Figure 4 carrier 2" mortar section lying down crew from Stonewall with some conversion to give them a more Mediterranean appearance 

Figure 5 - Difficult to use in Battlegroup the British and commonwealths carrier sections are a unique feature of these armies. 
I use these as rapid response troops. Using them to seize objectives and then use mortar support to hold until reinforced. Or in defence as a reaction force to delay enemy attacks of make quick counter attacks with the Universal carriers excellent off road manoeuvrability.
