While this is true, mortars are also (in the WWII period) likely to respond faster to calls for fire than artillery, and their bombs are more effective for a given bore than an artillery shell.

I'm not sure what to do about rockets. I probably would not make a distinction between towed and SP artillery for mass combat -- that's more of a strategic distinction than tactical one. Anti-tank and infantry guns, which are normally fired directly, are a different situation, which I haven't my up my mind on yet.
How do they come out if calculated like vehicles with no speed?
