all are useful, but it depends on how you use them
The mortar is expensive, but extremely potent if you can protect it. The FOB is absolutely crucial to the Brits' mid-game, so I guess it's the most "useful" emp.
The Bofors is super potent and I love it to death, but once enemy players see you have one on the field you can bet your butt it won't be getting any kills. In my experience all the Bofors does is attract a hail of mortar and I.eg shells. Against players it's ultimately not that useful.
Like the Bofors, the 17pdr is hella good at its job, but it rarely makes sense to put one down.
The problem is unless you stick them covering a control point the enemy will go round it or shell it.
One of the reasons mobile AT guns like the Achilles and archer were popular they were quick to set up and could move if things got too hot
When you think about it it is weird the British are defensive in this game when from 44 onwards they were on the offensive.
Mortar pits are very useful when you have the map presence to protect them. They are the most "offensive" emplacement.
I think the bofors is limited in usefulness more so by the things surrounding it rather than itself. You already spent 400 manpower on an emplacement in the mortar pit which amplifies your vulnerability to leigs as it is, and by not getting the at car you constrain yourself to the area around your bofors where a luchs won't kill you.
Forward base I simply don't make, both because UKF long-range indirect fire is among the game's weakest. It's too much of a risk to make it and a mortar pit, when his leigs can just bomb them both (and the infantry you're trying to heal and reinforce there) from out of range with you having no response. That is also the reason why I place the HQ glider, which is the doctrine I favour, as far back as possible.
17-pdr is a massive slowdown of your crucial teching because of its immense cost and takes up a ridiculous amount of pop, while being unavailable for offense and an easy target for leigs if it's placed anywhere it could maybe, hopefully, be useful. It strategically makes you more vulnerable to tanks, not less so, because of the constraint that making one creates on your resources.
