Flames Of War – Late War: D-Day American Paratrooper Releases

 

Parachute Rifle Platoon (Plastic)

To the man, each soldiers of the parachute regiments is a highly trained and capable volunteer. They have undergone the most rigorous training available to earn their jump wings. A Parachute Rifle Company has the best troops in the US Army. They have excellent motivation, making them very reliable, and their superior training gives them flexibility in the field to ensure victory.

Parachute Rifle Company (Plastic)

All company commanders take pride in their units, but parachute company commanders take that even further. They expect more from their men and in return the officers are willing to give everything for the company.

 

Parachute 57mm Anti-tank Platoon (Plastic)

The divisional anti-tank battalion has heavier British airborne 57mm (6 pdr) guns landed in British Horsa gliders and an excellent example of inter-allied cooperation! The heavier guns give the division real punch when the panzers start rolling.

 

Parachute 75mm Artillery Battery (Plastic)

Vital to the survival of the airborne division is the air-transportable parachute field artillery battery equipped with the M1A1 75mm pack howitzer. Each gun can be broken down into nine parachute loads. These are all tied together and dropped as a single aircraft load. If all goes well, they’ll still be all together on landing. The bundles can be quickly located by the crew and assembled so as to go into action in support of the parachute infantry regiments immediately.

 

Airborne Jeep Recon Patrol (Plastic)

The divisional reconnaissance group has two glider-landed reconnaissance platoons. Equipped with machine-gun-armed jeeps, they are ideal for scouting for enemy counterattacks or as part of a mobile reserve.

 

Parachute Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (US794)

As the battle develops, you’ll want access to more and more fire support to take your objectives. Always the first to respond are the M1 81mm mortars of the battalion’s mortar platoon. Quick to deploy, mobile and accurate, it’s likely these men will have fired their whole mission before the big boys on the beach will have gotten the sand out of their radios.
