The Mortar is a premium unit, requiring Nanopods to produce. It is a decent choice as it sports high range and splash damage, but as the player levels up and unlocks the Light Artillery, the Mortar Truck, and the Heavy Artillery, the Mortar will become useless. The splash damage can be useful to kill off enemies who have low health without wasting multiple turns. Through a mission, one will receive a Mortar for free early in the game.
