German Paratrooper (Internationals) Description:

The 'Internationals range' was a basic stripped down version of previous uniforms, and some new content. Launched on blister packs in 1979 they included a (new) Russian Infantryman, UN Peace Force, Afrika Korps, and USMC, and familiar Red Devil Parachutist basics. The Action Man German Paratrooper could be accessoried by purchasing separate accessory card sets.

ACTION MAN GERMAN PARATROOPER: Tunic, trousers, boots, helmet.

 

Notes:

The Action Man German Paratrooper outfit from the Internationals range was a basic uniform that needed further accessorisation to give it play value. The helmet and tunic was unique to this outfit and has a lurid camouflage that is everything but, and quite unlike the real uniform. The 'current' Action Man in 1979 was the dynamic body Eagle Eyes figure (introduced year before).
