Finnish Air Force Day
Download Wallpaper:

The Finnish Air Force was founded on the 6th of March, 1918, soon after the country declared its independence from the Russian Empire. Its first planes were simply left behind by Russian forces. But the Finns didn’t have their own pilots, so in the beginning they had to rely on unofficial help from Swedes, Danes, and Russians.

The Finnish Air Force was rather successful in fighting off Soviet aircraft during the Winter War, and in WWII refrained from bombing civilian targets. After the peace treaty with the USSR was signed, Finnish pilots kept fighting in the skies against their past allies from the Luftwaffe.

Today the Finnish Air Force consists of several dozen of American F/A-18 Hornets.

From March 6th (11:00 GMT) until March 9th (7:00 GMT), play 3 battles using Swedish aircraft (rank III or higher, with an activity of not less than 70%) to receive the “Emblem of the Karelia Air Command” decal.

Complete the task in random battles, except for Enduring Confrontation missions and [Assault] mode. Track your progress in the hangar by clicking Nickname → Achievements → Holidays → Finnish Air Force Day.
