Sounds ridiculous, I know, but bear with me.

Chinese normal corps have 54 81mm mortars in their TOE with anti-armour value of 3. Suppose the corps loses all of its AT guns and 75/105mm field guns and retains all of its mortars. Now, if such a corps fights a Japanese tank unit, will the mortars shoot at the attacking tanks? Is their anti-armour value used in fire calculations for direct fire?

I do not think you can observe it in sandbox tests, but I was thinking maybe someone with the knowledge of WITP:AE code can answer this question?

Yes.

Basic rule for WitP AE land combat: Everything (capable of shooting ground targets) shoots at everything.

Now, here's a more important question: Do boy scouts pee on snakes?

Nope. The only reptiles that Boy Scouts will urinate on are 2 meter tall bipedal lizards. It's one of the requirements to become a Space Dragon Scout.

As a newbie to these threads I was looking at all the posts on WITE AE, some near half million. Now understand what it's all about.
