Warlord Games have added the Polsten Cannon to their Bolt Action collection for the British Airborne to fly into their fighting in France and beyond.

BRITISH AIRBORNE POLSTEN GUN #1

This was a piece of kit designed by British, Polish and Czech inventors who were looking for a simple and easy to manufacture gun that could be used during the invasion.

BRITISH AIRBORNE POLSTEN GUN #2

Command preferred the bigger 40mm Bofurs but used this gun because it was lightweight, smaller, came in less components and could be used by the Airborne. It was sent in during Operation Market Garden and and the drop on Arnhem.

Not a bad little bit of field kit…
