If you think of the guys who freed mussolini from the Gran Sasso...they where SS-Parachuters...so a historical unit...
And so I think they should be part of the game
The SS Friedenthalgroup that freed Mussolini, was not a real parachute unit or even a real combat unit, let alone a commando unit, they were trained originally as a terror and sabotage group, never massing more than 350 men trained as a SS special "Abwehr" group. That makes their raid maybe even more spectacular, but for this game`s scale rather irrelevant.
Even after the famous Mussolini liberation, their focus was on sabotage, assassination and terror against mainly civil targets than being a combat focused command.
Also on the game`s scale perspective we deal in Panzer Corps with brigade/division/corps sized units, I really see no historic nor strategic use for SE parachute units at this point.
But who knows we may add one just for fun, as that is what counts.... ;-)
