Older comments[edit]

Tables of organization and equipment were incorrect. Most notably there's just one armoured brigade and there are also two mechanized groups. There are only 4 Jaeger Brigades and 7 Infantry Brigades. Source: http://www.mil.fi/selonteontoimeenpano/selonteko_selvaksi.pdf

"# M72 LAW (66 KES 88) (170 000 pcs)" I always thought that the number was 70 000, not 170 000. Would anyone have a source for this? --85.49.224.196 22:41, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

The Nasu isn't an armored vehicle, is it? http://www.mil.fi/maavoimat/kalustoesittely/00098_en.dsp lists it as a "tracked transport vehicle" and mentions no armor but a "reinforced plastic exterior" instead.

I removed the aviation template (which has been there for 2 years it seems). I really fail to see what air speed records etc. has to do with Finnish military. 80.248.106.227 23:07, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

(And I managed to screw up the article by using older revision. Fortunately bot or something fixed it) 80.248.106.227 23:13, 20 January 2007 (UTC))

WPMILHIST Assessment[edit]

Needs references/sources. Also has far too much emphasis on technical data, lists of units, this sort of thing, and nearly no prose paragraphs on the history or organizational structure. LordAmeth 13:39, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Finnish land force[edit]

In Finland like in the other continental countries the word army does not only refer to the land force, but also to the navy and air force. Therefore a more appropriate name for the article would be Finnish land force. 81.175.158.114 13:15, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Difference between Jaeger and Infantry[edit]

The main difference between jaeger and infantry units is their different wartime purpose and not the age of their materiel. Jaeger units' main task is attacking, while infantry units purpose is defending. This results in jaeger units being more mobile, while infantry units have more heavy and anti tank equipment (such as the recoilless rifle). So while generally speaking true, the sentence speaking about difference between the two unit types misses point, so I'll make correction. Maukku 08:02, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Finnish Soldiers Skiing.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Finnish Soldiers Skiing.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
