It feels as if it is the weakest mortar in game for something that costs around 300 manpower I think, cant retreat, 4 man, least damage of all mortars. When I compared every other standard mortar damage dead center on a squad (after some tests), it is around 230-240 damage with normal mortar (Wehrmacht Mortar for instance) when Le.IG 18 does around 180-190 damage having the same fire rate as any other.
Should it be more than it currently is because I personally think it is the worst Mortar in game. It has no real effect, does not have the lethal power as any other mortar, it just feels too weak, I am not too sure about the accuracy but it does not seem to have any significant difference. What are the benefits of having LeIG 18 that has a little more range when it does have significant less damage , same firerate and cant retreat. If you compare USF M1 Pack Howizter which is the best mortar in game, has way superior range and damage, wipe squads easily at times better than Russian 120mm personally.
I am not saying it should be exactly that way but currently there does not seem to have a real purpose in using Le.IG 18 compared to a Wehrmacht and other factions default mortar which does better in my experiences.
I think it needs adjustments for its poor damage and consistency. It is a bad investment, I tried it many times, and it is simply terrible in comparison to every other standard issue mortar. What do you guys think?
I will emphasise more if necessary
