with 3 Mortar sections, Observer team & Command team.
Most Schützen battalions have a weak machine-gun platoon in each company and a further company of two machine-gun
platoons and a battery of six 8cm sGW34 schwere Granatwerfer heavy mortars.
However, some Panzer divisions have a full machine-gun platoon in each Schützenkompanie. These divisions place their mortar platoon in the battalion’s heavy company instead.
Regardless of where in the battalion the mortars are found, their role is the same—they give the Schützen heavy firepower at their beck and call. When the infantry run into machine-guns, the mortars pin them down or blind them with smoke as the infantry assaults.
In Flames Of War
The 8cm GW34 mortar can be used to pin down enemy infantry or cover an advance with a well placed smoke bombardment.
