New release: Btg. San Marco Assault Squad

The Regia Marina (Italian Royal Navy) is home to the first special forces in History and to some of the most seasoned veterans fighting for the Axis today. The Battaglione San Marco (San Marco Battalion) is one of these units and as such as been in the War since 1939. They can mostly be found around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, where they act as a Marines unit. Some elements have even recently been deployed in the Caspian Sea near Zverograd, in an effort to take the city for good. This Assault Squad is equipped to deal with any ground threat it might encounter such as enemy infantry or vehicles thanks to its Flamethrower.
