IF042 Folgore Fire Team
King and Country IF042 Folgore Fire Team
A kneeling NCO firing his Beretta sub machine gun is ably supported by 2 x riflemen. Note the specially designed loose and practical uniforms worn by the Folgore and their Italian paratroop helmets.
It’s an unfair assumption that ALL Italian soldiers during WW2 were badly-led, under-equipped and ill-suited to military life.
Among the finest WW2 soldiers of that conflict were the paratroopers of the ‘Folgore’ airborne division. Their ‘esprit de corps’ and fighting abilities were praised and valued by none other than Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, who considered them some of the best and most reliable in the Afrika Korps.
The above price is the US$ RRP and A$ price will be calculated at time of purchase.
