German elite troops skilled in mountain warfare. The mountain soldier is one of the best trained soldiers in the German Army, and he is likely to be one of the best equipped.
Known as Gebirgsjaeger in German, they fought in most major campaigns including, in the Mediterranean Theater, Yugoslavia, Greece, Crete, Tunisia and Italy from 1941 to 1945.
Our jaegers are dressed in light kit for combat for summer operations, as in the invasion of Crete in 1941, where the 5th Mountain Division fought.
These figures can also be painted in khaki desert uniforms which they wore in Tunisia and Italy.
