Hey Sean. For some random reason, I was looking in the version history of FF, and I noticed that version 4 had Japanese knee mortars. Are those the same as the Mark 89 Grenade Dischargers? I couldnt find a squad with a "knee mortar."
I think they are. If I remember correctly the Japanese themselves never referred to them as 'knee mortars', that was rather a nickname the Americans gave them because they looked a bit like they were intended to be fired from the thigh. A misconception that appearently made for quite a few gruesome accidents when Marines decided to give that a try...
