ww2  Winter and Continuation war  finnish weapons by AndreaSilva60 ww2  Winter and Continuation war  finnish weapons by AndreaSilva60
From 30 november 1939 to 13 march 1940 and from 25 June 1941 to 19 september 1944 Finland fough two wars against the Soviet Union, in the main context of the second world war, the first one was called the "Winter War", and occurred when the Soviet Union invaded the Finland,
while the second was called the "Continuation war", and was  started by Finland.  The little Finland lose both the war against the Soviet Union, outnumbered by the enemy,  losing Portions of the national territory but saving its indipendece.

The most part of the finnish weapons were designed by Aimo Lahti, his best success was the Suomi M-31, a very realiable and cheap machine gun.

I wonder what would have happened if Germany had supplied Finland with weapons at that time and if Simo Hayha would have used the Kar98K & or the Gewehr 43, I wonder what would have been his kill quota,
Hm,..I wonder if we could clone him would that be the end of every single filthy stinking filthy commie bastard on the planet, imagine a full army of Clone Troopers based off his DNA template,

Simo Hayha was an incredible guy, I read he didn't use a scope, but nevetheless he killed more than 500 enemies.

Finns had a pretty impressive collection of small arms for such a small country. Most countries their size relied on foreign bought or licence manufactured arms. I gues Mr. Lahti was a godsend.

Mr Lahti was a very prolific designer indeed, a sort of a Finnish Mr. Browning.

In all honesty, I thought the winter war was more of a sucess for the finnish, as they caused 60% of the russians fighting force to die in the conflict.

They covered themself of glory, but they were outnumbered, but nevertheless at the end of the folks they saved their indipendence,  and looking to the Baltic States,  this was a great goal.

They were both hero and wise, they knew that they had to firm an armistice in 1944.

It had high standard and very good steel, it was one of the better, even then a little expansive, weapon of WW2

Great info!!
Did he design the LS-26 shown?

Also, did you know there was a Hungarian volunteer battalion, which also had British soldiers? "Osasto Sisu"! I understand quite a few people volunteered to help little Finland.

Yes, it was the Lahti Soloranta.  I didn't know, in that time people was more determinated that now, just to think about the International Brigades in Spain.......     Left or right wing never mind, but there were people willing to fight for an ideal in a foreign country.

The texture of the M39 cap is so nicely done that I can almost feel that fluffy fur.
