Historical Note:

Mountain Troops (Gebirgsjager) and Ski Troops (Ski-Jager) were formed in 1915 and proved themselves as competent "Special Forces". After WWI these forces were carefully retained and later strengthened by Hitler's introduction of highly trained specialist Austrian Troops being natural skiers. June 1941 saw Germany invading Russia, and this led to continuous involvement of the Special Forces Mountain and Ski Troops in action through Finland and northern Russia into 1944. The major Russian counter offensives of 1944 drove the Germans south towards Austria and into their hands, while those units operating in northern Italy fell to the advancing US forces. This saw the end of action for these "Special Forces" and the troops who had fought with great courage in difficult terrain and extreme conditions. The Special Forces carry out assignments involving counter-terrorism, reconnaissance and unconventional warfare. With these types of missions, it is imperative the groups are highly trained and armed. That is why the selection process is rigorous, and the training can last for over two years for many of the Special Forces members. There are some missions that require even further training. Here Corgi is proud to honor the Special Forces with both 54-mm individual figures and 30-mm six-piece sets.
