Do mortars and infantry guns effect command die rolls? I am imagining an infantry battalion advancing after dropping off their mortars and infantry guns. As the battalion advances the BN HQ gets farther and farther away from their infantry support units listed above. Will the distance be taken into consideration during command rolls? Or is it like recce in that distance isn't considered when making a command roll?

IIRC there is no command penalty for distance to mortars, but can't remember if it's the same for IGs, but I think it is. Sadly I don't have the book to hand to double check.
