  • Commando Mortars can only be created in a glider HQ.
  • Commando Mortars operate in the same way to American and German mortars.


The Airlanding troops of the British Airborne were tasked with assaulting German positions prior to the D-Day landings. They landed their gliders in Coup de Main assaults on enemy positions, surprising the German defenders in risky attacks. They were all volunteers, and well-trained for their dangerous job, and continued to act as elite ground infantry once the airborne operations were over.

The MK.II ML 3" mortar was the standard mortar of the infantry battalions. It's performance was similar to the American M1 81mm and the German 8cm GrW34.

The Commandos in Company of Heroes are actually Airlanding troops from an Airborne Division, or SAS (Special Air Service) Commandos. Their distinctive red berets indicate they're airborne troops, or SAS troops, as Commandos wore green berets. Commandos came from several branches (Royal Army Commandos, Royal Marine Commandos, and Royal Navy Commandos) and none were involved in glider operations.
