I wanted to dicuss the soviet mortar. This mortar is the most lackluster mortar in the game imo. Its rof is dreadfull and on top off that it cant hit anything really. Its barrage is nothing special and the smoke barrage as well. Plus the flares are just to expensive imo.
Dont worry i am not aiming to get the precision strike back.
I want to buff its utility. Since its only good at forcing off a static unit with the threat off near hits and causing no bleed whatsoever. I want to reduce the recharge of its smoke ability.
This will only add utility and incentive to build the mortar in the first place.
Countering mg42 spam openings without outright wiping them.
Allow cons to close in the late game without taking staggering losses on aproach.
Save a tank being snared more often with smoke.
Please share your thoughts and ideas on this.
