Mortarmen don’t adjust for the Coriolis!

Hello my lovelies! 😀 Did you know that no mortarman has ever adjusted for the Coriolis Effect? They would HAVE to as the constant motion of the Earth would affect the way mortarmen aim at their targets. It’s not even mentioned in this US Army Mortar manual!

Funny though, Neil Degrass Tyson claimed that the Coriolis Effect won a football game! That’s weird, isn’t it?
