FinnWars is about Finland fighting against The Soviet Union in WWII. The USSR insisted having land areas from Finland to secure Leningrad’s safety in 1939. Finland didn’t agree on these demands and a war begun. The first war between these two happened in 1939-40. The war raged 105 days during wintertime. Finland succeeded in maintaining its independency though losing some areas. The war was named the Winter War.

In the summer 1941 Germany attacked The Soviet Union and asked some assistance from Finland. Finland and Germany were brothers-in-arms though not exactly allies. Germany gained access through Finland with this agreement and Finland had material and military support from Germany. For example Panzerschrecks, Panzerfausts and StugIIIs. Germany was eager to accomplish operation Barbarossa and the Finns wanted areas back that were lost to the Soviet Union in the Winter War. Hitler insisted loyalty from Finland so that it wouldn’t sign a separate peace treaty without Germany’s approval. Finland’s President Ryti gave Hitler his word about Finland not signing peace treaties with USSR when he is President. Ryti resigned in 1944 and Mannerheim took his place. Ryti’s promises didn’t have anything to do with Mannerheim and so a peace agreement was signed in 1944.

The USSR insisted Finland driving all Germans out of Finland after the peace agreement. Since the Germans didn’t leave fast enough, Finland had to force them out with armed force. The battles took place mostly in Lapland and so the war between Finland and Germany was called Lapland War. In 1945 Lapland War was fought and Finland was finally free from wars. Independence was kept though suffering some area losses.
In a nutshell: Finnwars is Winter War + Continuation War + Lapland war

A little tip: don't download, there's only one server up wich is extremly laggy most of the time when theres only about 20 persons playing. And to all swedes- Finland hate you of some reason so play at your own risk. They are rasistic bastards you know, ****** because we didn't helped them enough in ww2...

In terms of realistic combat, this is one of the finest mods to fit that category. The overall setting of the Finnish wars is duplicated, with heavy emphasis on limiting powerful weapons to maintain a realistic distribution of weapons, with the veritable Suomi SMG being one of the most limited, and the generic mass produced bolt action rifles being unlimited. An excellently crafted mod.
