I have been lurking for quite some time. I have enjoyed the "national" threads, about the armed forces of various countries. I hope the one starting this thread doesn't mind that we have turned his personal photos thread to one mega-thread about the Finnish defence forces?
I atleast hope not, because here are some news
Hopefully (and I think it will) the order will go the Finnish SISU Defence company. As shown earlier in this thread already, the 10 x 10 version has already been ordered in small numbers. Maybe we will see 4 x 4 versions as well in service in the near future. I don't think that SISU Defence would have developed the vehicles, had they not expected some orders from the FDF.The Defence Forces plan to acquire about 180 road lorries of different types between 2008 and 2010. About 350 actual military lorries will be needed in 2009 and 2010, and the military wants the option for another lot the same size by the end of 2011.
