The Heavy Mortar is a type of artillery piece which lobs explosive ordnance on a high-arching trajectory over long distances. While an excellent choice among and when combating unarmored infantry, they are less favored by Battle Armor troops, especially given their poor anti-'Mech capabilities. This makes them relatively rare among Inner Sphere forces, while the Clans have shown no interest in adopting these weapons for their own units.[2]
