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.

While they look similar this one is made by the Finish and is of their own design whereas the Thompson "type writer"/ "tommy gun" was created in the United States.

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.

Non lo sapevo, molto interessante come sempre. Mi piace molto il design dei berretti e dei caschi.
