Was testing a map today and fired a 81mm mortar at the top armor of a static Tiger E (late). Nothing happened.

I once was able to damage the tiger on Mareth though. I asked the tiger driver if he was damaged by it, and he confirmed it

Well I also didn't check the Tiger's health. I just assumed nothing happened since no smoke was visible.

I believe ha-gos can be killed by mortar shells in one shot. Everything else could take more.

US soldiers could dent the armor of a HA-go with their rifle butts

Only on medium and light tanks as far as I've seen. Haven't found a Tiger or Panther or whatever to run into my mortar shells. Arty pierces their armor as if they were tin cans.

Oh jesus, necro thread. And he's got the same pic as me. Time to change :|

And, I can confirm killing tanks with Mortars. I have done so to a panther and a STuG before.

Makes sense - an 80-90mm mortar shell ain't just gonna bounce off and do nothing to tank, especially when the armour on the top of the turret is not going to be as thick as the front

Will have to try it out in FH2 one day - it's always a blast having a couple of mortar squads, with a pak38 coverring a position in COH and watching allied M10s get blasted to pieces by mortars :) now to re-create that in fh2 would be nice

I already seen a Tiger been blown by mortar shells on ramelle, so it's possible to damage heavy tanks as well.

I would be really proud to kill the crew of a Marder with a Mortar without blowing up the tank itself :P then rekill the new crew that jumped in the lone Marder and then repeat  ;D

Knocked out a PIV with the mortar on Brest - also taking out the crew of a Marder/half-track is becoming a bit of a speciality of mine with a rifle lol
