    Product Description
    (Type: model figures) This is a plastic snap fit model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required. This "snap fit" model can be assembled without glue.

    This kit includes four plastic model German soldiers scaling a rock face.

    The rough terrain and extreme conditions of mountain regions requires specially-trained soldiers. In the German military of World War II, these units were called Gebirgsjager (or "mountain hunter"). These specialist troops were not as heavily armed as regular infantry, but their cold-weather training and expertise in difficult terrain made them invaluable in many battles fought during the war.

    All told, there were 19 mountain divisions established by Germany during World War II. They served in operations in Poland, the Soviet Union, the Balkans, North Africa, and France. They were typically equipped with the short-barrelled Mauser K98 Carbine rifle, called the Gewehr 33/40, MP40 submachine guns, and MG34 or MG42 light machine guns. Along with the Fallschirmjager, these mountain troops were considered to be the most elite infantry units in the Wehrmacht.
