Some day, I'd love to go skydiving. Now, I have an often-crippling fear of heights. And yet, jumping out of a plane is on my bucket list. I have a feeling that it'd help with my fear of heights. Granted, I wouldn't have anyone shooting at me. Airborne troops in WWII didn't have that luxury. Soon, you'll be able to add these brave soldiers to your Flames of War forces, as Battlefront is taking pre-orders for new sets now.
From the website:
The Fallschirmjäger are Germany’s elite volunteer paratroops and amongst the finest troops in the German armed forces.The elite Fallschirmjäger are more than capable of stopping the best the Allied armies can throw at them, whether fighting in the deserts of North Africa, in the Greek Islands, across the mountains of Sicily and Italy or the swamps and forests of the wintery Eastern Front.
America has entered the war and its newest branch of the army, the airborne divisions, are ready for action. Every paratrooper is a volunteer, equipped with the best equipment US industry can provide. Each paratrooper is a keenly honed weapon poised to strike at the heart of the enemy, trained to operate as a deadly team.
