A specialized M113 modified to fit an 81mm mortar, and a ready source of explosive rain for PACT infantry.

In Team Yankee[edit]

The Stats

The Canadian option for a dedicated mortar platoon. Notable for being an M113 variant (and therefore a bit beefier than most other mortar carriers), but is still vulnerable to air power and counter-batteries thanks to being open-topped. A must take for supporting your infantry, since they kind of need smoke cover and targeted barrages to really get to work.

Unfortunately, Battlefront has learnt from its mistakes in the British list and your M125s are rather expensive at 1 point for 2 pieces, 3 points for 4 pieces or 8 points for 7 pieces. It may not be overpriced, but its a rather fair cost for the amount of smoke you get.
