11B and 11C

I am an 11c2o and i havent shot the 120mm in over 3 years due to mission requirements required in theater. you will basically either
perform a PSD type mission or just fall in doing ground pounding with every other swinging dick who goes out the wire. As for what kind of mortar system you will use depends on if you are assigned to a light medium or heavy BN. If you not good with math id go light. any other help you need feel free to ask.

There are more 11B than 11C, so most 11X become 11B. Typically the higher the ASVAB scores, the most likely to become 11C, since their job involves more math. However the selection process appears to be pretty mysterious, so a high score or a low score really does not guarantee either job.

Typically an 11C will be in a smaller fire support platoon. Most of the kicking in doors is done by 11Bs, as their larger platoon size makes the entire process easier. Plus a good deal more of their training is kicking in doors oriented. Every combat MOS should expect to be doing patrols and kicking in doors however.

11Cs are also assigned to a wider range of units. Armor and Cavalry units get assigned 11Cs as well.

Bull**** information. Both MOS require a 90+ in the CO aptitude section.

Uhh... I'd say yes and no to this part. 11C go through the same training as 11B. 11B definitely don't train to "kick in" more doors than a 11C does.

When Mortars are needed to be fired, than 11C will do 11C stuff. Other than that, its the same dumb job as 11B's.

Also, Mortar teams will fall in to other platoons when manpower is needed on patrols and such.
ok just a clarification on the 11c 11b issue i am a former 11c10 that was first assigned to a mechanized infantry unit our sole purpose as mechanized infantry was to provide indirect fire support for the 11b/11m/11h and there was no need to be on the front lines due to the range of the 4.2in/107mm mortar now as for the ones that ask if 11c kicks in doors yes they do if you are fortunate enough to be assigned to a light inf unit such as the ones at the 101st abn or the 82nd abn both these units employ light mortars(60mm) and medium duty mortars(81mm) if you are lucky you will get assigned to a line unit or rifel squad as the 60mm is much lighter and can be operated by 1-2 people because everyone carrys a round as far as asvab that is not true the qualifier for an 11c is based on their gt score wich is a 93 or higher
