The first set to set your peepers on is this 47mm Anti-Tank Platoon which will allow you to put down some covering fire to support your advancing force and maybe even plug a few holes in Allied tanks at the same time.
The real focus of this set of releases, however, looks towards a set of infantry with all manner of weapon options. Here you have the standard Bersaglieri Rifle Platoon but you can also get your hands on the…
…Bersaglieri Weapons Platoon which adds more special weapons for your force. The rule seemed to be that your squad would have fewer men and more weapons. It certainly meant that you were getting a lot more specialists who could use all manner of guns on the fly.
Specialists were also needed of course and that’s where you turn towards the operators of some of the larger weapons like those in the Bersaglieri MG & Mortar Platoon.
As a reminder, all of these models are metal throughout these sets. It’s a bit of a shame that we’re not seeing plastic releases here with the increased detail we’ve come to expect from Battlefront but maybe that will be something they look at down the line.
Last but not least we have the Bersaglieri Assault Engineer Platoon here who are going to be good when you need to assault an enemy position. They come with explosive charges and heavy weapons for cracking defensive nuts.
Have you been won over by the Italians as a force of choice in Flames Of War and World War II?
