Product Description

This fantastic set comprising of 3 x DFS 230 assault gliders, 30 Fallschirmjäger, and their commander (and limited edition figure) Otto Skorzeny is ready to surprise the enemy defenses!

Gran Saso Raid

The action Otto Skorzeny is arguably most famous for was the airborne liberation of the fascist Italian dictator Mussolini from his mountain prison. Skorzeny along with six German Air Force and Army special agents were selected to lead an airborne operation to rescue the imprisoned Benito Mussolini. Numerous attempts had been made to retrieve Mussolini, but were unsuccessful, as the Italians had been moving the ousted leader around to avoid detection. Skorzeny took many pictures of each of the locations that they thought he was being held in, giving him a better view to plan, eventually tracking Mussolini to the Gran Sasso mountain, which was only accessible via a single cable car! Skorzeny’s team launched a high-risk glider mission and succeeded in rescuing Mussolini without firing a shot.
