Copplestone Castings produce infanterie de marine impériale allemande en uniforme tropical, armed avec the Mauser M/71 Kaliber 11 mm bolt-action rifle which was upgraded to the M/71.84 repeating rifle avec 8-round tubular magazine en 1884. The Mauser M/71 et M/71.84 saw combat in the African colonial wars until la Grande Guerre, although les fantassins de marine allemande are likely to have replaced their M/71 rifles avec the Mauser Gewehr 98 which became available avant la Première Guerre mondiale. As was typical des fantassins de marine allemande et autres troupes d’élite, these soldiers march et fight avec their tunics et collars perfectly buttoned, regardless of weather conditions. Seebataillon officiers et sous-officiers saw to it that their hommes did not adopt the more practical campaign dress of the Schutztruppe, et the marines suffered beaucoup de pertes from heatstroke as a result.
