The Comando Truppe Alpine (Alpine Troops Command) or COMALP commanded the Mountain Troops of the Italian Army, called Alpini and various support and training units. It was the successor to the 4º Corpo d'Armata Alpino (4th Alpine Army Corps) of the Cold War. The Alpinis are light Infantry units specializing in Mountain Combat. The subordinate units of the COMALP had distinguished themselves during combat in World War I and World War II. In 2013 the COMALP was disbanded and its place taken by the Tridentina Division.
