Paratroopers late war fought in Italy, the Battle of the Bulge, and the Eastern Front.

They often had large numbers of small AT weapons because they had fewer heavy vehicles assigned organically to them.

While they were paratroopers, they often did not get parachute training.

These troops are wearing paratrooper uniforms.

Sometimes, late war they used standard helmets, and other bits of standard infantry gear.

So you can mix these guys with regular German Army infantry and consider them all paratroopers.

That's a good way to get other poses, like AT gun crews, that don't come in this set.

You can also do headswaps with M43 caps and standard helmets for more variety.
