BFMGE568 Miniatures Pack

The 12cm heavy mortar gave German infantry units a support weapon with greater firepower than other mortars commonly in service at the time such as the 8cm GW42 medium mortar. At the end of the Normandy campaign, the Fallschirmjäger units replaced their old 10.5cm NbW35 heavy mortars with the 12cm sGW43 heavy mortar. This made ammunition supply easier and increased its effectiveness in combat.

In Flames of War

Used in conjunction with medium mortars, the sGW42 heavy mortar can assist in your attempts in setting up an assault against a difficult target. The high explosive from the heavy mortars combined with the smoke from the medium mortar provides the ability to pin the enemy and provide concealment for your own troops.

Range 56”/140cm; Anti-tank 3; Firepower 3+
