The Finnish firearms manufacturer Valmet built assault rifles, in co-operation with SAKO , based in part on the Kalashnikov action in the early 1960s, and continued to manufacture them up until 1994. Their original offering was the milled receiver Model 62 which was offered in and NATO for export. The model M62 (known as Rk 62 in Finland) was adopted by the Finnish Defence Forces, and still serves as the standard infantry weapon of the Finnish Army. The M62 has an unusual T-shaped tubular buttstock, compared to other Kalashinkov pattern rifles. The gas block and front sight design is very similar to the Israeli Galil rifle, as the Galil was designed based on the Valmet. The M71S was an stamped receiver offering that more closely resembled the original AK-47 design and was developed for customers who wanted a rifle that looked like an AK-47 (since at the time many customers couldn't get a military or civilian version at all). The M71S was built between 1971-1977 and was offered in and NATO. The M76 was the Model 62 with a stamped receiver, more conventional buttstock and foregrip assembly. Later, Valmet produced the M76F which was an M76 that had a side folding version of the original M62 buttstock. Valmet later merged into SAKO (in the late 1980s), and the some of their designs are currently being manufactured.

Adolf Hitler bought into his own hubris since he was a reckless gangster gambler, ’tis true… His initial ideas seemed to be the German 2nd Reich circa 1917-1918 when the Bolsheviks signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk leaving Germany in possession of Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic States, Poland… Resurrect that stillborn empire–the “Lebensraum” in the east. When France and the UK were defeated in six weeks in “Fall Gelb” and “Fall Rot” instead of being mired in four years of attritional warfare, he concluded that with France out of the war already, that the Russians were a giant with feet of clay… Doubtless the poor performance by Stalin’s “mini-me” Kliment Voroshilov figured into the calculations that the Red Army could be destroyed in massive encirclement battles, which essentially happened. It’s just that the Soviet State did not collapse, and readied a second and third iteration of the Red Army by 1944…

The army reform measures were launched with deep cuts in personnel strengths, the abolition of conscription, and disbanding of the militia . The size of the army declined from a peak strength of 97,000 troops to an estimated 15,200 in 1993, accomplished by voluntary discharges and forced retirements. Under the Sandinistas, the army general staff embodied numerous branches and directorates artillery, combat readiness, communications, Frontier Guards, military construction, intelligence, counterintelligence, training, operations, organization and mobilization, personnel, and logistics. Most of these bodies appear to have been retained, although they have been trimmed and reorganized. The Nicaraguan Air Force and Navy were also subordinate to the army general staff.
