The Austro-Hungarian army commission 30.5cm M1911 mortar because they wanted to be able to smash the Italians fort,They later would help the German assault Liege and French fort.

What role did these mortars played in the Eastern front? The Austrian keep ordering more of it during the war.

I would say providing heavy artillery support for the KUK Armee in the east. See Austria-Hungary's Last War 1914-1918 the official history which is online for the deployment of the batteries equip with weapon.
