Today Finland is celebrating its 95th year as an independent country, lets celebrate this in the forums and WOT by playing some of the tanks Finland used during WW2.

Here is a good site with information with what equipment Finland started the war:
http://www.wwiivehic...and/default.asp

Here is another site with more detailed information about the tanks used during the war years:
http://www.porsimo.n...nfo/armored.htm

What is interesting to see is the low amount of every tank and most of them are light ones, imaging this when the russians where attacking with T34, KV1, SU152 and so on, nice to sit in a T26...

Every Finnish tanker in WOT should at least have some of these in the garage to honor the brave tankers of the nation.

Have a look at some of the surviving ones at Parola tank museum:

Some Swede put it well before a certain ice hockey game, "We love to hate each other." ;)

Have a nice day, Finns... there are also a lot of good metal bands coming from your country (Nightwish, Amorphis, Stratovarius, Children of Bodom etc.)... :)
