Glider Pilot Platoon SMG Team (BR808) Gammon Bombs

All teams in a Glider Pilot Platoon carry Gammon Bombs giving them Tank Assault 3.
Body Armour

The 1st Airborne Division used the majority of the army’s limited number of body armour sets. These were primarily given to the Glider Pilot Regiment to protect them against Flak. The armour would not stop bullets, nor could it afford much protection in closequarter fighting. Instead it was designed to protect the wearer from shrapnel and other flying debris.

Glider Pilot Platoon Command SMG Team (BR808) All teams in a Glider Pilot Platoon are equipped with body armour. When a team with body armour is hit by an Artillery Bombardment and fails its Infantry Save, immediately roll a die:

On a result of 6, the team’s body armour has saved it from harm and it is not Destroyed.

Otherwise, the team is Destroyed as normal.
