The Airborne Squad is a 6-man air-dropped elite infantry squad, fielded by the American Airborne Company in Company of Heroes. Initially armed for infantry combat, Airborne Squads have several useful combat abilities which enable them to cause a lot of destruction behind enemy lines. They can even be outfitted with powerful anti-tank launchers to harass and destroy enemy vehicles.
The Airborne Squad will parachute down into the targeted location. Once on the ground, the squad's innate defensive bonuses kick in, making them very hard to kill. Airborne Squads can reinforce anywhere on the map, making it possible for them to hold distant positions against enemy retaliation until help can arrive. A skilled player can have several of these units operating alone behind enemy lines for a considerably long period of time.
