Soviet medium mortars

With the release of Red Bear, and the changes made to medium mortars in Version 3 (now having a direct fire stat), I quickly tore open my blister of soviet medium mortars (generously donated by Dale from Panzerwerks Studio) and got to painting!  There's not a whole lot to say about these guys- I have no idea what "era" the figures are.  I know people are very particular about that, but I found them to be easy to paint and quite like the end result.  It was easy to knock these guys out in just a few hours.  Hoping they'll be a solid, and inexpensive option to support my red infantry for the Motherland!


FROM WIKIPEDIA
The 82-pm-41(Russian82-Полевой Миномёт-41), M-41 or the 82-mm mortar Model 1941 (Russian82-мм миномет обр. 1941 г.) was a Soviet 82 millimeter calibre mortar developed during the Second World War as an infantry battalionmortar, and which begun production in 1941.[1] It was differed from Model 1937 by the presence of a removable wheel base, by the arched construction base plate (as in 107-mm and 120-mm mortars), and also a different two-legged construction. Wheels were slipped over the semi-axis of the bipod feet and removed during firing.[2] Design improvements were subordinated to the technological possibilities of production and directed toward the reduction in the weight of mortar, labour expenses of its production and improvement in the manoeuvrability characteristics

Heavy mortars are also a good choice for the Soviets. The extra range is nice and the 3+ firepower gives them more damage potential against dug-in enemies.
Nonetheless, any template weapon with rerolls to range-in is good since the vast majority of your historical foes will be Veteran (and often concealed and GTG).
