The Horsa is perhaps the best known glider of WWII. Able to transport more than 25 troops or a large amount of essential equipment and supplies in its large fuselage. It took part in the main airborne landings of WWII but its name is particularly connected to the two most famous missions: the landing in Normandy on the 6th June 1944 and the attack on Arnhem Bridge in Operation Market Garden.
Measuring in at 37cm (14&1/2") long and with a wing span of nearly 50cm (19&1/2"). 1/56 scale...ish, it breaks down into several components so can be modeled crashed, as an objective or just as scenery for your battlefield.
The Horsa is a beautiful piece that no Air Landing Platoon should be without! Sarissa have cleverly made use of card and MDF and modified the dimensions to fit perfectly on your battlefields - rather than an exactly scaled model this is a perfect gaming piece!
