The 101st Airborne Division "Screaming Eagles" is a faction in many Medal of Honor games. The 101st Airborne Division is an elite modular specialized light infantry division of the United States Army trained for air assault operations.[1] and has been referred to as "the tip of the spear" The 101st Airborne Division has a nearly century-long history. The 101st in World War 2 first saw action during Operation: Overlord. The 101st gained a legendary reputation during Battle of the Bulge where the surronded 101st Airborne companies were able to defend Bastogne from German forces. After World War 2 the 101st Airborne Division was deployed in the Vietnam War and later served in Iraq and Afganistan. The division is one of the most highly decorated units in the United States Army and has been featured prominently in military fiction.

Several soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division were scattered in the French hedgerows near Carentan. Two officers from the 2nd Ranger Battalion, Lieutenant Mike Powell and Captain Ramsey, were sent to find these men, while at the same time destroying Flak guns and Nebelwerfers in the area.

Trivia Edit

  • The 101st did fought in Rocherath, but it's not known when they fought there.
  • In Breakthrough some 82nd Airborne soldiers uses the 101st Airborne paratrooper skin from the base game. This might be a developer oversight.
  • In Spearhead the the snow 101st uniform has 2nd Ranger patches on their arms instead of the "Screaming Eagle" patch.
  • In Spearhead during the second Bastogne mission every 101st Soldier, except the Captain, uses German weaponary instead of using American weapons.
