Fallschirmjäger Parachutistes Allemands, Seconde Guerre Mondiale, 1939–1945

Fallschirmjäger Parachutistes Allemands, Seconde Guerre Mondiale 1939–1945

Fallschirmjäger wearing tropical uniform et tan aqueous camouflage smocks during the 1943 campaign. Les soldats d'équipage de canon antichar en genou sont conversions, combining body parts of two standing et two kneeling ESCI figurines. The standing figurine wears a typical bonnet de police Schiffchen allemand taken from Airfix Luftwaffe Personnel. Le fusil antichar lourd de 28 mm s.Panzerbüchse 41 is from the old Airfix Afrikakorps set. The s.PzB. 41 proved inadequate against chars moyens et lourds encountered on the Eastern Front, et many of these weapons were handed down aux forces italiennes which kept them in inventory until the Armistice en 1943.

Green Devils

As is common among professional elites, Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger et Parachutistes Britanniques developed mutual respect when they encountered eachother for the first time en Afrique du Nord. Apparently, elements of the Fallschirmjäger contingent deployed in Tunisia ignored the standing order that enemy parachutists were to be shot summarily, et they saw to it that captured et wounded Red Devils from John Frost's 2 Para were treated correctly.

L'armée allemande large-scale airborne operation only once, when Fallschirmjäger et gliderborne infantry assaulted the island of Crete en 1941. The island was taken, but at the cost of grosses pertes, et the practise was not continued. After Crete, the Fallschirmjägers fought primarily as infanterie d'élite, avec the occasionally bataillon-sized drop to secure limited objectives.

Possibilités de Conversions

  • Fallschirmjäger avec cloth helmet cover, 1941-1945,
    using heads from the Revell Fallschirmjäger set.
  • Fallschirmjäger in Luftwaffe side cap, 1940-1942,
    using heads from the Airfix Luftwaffe Personnel set.
  • Fallschirmjäger in Luftwaffe tropical uniform, Afrique du Nord 1942,
    mounting Fallschirmjäger heads on ESCI ou Airfix Afrikakorps infantry. This conversion works very well for officiers, machine gunners et MP40 gunners who did not wear the rifle bandolier parachutiste. In fact, Afrikakorps figurines in Feldmütze caps may be used without conversion pour représenter parachutistes en uniforme tropical.
  • Fallschirmjäger in Meier-Mütze, 04/1942-1943,
    using heads avec Naval officers' soft caps taken from a 1/72 torpedo boat kit.
  • Fallschirmjäger in Einheitsfeldmütze field cap, 1943,
    using heads from the Airfix Afrikakorps set.
  • Fallschirmjäger in army steel helmet, due to equipment shortages beginning 1944,
    using heads des figurines de l'infanterie allemande régulière.
  • 4e Bataillon Parachutiste Roumain in grey-blue one-piece jump suits, 1944.
    The leg of the jump suit allemande can be trimmed carefully, to blend it into the trousers. Les parachutistes roumains abandoned le casque parachutiste allemand in favor du bonnet de police de la force aérienne au course des combats en 1944, because they were too easily mistaken for Allemands. Parachutistes roumains were equipped avec ZB24 rifles, MP40 machine pistols, mitrailleuses légères ZB30, mitrailleuses lourdes ZB35, mortiers de 60 mm et 81 mm Brandt, flamethrowers, et canons d'infanterie de 47 mm Böhler. There was un peloton de reconnaissance motocycliste parachutiste in the HQ company.

Clever joueurs de guerre will raise their Fallschirmjäger units pour la Campagne de Tunisie en 1943, in which case they will get away avec mixing Afrikakorps machine gunners, MP40 gunners, et officiers into the batch. All it takes is a head swap, placing Fallschirmjäger helmets on the Afrikakorps soldiers. Some figurines need no conversion at all, provided that they are already wearing the practical casquette de campagne «Feldmütze» which quickly replaced le bonnet de police «Schiffchen» de la Luftwaffe en unités de Fallschirmjäger parachutistes. Tropical uniform was to be worn between 1st of Mai et 30th of Septembre each year, et these figurine conversions would serve well dans un scénario d'Italie en 1943. That year also saw the introduction of the more attractive tan aqueous camouflage smock, which was often seen alongside the earlier grey-green et splinter camouflage smocks.
