MakeupEdit

NCO

The Mortar Squad, like most squads, is commanded by an NCO. This NCO, however, stays well forward of his soldiers in an Observation Post. He uses either a telephone set or a radio to communicate with his mortars, and he observes their shot and how far or short the shots fall. He also communicates with other squads in need of Mortar Support, and they can help him observe the mortar fall.
