    By the amount of money allocated, it can be assumed that the Finns are oriented, this is ... drum roll .... F-35 from lockheed. The only question is the production capabilities of the lokhid himself.

        The Finns still have the 21st MIGs in service. True modernized. They want to renew the park with another junk. No offense to the MIGs, all the same plane of the 50s. And they buy airplanes for a simple reason. The Finns are not going to fight, just in case of something, what would Russia not have enough for all the missiles. This is an extra 64 missiles, however not a trifle. laughing

        against Russia, aviation is senseless for Finland; sabotage and partisan actions are more effective.
        And for the general tone and "coalition anti-Papuan wars" inexpensive. but the most effective Russian gliders - the very thing - and at will, upgrade avionics and electronics.

        It’s very difficult to fight on the ground with the Finns, just look at the map of Finland.
        it has always been this way, since the days of the Vikings, the coast can still be captured, and they did - even the Swedes, even the Russians. But deep ... God forbid - the rocks, swamps, lakes, roads are narrow and you can’t advance without roads, these are not Don steppes.
        therefore always agreed - you will now be in our lineup, okay? here you have your rights - parliament, self-government, language and so on.

          Well, agreed. The identity of the "Finnish nation" occurred during their stay in the Russian Empire. With its parliament, language, self-government and army. (This is a question about Russia as a "prison of peoples") And what? In 1917, all Russians were slaughtered. Let them not think that we have forgotten. What, they live badly now? They will flirt with the West, let them know that the experience of the first Finnish war has been taken into account, and the next time they will not get off so easily. In the words of a famous character, "We can say they found them in the garbage dump, and then they draw figvam to us"

            It's funny About self-awareness.
            Therefore, there are probably two official languages ​​in Finland - Finnish and ... Swedish.
            You need to know the story. Facts, not their interpretation.
            They cut out all the Russians about it - bullshit, not even worth discussing.
            But one can recall how the USSR brazenly acted in 1939-40, having received the territories of South Karelia. Natural genocide.
            Finns were evicted from their homes, shot in batches, including the Communists.
            Then the Soviet government destroyed the already empty villages to the foundation (there was not enough time and time to destroy the foundations of the forces, since they were mostly granite, strong, still standing in the forests and the Finns go there to commemorate).
            And she built literally next to her Soviet villages, from the city of Yakutia and the sticks, and populated new people. It’s hard to imagine which phantasmagoria, but these are facts.

        Yeah, they washed themselves so much that in the 44th, the “heroic Finns”, managed and surrendered without waiting for the end of the war. This is despite the fact that the Red Army was connected by war with the greatest enemy in history, and the Karelian Front was secondary.

          And the Red Army for some reason did not move to the capital of Helsinki, so that
          accept surrender there and establish a “socialist power” in Finland,
          and modestly stopped after Vyborg.
          Apparently, the Winter War was firmly imprinted in memory of Stalin.

            It is easy to blame cowardice and pour mud on a person who died 65 years ago, and before that he won the greatest war and built a huge state .. Through whose efforts, by the way, some people got a state. And not deservedly. Moreover, all that Israel is capable of is to fight against such fighters as Arabs.

                There was no rowing. Firstly, it was not the main theater of operations, and the diversion of forces of means and forces to Finland, including occupation, did not meet current tasks. Secondly, by agreement, the Finns themselves drove the Germans from their territory, i.e. we didn’t have to fight with the Germans and the Finns. Thirdly, by agreement, Finland provided bases and airfields in the Baltic, which forced the Germans to hand over pans for scrap.
                There is one more point. Leningrad blockade. The Finns provided the northern face. But they didn’t carry out shelling and active databases, which allowed them to conduct active actions on the part of the spacecraft against the Germans without allocating reserves against the Finns. Well, and having returned the conquests of the Winter War, there were territorial acquisitions and indemnities, moreover, the Finns understood before the collapse of the USSR that they easily got off and were loyal to friendliness. They still have Soviet weapons.

        I don’t know about neglect. Read the history of war. In those conditions. it was almost impossible to fight in that territory, given the fortified area. The thickness of the snow cover was more than 1 m, the temperature -20, -30, etc.
