Description

Description

With trademark red beret and armed with Sten and Bren Guns the British Airborne were determined and tenacious, as only the British Tommy can be. Striking German forces with precision and speed during actions at Pegasus Bridge, the Merville Battery and during Operation Market Garden in Arnhem, the Red Devils became legendary.

Few divisions in the British Army have earned such a valorous reputation so quickly as the Parachute Division. Known as the Red Devils by the Germans for their trademark maroon berets and dogged fighting ability, the British airborne force grew into a force to be reckoned with, whether delivered by Dakota aircraft, Horsa glider or as front line shock troops.

Drawn from all over Britain, the volunteers established an awesome reputation for daring and sheer bloody-mindedness, culminating in their heroic, but ultimately doomed, defence of Arnhem bridge in Holland.

Although comparatively lightly-armed, British Paras could dish it out and would not hesitate to close to hand-to-hand fighting if needs be, screaming their warcries as they went.

Warlord Games' British Airborne are ideal for fighting in North West Europe where they could be used to re-fight actions such as the assault on the Merville battery, the attack on Pegasus Bridge, the heroic battles of Operation Market Garden or the crossing of the Rhine and Operation Varsity.

Contains a 10-man British Airborne Section:

  • 1 NCO and three soldiers with sub-machine guns
  • 2-man light machine gun team
  • 4 riflemen
