The Stokes Trench Mortar is a level 3 standard Mortar Infantry unit unlocked in the Industrial Age. Its predecessor is Guard Mortar and can be upgraded to the Field Mortar.

Historical Description[edit | edit source]

As a response to the stalemate in the Western Front during WWI, Englishman Sir Wilfred Stokes developed the first man-portable tactical mortar that bears his name, the Stokes Trench Mortar. This weapon was more effective than conventional artillery at bombarding trenches and was particularly useful for killing enemy infantry. Trenches were often dug in zig-zag fashion to minimize the effects of a direct hit on a single segment of the line.
