A highly mobile, rapid strike force like G.I. Joe can't depend upon slow, ponderous artillery to keep up with them. They need to bring their own fire-support with them in the form of a high-powered mortar, but a mortar man in the field can only carry a limited number of shells, so he had better be able to make every shot count! DOWNTOWN can judge range and trajectory just by eyesight. If he knows where the target is, he can hit it!
"If Downtown sets up his mortar in the parking lot of a ballpark, and had a spotter sitting in the bleachers, he could put a round on the second base bag within two attempts! Downtown picked up his name playing high school basketball. He didn't have the height for slam-dunks, but he had a reputation for never missing a foul-shot!"
