About the WWII Russian Sapper:
Created after the German invasion of Russia in 1941, the Sapper Armies consisted of enlisted soldiers, as well as civilians, and were tasked with constructing defensive structures to help slow the German advance. Deemed incredibly effective, the sapper armies were instrumental in the Red Army’s victories at key turning points in World War II, including Leningrad, Moscow, and Stalingrad.
The Russian Sapper minfig features an SSh-40 helmet with scuff marks and texture rivets, and a texture printed SN-42 body armour over a fall amoeba camo artwork based off of the uniforms worn by the Soviet Union’s sapper army troops. All artwork was designed by Lando and printed at the Brickmania® HQ by our UV print team.
