Fallschirmjäger Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (GE769)

Fallschirmjager Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (GE769)

Fallschirmjäger Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (GE769)
includes four 8cm Fallschirmjäger Stummel Mortar teams, three 12cm Fallschirmjäger Mortar Teams and two Unit cards.

The Fallschirmjäger use light 8cm mortars as company and battalion mortars. These are nicknamed Stummelwerfer or ‘Stump mortar’ for their short barrels. The Fallschirmjäger found their mortars useful in breaking up American assaults on Hill 192 in Normandy, firing into the gullies where the Americans formed up. The big regimental 12cm mortars fire a heavier bombardment at a longer range than the light 8cm mortars. However, they are less versatile as they lack the capability to fire smoke screens to blind the enemy as your troops manoeuvre.

D-Day: German
The Germans had spent years building up their defences along the French coast. Behind this Atlantic Wall, a dozen veteran panzer and parachute divisions, rebuilding after desperate battles on the Eastern Front, prepared to throw any Allied landing back into the sea. On D-Day, 6 June 1944, the greatest air and sea invasion of the war crossed the English Channel to land on the beaches of Normandy. Although they were unable to throw the Allies back into the sea, the German forces held back the Allied tide for more than three months in some of the most intense fighting of the Second World War. The battle for Europe had begun in earnest.
