Alpini Infantry

Author File Description
LightInfa
File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
This mod gives the Romans three more unique units, the Alpini line. These units go from the Industrial to the Information Age. It starts with Alpini Riflemen then Alpini and Assault Alpini.
They are slower, but have greater hitpoints and armor than normal infantry. The Alpini Riflemen and the Assault Alpini are reskins of the command and the assault infantry respectively. The modern age Alpini is just the special forces snow skin and model. The Assault Alpini has the M-16 with a grenade laucher as his weapon.
History

The Alpini were elite mountain troops for Italy created in the early 1870s. They were recruited from residents of the Alps and were originally used to defend the mountain passes, but they ended up fighting in Ethiopia and other foreign places.
In WWI Alpini were engaged in grueling warfare in the Alps. They fought for mountain peaks with Austrian alpine forces for almost the duration of the war in very harsh conditions.
In the 1930s the Alpini went to Ethiopia again during the Second Italo-Abyssinian War. During the Second World War the Alpini were one of the best troops in the Italian army and did not share the same poor quality. They were sent to the Russian front where they fought bravely and gave a good account of themselves.
After WWII the Alpini were kept as mountain troops, and after the Cold War most were disbanded. However there are still Alpini units in the Italian Army and they carry on the tradition.

Cool...

Anybody who has downloaded it- Should I change the Assault Alpini from shooting grenades and should i change the normal Alpini so they shoot automatic weapons instead of like rifles

Thanks,

Sorry for posting a little late. I haven't looked here for a long time since there have been no comments.

You can use the mod or the skins for any mod you do, I have no problem on that.

Making the grenade laucher was cool, but I thought there might be some problems with the grenades shooting to fast and the explosions not syncing up with the grenades.

KamikazeSeagull yay! thank you for letting us use your skins!!
(cause i'm using them...)
Turkish General can i use these skins in my Italian mod?please let me use them.

Bit late in responding, I haven't been here in ages, but Turkish General you may use these skins, and anyone else who needs to use these can as long as proper credit is given.

VelvetClaw Hi,

These look interesthing, yet I was wondering if it'd be possible to recode the Alpini so that they have a "pass through terrain" ability like the Iroquois pre-industrial scouts. It makes no sense that Roman mountain troops can't cross over mountainous terrain or cliffs.
