Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743)

Parachutist Platoon (IT743)
Paracadutisti Platoon


Italy pioneered military parachuting when it resupplied divisions by air back in 1918. The Regio Esercito, the Royal Army, was amongst the first to create a parachute force. Now these veteran parachutists have created two parachute divisions, Folgore and Nembo.

Only the best of the best survive the hard training and the three combat-ready practice jumps needed to become a paracadutista, a paratrooper. These few men become a perfect combat team, ready to win victory in many battles. Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743)
Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743)
There is no room for bad officers in the Paracadutisti. Every officer has passed jump training, just like their men.
Officers are respected by their soldiers because unlike many, they stick by their men, never abandoning them, no matter how bad the situation. It is an unwritten rule among paratroopers that the officers always lead attacks from the front. Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743)
Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743) The pack contains a full-strength Paracadutisti Platoon as well as two extra command teams for use with your Company HQ and the unknown Hero.
If you get more than one platoon the extra command teams can be used to command your Anti-tank Platoons. It also includes flame-throwers for converting your Paracadutisti into Guastatori (Demolishers). Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743)
Folgore HQ & Platoon (IT743) In Flames Of War

The Paracadutisti fought hard during the battle of El Alamein and they fight hard in Flames Of War. They are rated Fearless Veteran, not coming under the umbrella of the 8 Million Bayonet rules.
They were supported in battle by their own machine-guns, mortars and 47/32 guns, as well as Fucilieri and Bersaglieri Platoons and Divisional troops.
