Finnish war movie about the Russo Finnish scrape in 39/40. Plenty of the early type Russian T-26 (I think that's correct) Lot's of action. Good movie and historically accurate.

This film appears under other titles on Amazon- 'Talvisota', for example- and, if you're not careful, it's possible to buy it again unwittingly. I did a little review of this film here a few months back, in Oct., 2016. It had the title: 'Talvisota- the Winter War', then, and yes it's well worth watching. :thumbup: The appearance of the T26 is especially interesting for those of us who are keen to follow the evolution of the British tank. Sadly, model tank manufacturers don't seem to share our enthusiasm :thumbdown: ...except, that is, for notable release of the Challenger 2 in 1/16. :thumbup: The T26 is a reject Brit design for a light tank (rejected by the Ministry of Defence), but happily taken up by the soviets.
