Default Griffon Mortar Question

Heya.

Once again I have a question! :P Okay, so I was looking up the Griffon in Chapter Approved, when I noticed the Griffon Mortar says it's a "Ordnance 1" What does this mean?

Does it mean it only fires a single shot? Or is it a Large Blast/Ordnance template?

Thanks.

No. Its not a single shot weapon, as it does not state "one use only"

(at least i think)
