Bersaglieri

The Bersaglieri (Italian pronunciation: [bersaʎˈʎɛːri]) (Marksmen in English) are a corps of the Italian Army originally created by General Alessandro La Marmora on 18 June 1836 to serve in the Army of the Kingdom of Sardinia, later to become the Royal Italian Army. They have always been a high-mobility light infantry unit, and can still be recognized by the distinctive wide brimmed hat that they wear (only in dress uniform in modern times), decorated with black capercaillie feathers. The feathers are usually applied to their combat helmets. Another distinctive trait of the Bersaglieri is the fast jog pace they keep on parades, instead of marching.

  1. Francesco Bambina (verified owner)

    You get ten of the strips of five standing guys and five of the double prone guys strips. Easily used as any Italian infantry, yet also able to be bersaglieri by painting the ortrich feather and making it stand out.

    Superior service value and details
