Good read all the same.
that they could sustain losses on a par with the Falklands where 3 Para lost 23 dead and 50 wounded taking Mount Longden
They'd certainly better be on the look out for your Mortar Pl.stormtrooper said:I'm ex Reg ( 3 PARA ) , go for it fellaz! Get over there n get mega body count! Para reg fcuk all in ones or twos.......heheheheh.....dick!
To echo Goose Rider's sentiments. What about Armoured Infantry? I think you'll find that a decent Warrior Bn are a lot better at Armoured warfare than the Paras are. Horses for courses.Goose_Rider said:
