Podsolnuh Self Propelled Heavy Mortar – a new vehicular weapon for The Red Star

Mortar, 945mm
Mounted on the same chassis as the 315mm “Dragunov” howitzer, the Red Fleet’s 945mm “Podsolnuh” mortar is the largest mortar system currently in use worldwide. Though the crew requirements are the same as for the more common howitzer variant, loading the mortar takes twice as long (2 full rounds each with 4 loaders, 4 full rounds each with 3 loaders and 8 full rounds each with 2 loaders). The mortar can only be fired indirectly. It typically fires HE bombs.

The Podsolnuh SP mortar uses the same rules and statistics as the Dragunov SPG with only the structurally mounted 315mm howitzer maingun replaced by the 945mm mortar.

Each individual 800 kg HE bomb has a Purchase DC of 23.
