Showing of a render of our "Sotka" - a Finnish captured T-34 model 1941.

Posted by on

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a render of some Finnish armour, pressed into service after capture from the Soviets.

Finnish Captured T-34 model of 1941


The Finns first came across Soviet T-34s during August 1941 in the Karelian Isthmus. They would capture two intact before the end of the year, with a third following in the spring of 1942 and a fourth in autumn of 1943. Nine more were ordered from Germany in 1944, but only 3 were delivered before the end of the Continuation War. These tanks received minor modifications including new headlights and cut fenders.

The Finns gave the T-34 the nickname "Sotka", after a perceived resemblance to the pochard duck or perhaps after the name of a tugboat that a Finnish T-34 driver had served on. All of the T-34 taken into Finnish service survived the war and were taken out of service by the end of the 1950s. Our T-34 model of 1941 made by Pointblank86 and Stubbfan was modified into our Sotka by Seth Soldier and Matt Baker.
