Italian Breda LMG Group in sun helmets


SKU: IT-109 Categories: ,


Two Breda LMG crews, as shown. These figures are similar to IT-102 but are wearing sun helmets. Use them with the Colonial Italians in sun helmets for either Ethiopia in 1935-6 or in the Western Desert 1940-1.

Each Italian infantry section contained two Breda 6.5mm LMGs in a machine-gun gruppo (group).

The gunner carries a pistol not seen on the figure, as it was worn in a holster at the front. The other two crewmen carried rifles, supplied as separate parts (not shown). The rifles could be glued on the figures if desired but most photos show the rifles lying on the ground nearby.

Also included in the set are an ammunition box, a spare magazine and the spare parts box, including a spare barrel (shown in the bottom photo).

A Breda crew waits in ambush. The three-man crew can be made into a nice diorama about 2″ x 2 1/2″, as seen in the photo above.

NOTE: All figures are sold plain (not primed or painted) and without additional basing.
