8cm Mortars

by Lewis Roberts


The 8cm mortar was the standard mortar in the Third Imperium. Many worlds produced rounds for it at many different tech levels. The mortars are quire common throughout the wreckage of the Imperium and many worlds continue to produce rounds for it. In the Reformation Coalition, the 8cm mortar is sometimes installed on a convertable airraft. When mounted on a vehicle, the mortar requires a crew of two. Otherwise it requires a crew of three.

These designs were reversed engineered from Striker II
