I cant agree with Naval Being the most effective area weapon. After a few days in a GC usually (if your off the beaches) Naval is of no use anymore. Mortars of all sizes can be used every single game no matter what. Overall they provide way more support than Naval can.
mortars because they are over rated weapon in most of the close combats remakes, it was a mass produced made to surpress as cheap light arty but in close combat its a killing super weapon...light tanks,guns,halftracks...run for cover.
Flamethrowers are the CC god weapon...however most mods seem to weaken their capabilities so i go with mortars...
In the CC2 mod(i think for cc5)the sturmtiger is probably the ultimate area effect weapon of all time, killing shermans with very indirect fire...
In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited
and found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some
of the great Close Combat mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank
all the members of our volunteer staff that have helped over
the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
