well.....i also encountered this king of thing since in CC2......

i think smoke shells in mortars have a killing advantage but cannot be really relied on for killing enemy soldiers....of course if you are desperate to win!!!

Many smoke rounds use white phosphorus, nasty stuff and deadly at close quarters.

Yea I have noticed in the newer versions (WaR, TLD) that smoke rounds frequently will kill a soldier, havent compared the data files yet, but do not recall this occurring in CC5 or the older versions.

In CC3 it could kill. In WW2 the allies certainly used it as an offence weapon.

Oh yes, since CC3 smokerounds have been the last resort to a mortar team. For some reason they donĀ“t use them by initiative?? Any visuals of this?

In CC5 I once killed one of my own men with a smoke shell. Since then I've been very careful when firing smoke to cover an assault.

I'm not sure how it works, but perhaps it's the direct impact of the shell? This would give a remote, but not entirely zero, chance of hitting a soldier. (similar to tanks using AP shells against infantry).

It can't have been the white phosphorus clouds, since in CC soldiers can pass right under those clouds to no ill effect.

I experienced many time smoke shell mortar:
- destroying open top vehicle.
- killing crew or inftry ( even if inftry is sneaking prudently)
- but never dommaged AT/AI gun position

So now why it happens i dont know. But it happens but it still rare
( i guess if you have 3 mortar firing at inftry you may firing all your smoke without any casualties)
And sometime you will kill 3/4 of inftry squad...

In the real life i suppose than if you receve directly a smoke shell mortard it 's normal to be injured at least.


Tout est possible ... il faut juste connaitre quand.

I have previously posted a guide about "always wearing a helmet during battle" so for the uniniated.
Posted: Mon Jan 03, 2005 12:21 pm Post subject: Blackstumps, Comanders Guide to manouvers in the bedroom    

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
No1 Always wear a "helmet" during action, remember son safety first. No2 Always keep your weapon clean, oiled and loaded ready for any instant engagement. No3 Always try to use reconn first to determine the strength of your opponent. No4 If early withdrawal is required because of overuse of the troops too early in the engagement, the commander WILL be held responsible. ( also opponent will have a psychological advantage in next battle ) No5 Remember if you're on top of the situation TAKE NO PRISONERS !! if your opponent is on top try not to move the troops around too much, it will only make your opponent more aggresive and don't beg for mercy have some PRIDE!!
No6 Never let your opponent know your weak spot as on occasion this will be exploited to ensure a quick closure to the battle. No7 The value of ambush and the use of stealth tactics at night, to slip the troops into a tight spot is not to be underestimated. However BEWARE THE COUNTER AMBUSH !! No8 If using chemical weapons to gain an advantage over opponent REMEMBER don't test them yourself!!
No9 If as a commander u have to go down then REMEMBER those that have gone before you.
No10 As commander of your troops at some stage in your career, u may have to surrender, REMEMBER theres no coming back from their.
GOOD LUCK AND GOOD HUNTING !!
