5 cm leichter Granatwerfer 36, I thought this weapon fired smoke and illuminating round as well as HE, can anyone help shed some light on this for me ?

On the original query, I would have said yes to the 5-cm having HE, smoke and some form of illumination rounds as well. However, on looking round recently for German mortar 'stuff' in general, it appears that the 5-cm was used for HE only.
