The Royal Italian Army is a faction found in Breakthrough expansion pack for the Allied Assault series, and in Medal of Honor: Vanguard.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: BreakthroughEdit

They were first fought in Bizerte Canal, and serves as the main antagonists in the second mission until the date surpasses 1944 (mission 3), when they surrendered to the Allies. They were known to be more challenging then the Germans at times.

Medal of Honor: VanguardEdit

They were not the main enemy in the campaign, because they only appear in the first mission, Off Target. They share the same equipment as the Waffen SS, but were very slow and is not as dangerous as the Germans; however, they will always come in large groups.

Medal of Honor: AirborneEdit

Italian Blackshirts make an appearance as enemies in the first mission Infinite Mischief.


The Italians are well armed, but are much more poorly trained and have poorer reactions in comparison to the Waffen-SS and Heer units encountered later in the games.




  • They were replaced by the Italian Blackshirts in Medal of Honor: Airborne.
  • In Vanguard, they used German weapons instead of their own. However, this is historically accurate because the Germans and the Italians were allies, often sharing weapons and resources.
  • Their in-game uniforms are also wildly inaccurate.
  • In the Caltagirone airfield mission during the Jeep segment italian soldeirs use lend lease german BMW R75s
