round of firing, one round of constant velocity, one round of rapid firing, and finishing. It takes about 15 minutes. When you are done, you will immediately stop the cannon and move your position. These sets are shivering while carrying errands, and the logistics ammunition supply selection is much faster than you think, so there is no situation where there is nothing to do after the cannon. Only when you are waiting for the password to be corrected, you are playing with grass or bugs, and you can save your life manually).

But I have found a professional counterpart question. I have to answer this question without worry. I don’t want to leak the secrets, and there is nothing to leak. First of all, I want to say that I want to finish the shells in one minute? Rapid fire is possible. Rapid fire means literally, it means rapid fire. After aiming at a target and determining the parameters, fire the shells in your hand at the fastest speed. Run when there are no shells. Commonly known as the transfer of positions, I’m not talented. The Armed Police Artillery Squadron has been retired. All 82 mortars and 82 mortars have been trained. 82 Mortars have been trained. The 82 mortars have also worked. First, let’s take a look at the division of labor. The mortar squad has a squad leader. , One gunner, two gunners, three gunners, four gunners and so on. The gun squad leader is the commander of the entire artillery squad, and the brain. As for one gun to four guns, five guns and six guns…what are they doing? It has its own division of labor, which is not the same. Take our team’s artillery team as an example. The first artillery is the eye, responsible for observing and reporting the coordinate parameters, the second artillery carries the artillery, and the third artillery is the turtle immortal who is responsible for sitting on the back (also called the base). , Four-gun ammunition… According to the different terrain of the task, the four gunners can add or subtract operators afterwards, and the gunners can also exchange each other (Of course, the squad leader is always the squad leader, and the first gunner is a highly skilled gunner. Will not change) 82 shots and 120 rounds of a base number of ammunition. In view of the current battlefield situation, the role of this barrel artillery has become less and less (cannons are needed for artillery, and mortars are wasteful for those that do not.) Mortars have long become a kind of firepower compensation. They may be useful when hitting bunkers, bunkers, and tunnels. Most of them are sneak attacks, and they run away. So the ammunition that can be carried will definitely not be full, generally only Several rounds and dozens of rounds vary, and the shooting process is relatively slow. The gun squad leader observes the target and reports the coordinates. After one shot is aimed, the target parameter check is repeated. After the shot is finished, the target parameters need to be reported again. If you want to finish the shot in one minute, press The normal firing rate is unlikely. Unless it is a rapid fire, it is a highly mobile unit that shoots one shot and changes one place. You must be ready to run away at any time. After the few shots are finished, why don’t you wait for the food? Waiting for the fire on the other side or waiting for someone to give you a shot? Generally, after the shooting, observe the target. If the target is not completely destroyed, one shot will report the squad leader “the target is not destroyed!” The squad leader immediately revises the target coordinate parameters, and another shot. If the target has been destroyed, “the target has been destroyed!” Then quickly stop the artillery and retreat, waiting for the rear troops to determine your position and want to run too late! Report the situation of the superior task, the wind is screaming! When our mortar-professional chief secretary taught us, he kept yelling “Hurry up! Hurry up! This is for a sneak attack! You won’t be able to run if you don’t get caught!” Of course, we usually train. Back to training, but the squadron has always used us as a mobile squadron. What is a mobile squadron? Wanjin oil, where is the need to move, after all, in the city there really is a big event that requires the use of cannons, we are definitely not enough.

The theoretical rate of fire/burst rate of fire is not equal to the actual rate of fire. Mortars (to be precise, most artillery) are always fired. Follow-up shots after calibration also need time to calibrate. These processes all take time. And generally speaking, the problem can basically be solved by hitting a target with a mortar. As for hitting a target that can’t be beaten by a base number. Why use a chicken knife to kill a cow? Call the rear artillery/air force fire support. As for a base number after lighting up. Maybe we need to find the ammunition supply truck.

“Are there any shells?” “Yes. But, commander, we only have two shells.” “What are you talking about, mother, you’re a prodigal son, why don’t you save some use.” “Commander, you have to speak with your conscience! When the devil attacked just now, that was the most ferocious thing you shouted, Pillar, kill me that heavy machine gun; Pillar, you fucking blind, throw it away The cartridge was blown up for me. This will make you deny it again. I think I was wasting it.” “You kid still dare to complain, be careful that I beat you. Hey, when the battle is over, I will reward you with half a catty of sweet potatoes.” When it was finished, I went to burn sweet potatoes.

Under normal circumstances, the shells can’t be shot at all? The cooking class is cooking in the pot 24 hours a day? When the firearms classes are stepped down, they are usually divided into two groups of 4+x, with 4 people coming out. x These unlucky children who can’t even burn a fire stick with their bare hands squat behind and fight the landlord with peace of mind? As long as there are forward and backward delivery channels, there is no such thing as being unable to help. Before the war, we will find a safe place to build a stacking point, and reserve all kinds of ammunition materials according to the base number, and only people will pick it up during the war. In addition, the weapon depends on the actual rate of fire… If you don’t aim or shift your position, is it waiting to be a target for the opponent or is there too much ammunition? And where to find so many targets to get bombed, the standard two rounds are good. If the first round is surrounded, if you run out of ammunition and food, you must find a way to switch to infantry. After all, most people in the firearms squad don’t have this. Stuff. It really can’t work, I can only take the kitchen knife and counterattack. (Above 40 years ago, it has nothing to do with today

Haha, I feel that I have encountered a professional problem. First of all, the firepower of the mortar unit as an accompanying infantry unit is increased. It does not mean that it hulls at the beginning. The so-called good steel is used on the blade. The infantry’s bullets are easy to install and can’t stand the trigger and not let go. You can’t fight for a few minutes. Speaking of this, you have to mention what the mortar squad is used for. For offensive purposes, it is usually a fire attack to buy time for the infantry so that the infantry can attack. It is an irregular harassment of the enemy’s defense, then there will be no situation where the hula la is finished, and then the defense will block the enemy. Defensive, there must be a stable position. Generally, there is not too little ammunition, so it doesn’t matter the parameters of 60 mortars. I vaguely think that what you said is wrong, whether it is the amount of ammunition carried or the rate of fire, 30 rounds per second, with the courageous hand of the skillful man, has been filling the muzzle all the time. The shooting process still needs to be corrected, so the speed will be too slow. It’s better to use the limit rate of fire than to throw it as a grenade like Call of Duty… This is probably not a nonsense, one minute of gun time can be done, but the shooting needs to be measured. Ranging correction and the like. But I haven’t learned how to use the level of the squad. Considering that the range of the mortar is generally 5 kilometers, there is no need to be too close, so in theory, you don’t need to follow the charge. You don’t have light weapons. There are two types of detachments, battalion and company. They really fight, and then they reach the area before the impact. Of course, the shooting is complete. It is the idea to supply ammunition to support the battle. However, in the school, the infantry rushes towards the hilltop artillery… Hilltop.

The theoretical rate of fire of the rifle is 450 to 600 rounds per minute. An infantry marching on foot cannot carry 600 rounds of ammunition on the battlefield. Therefore, if you continue to fire for one minute at most two minutes, you will get into the predicament of no bullets. The police are even worse. With six bullets from a revolver, you can go home without stopping for five seconds. Of course, if the enemy lined up in front of an infantryman to let him shoot, he would kill himself after the bullet was hit. One person changes more than two hundred people a minute. The problem is that the enemy is hiding, no one can see it, you shoot a hairy? Still want to finish the ammunition? You may not be able to finish the ammunition before you die! The drone flying over from the opposite side is a five-kilogram guided bomb which fired three consecutive shots from a distance of 155 10 kilometers and landed on the ground at the same time. The shrapnel ground covered you like rain and kept firing, emphasizing the continuity of firepower? Wake up, it’s not 1919, it’s 2019!

Go back and get the ammunition. In “Blood Battle Pacific”, Sledge was the mortar squad. The rookie made a mistake and a box of shells was damp. The platoon leader’s order was to immediately go down the mountain to the ammunition depot to pick up the shells. During the replenishment process, one of their squad died. In addition, when there is no shooting mission, the mortar squad must charge with others. In the ninth episode, the frontline is not enough, the platoon leader asks the mortar squad to take the rifle to the front, and the gun stays behind.

There are many more things, as a big soldier. Carrying shells, digging positions and repairing fortifications. After receiving an offensive order, fire a shot. After the attack is completed, move the position and continue to carry the shells, dig positions and repair fortifications. Go out to stand guard, take turns repairing fortifications, repairing bunkers, repairing positions, and collecting garbage and picking feces daily. When the enemy’s firepower is covered, people must be sent to the front to fight the attacking enemy. They must be scattered in batches and not too scattered. They must be divided into blocking and support. The ones in the front are dead and the ones in the back are on top. To defeat the enemy or be destroyed by the enemy group. When our firepower covers the enemy’s position, it is the time for the infantry units such as mortars to attack. Food and ammunition must be prepared a few days in advance, and a meeting will be held in the bunker to allocate detailed combat tasks. Some people will be dispatched a few minutes before the start of the battle to use their lives to test whether the firepower of the enemy’s position is consistent with the intelligence of the previous investigation. As long as the enemy has a reaction on the position, our heavy fire coverage will come. After covering the enemy’s position, the offensive officially begins. You must pinch the point to enter the predetermined position, accurate to a few minutes and a few seconds. If you go early, you will be killed by friendly fire. If you go too late, the enemy will organize a counterattack to prevent you from approaching the predetermined position. Arrived at the predetermined location. Set up mortars on the swaying ground, listen to the fire points you need to knock down in the sound of the earth-shaking cannons, use your cannonballs to attract the attention of the enemy, and cover the front infantry squad to attack the position. At this time, if you are still alive and your teammates have not taken the position, then you have to prepare to retreat, and then brave the enemy’s bullets to retreat back to your position. It’s luck again! If you win the position, you must work hard to repel the supporting enemy while seizing the time to use severely insufficient manpower to repair the enemy’s position into your own position. Simply put, it is to change the direction of repair, and also depends on luck and physical fitness. . After this set of work is completed, it will start a dull day again. Continue to carry artillery shells, repair positions, repair fortifications, repair bunkers, stand guard, collect garbage, and pick up manure.

If it is a group battle, there will be logistical supplies. The base numbers provided by the logistics cannonballs can kill you to death. If it is a small continuous platoon unit engaged in special operations, take the initiative to pursue or ambush. After bringing a certain number of cannonballs, they will not all be lighted up. If the action fails and needs to retreat, the artillery can take cover. If it is forced to break through, the artillery and artillery shells will be kept until the last moment. During the breakthrough, the artillery and artillery mounts will be destroyed, and the infantry will carry out counter assaults.
