Is it correct to assume that the last paragraph of 20.1 does NOT preclude using direct fire with an onboard mortar to place a starshell or is it intended to be placed only with indirect fire?

ps. I have read the other thread concerning mortars and I ignore any reference to spotting rounds.

Well darkness limits LOS to 2 hexes, and most (all?) mortars in the game have a minimum range of 2 hexes .. so the only Direct Fire available for a Starshell is going to be exactly 2 hexes away.

I'd say this would use the normal Direct Fire placement rules.

That's what I figured. It wouldn't make sense to limit a mortar to indirect fire only. Also a unit that fires at night is Spotted to be fired at.
