Soviet Naval Infantry

The 142nd Naval Infantry Battalion - ready to storm ashore to attack the fascists in their lairs.  Famous for the defense of Leningrad, Novorossiysk, and Sevastopol; but naval infantry fought throughout Europe and in the Far East as well.

Here is the battalion:

There are three infantry companies, with their commander:

 The heavy weapons company.
And a forward observer ready to call in the fire of the fleet.

This force will be extended to a brigade.  I have followed a standard infantry battalion structure with this unit, but I have since discovered that I could have been far more generous with the assignment of machine guns and mortars.
