    Dedicated Vehicle for Mortar Crew

    Recommended Posts

    So, I just learned that in order to have a mortar, you need two things; a folded bipod and a folded mortar tube. Both are in backpack form; however, you can just carry one. Unless you get a vehicle and load those two in.

    As far as I know, there is no vehicle that have those two in its inventory. It is a bit of a hassle to go back and fort to a virtual arsenal just to load those things in.

    I'm suggesting a dedicated vehicle (prowler/qilin/hunter) in the vehicle spawn area that have at least 2 mortar bipods and 2 mortar tubes in it.

    The vehicle inventory editor can solve this problem very easily. Look for the spaces marked "Inventory" in the car park and crate area to use them.

    I tried, but; it wouldn't load the mortar

    The vehicle likely didn’t have space for it.

     

    In future I would use the Cargo Van, as it can fit something like 20 tubes in it.

    1. Find vehicle of choice
    2. Go to Vehicle Inventory area
    3. Find the ammo boxes within the barriers
    4. Load the ammo box full of mortar tubes and bipods
    5. Drag/carry the crate and load it into the vehicle (Scroll-wheel option)
    6. Drive to mortar position
    7. Unload crate
    8. Take tubes and bipods out of Inventory of ammo box
    9. Setup mortar
    10. ???
    11. Profit

    For those who don't know you can Tow mortars with Pickups or the small civie truck and have a mobile mortar position that way.

    Good point Goose. will have to try that next time i'm in the mood to make it rain. that said, you still have to setup out at the AO becuase you cant assemble things at the airfield.

    I totally support @War Machine's point. the MK6 gunner spot is the only one that isn't set up to get right into the fight and i definalty support a dedicated vehicle being there ready to go. One of the major frustrations with the role is having to spend all that time getting the gear ready before you have to drive out. god helpyou if it's sofia, Oreokastro or feres. even more frustrating is that some of the cars wont even load in backpacks when they are empty (looking at you quillin)

    I'm definatly in support of either a truck or 4wd with one setup in the tray, or at least the backpacks already stashed in a vehicle.

     

     

    that said, if i had an option, i'd have the below setup with the recon nyx.....

    It doesn't actually have to be this vehicle even just an off-road with attachto would do the trick.
