A Romanian soldier may lead a simple life but he knows how to fight and is very courageous in the face of the enemy. With a mixture of riflemen and machine-guns a Romanian Puscasi (Rifle) Company can hold their own against attacking enemy infantry, or advance and seize an objective. 5x Command teams
The riflemen of the Battalion Puscasi (rifle battalion) remain the backbone of the Romanian Army, despite new enemies and allies.
The Battalion Puscasi is an infantry-heavy force provided with Romanian and allied Soviet support. Their Puscasi Companies contain their own mortars and machine-guns with more available as separate platoons. Weapons and support includes reconnaissance, anti-tank, engineers, cavalry, artillery, heavy mortars, anti-aircraft and air support. They also gain support from the Soviets with tanks, assault guns, infantry, rockets and aircraft.
Battalion Puscasi in Eastern Front (Mid-war)
More than any other force fighting on the Eastern Front, the Batalion Puscasi represents the last vestiges of the old style of warfare—masses of hard-bitten infantrymen supported by artillery, with horse-mounted cavalrymen dashing around on the flanks. Achieving victory on a modern battlefield with such a force in a challenge for any commander, but once achieved is all the more sweet.
