Description

The section de fusiliers-voltigeurs (fusiliers-voltigeurs platoon) is another example of the French infantry’s perfect organization for trench warfare.

The platoon has a small group of rifle grenadiers with the Tromblon VB grenade launcher in the platoon headquarters to knock out machine-gun nests, and three groups (sections) of fusiliers-voltigeurs.

The demi groupe de fusiliers (shooters half-section) is the base of fire, delivering a fusillade of shots from their MAS model 1936 bolt-action rifles and the squad’s Châtellarault FM model 1924/29 light machine-gun. Under the cover of this fire, the demi groupe de voltigeurs (maneuver half-section) vaults out of the trenches and sprints across No Man’s Land to assault the enemy trenches.

Most reserve divisions retained the old Berthier modèle 1916 rifle and some even had the old Chauchat FM modèle 1915 light machine-gun, but all had the excellent Tromblon VB grenade launcher.
