1918 saw great changes in the warfare of the Western Front. Russia pulled out of the war, freeing thousands more German troops to push the Allies back huge distances. The Allied counteroffensives, with the new tanks, evolving tactics, and the arrival of the Americans, forced the Germans back towards their own borders and defeat.

Companie de Fusiliers (GFR701)
Artillery, trench mortars and guns, and even tanks have been incorporated into the unit in order to go on the offensive and push the Boches out of our homeland. Knowing that the war is nearly over some of our older poilus may be cautious and a bit weary of the fight; however the spirit of our colonial troops is excellent and they are ready to resume the offensive.

Step 1. Using base plugs to fill the spare holes. One team will need two holes filled, leaving holes for the gunner and kneeling NCO; the other will need three holes filled, just leaving one hole for the gunner.

Step 2. Position the gun trail over the gunner figure and glue in place. You might find it easier to paint the guns separately before assembly.
