Historical Background:

The problem of the Italian army was not their soldiers, but incompetent military leadership was aggravated by the Italian military's equipment, which predominantly dated back to the First World War and was not up to the standard of either the Allied or the German armies. Erwin Rommel himself mentioned that Italian soldiers were exceptional unlike their senior officers. In North Africa, the Italian 132 Armored Division Ariete and the 185 Airborne Division Folgore fought to total annihilation at the Second Battle of El Alamein. Although the battle was lost, the determined resistance of the Italian soldiers at the Battle of Keren in East Africa is still commemorated today by the Italian military.

Italy's Hero is, with Japan's honor bound hero, the cheapest Hero unit available in the game. For 7 points, you get a regular LMG soldier with 5/5 defense and the ability to ignore disrupted counter. You can also deploy it anywhere you need support for your infantry. In such it is not a bad deal. It is just sad that unlike the other hero units, it does not have an ability that can make it a game changer.
