Warlord Glide in on Horsas to Take Pegasus Bridge

October 10, 2013 by dracs

To capture Pegasus Bridge troops were brought in in large gliding Horsa aircraft. Now, to back up their release of the Battle for Pegasus Bridge box set, Warlord have released these useful gliders to bring your troops to where they are needed.

Horsa Mk I - II Box

Horsa Glider

Capable of transporting 30 troops, a jeep, or a 6 pounder anti-tank gun, the Horsas would be towed to where their contents were needed, before gliding down and landing with relative precision.

Six Horsas were used to deliver the troops who would fight for Pegasus Bridge, but they still saw a lot of use after, air lifting men and artillery across the English Channel.

Will you glide your way to victory?
