Fucilieri Platoon (Early & Mid War)
The Fucilieri, the riﬂemen, are the backbone of the Royal Army. They are not volunteers; they are recruited from those eligible for conscription. They are not in it to be heroes, but often the reluctant heroes are the greatest. They are there to get the war won and return home to their farms and villages. Armed with the old Carcano 91 riﬂe and a few new Breda 30 machine-guns, the Fucilieri must rely on their courage more than on technology.
Often their only support is the brave gunners of the artillery, together, on whatever front, they stand against the tide of the allied war machine.
The Fucilieri Platoon can also be used to represent Alpini and Mussolini’s Blackshirts.
