Sturmpionier is a German Infantry unit.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Sturmpioniere or "assault pioneers" are special detachments of Wehrmacht infantry, equipped and trained to destroy enemy fortifications and clear the way for line infantry. Commonly deployed in the first waves of an assault, a Sturmpionier's most notable weapon is the flamethrower, used to clear out enemy trenches and bunkers in close combat.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sturmpioniers are excellent at 100m range, given that it is a flamethrower squad, but are poor in most other areas. They are less versatile than the standard Pionier due to the lack of a machine gun, and thus have poor HE outside of the 100m range. They are ideal for close combat in forests and towns, and should ideally only be used in these areas.
