Elite Italian Assault Engineers.
The assault engineers were trained to destroy enemy defensive positions. This set is the Gruppo distruttori or “destruction group” of an Assault Engineer section.
This is an updated set, including two each of the three figures below.
The group consists of 11 figures, 1 officer with a flare pistol and 2 each of the other five figures.
The three running figures below come with separate right arms holding wire cutters, Bangalore torpedoes or satchel charges. There are two of each type of arm supplied along with six running figures.
Assault engineers advance along a wall.
NOTE: All figures are sold plain (not primed or painted) and without the extra bases shown.
