      Most likely, the driver grossly violated the rules, wanted to slip through ... if he were driving on a semaphore enable signal, then even if they had time to leave the car stalled ....

        More recently, in September, during a NATO exercise in Sweden, a passenger train collided with an armored personnel carrier while moving. But then no one died.

          In general, I feel sorry for people - especially young and healthy people who, by conscription not in war, but in peacetime, accidentally died or were seriously injured, even if they were Finnish military personnel.
          I sympathize with their parents and relatives!
          And I wish the wounded in the train crash a speedy recovery! And a peaceful sky over our countries!

            It is sad when young people die for no reason, due to some accident. Moreover, Finland is not a NATO member and the death of its soldiers is not at all interesting.

          hence the conclusion - the Swedes are much faster than the Finns hi

    Judging by the article, the driver is to blame. Therefore, the guys died due to non-compliance with elementary rules. It’s worse when they die because of their stupidity without observing elementary security measures, which have been warned more than once (which happened during the exercises with us). Of course, condolences to relatives, but what else can be expressed.

      I don’t know how the Finns do, but in RA (SA) the driver of the car is supervised by the driver’s actions. They, I suppose, have the same thing, if only the fighters didn’t get better at self-propelled.

    It looks like a light truck, something that resembles our GAZ-66

    Fighters are sorry. Drove - ..duck, he could drive the fighters out of the car. Slap it.
    Condolences to the dead. Most likely the soldiers did not even see the impending danger because of the awning.
