Nice stuff, feels like most of my work on SA-kuva is redundant though...
But I have a few additions, I can't identify all the individual tanks though, I don't know if this is a criteria for the listing?

Landsverk L-62: 155061
T34/85: 155725
T26/Vickers: 155088,155117, 155118
T-20: 154906, 154632
StuG: 155055, 155642,155974,155423 (Also some close-up and interior shots of "Bubi" from 155731-155740)

No, I don't think that is necessary. The most important thing is to dig up the tank photos. They can be identified later.

Here some more tanks:

T-34: 145396, 145403, 145405, 145407
KV-1: 145399, 145400, 145406
T-26 & Vickers: 55448. 55457 (R-76(?) & 77), 55462, 103875, 110325

Thank you, appreciated :milsmile:

Any sign of a BT-43 prototype among the pictures? That would be quite a find!

I believe that to be a modern (originally in color!) reconstruction from Muikku's book "Suomalaiset panssarivaunut 1918-1997".

Exactly, thanks for pointing that out. :)

Long series of photographs taken in town of Varkaus (location of Panssarikeskuskorjaamo / Armour Centre Repair Shop - the main Finnish repair facility for armoured vehicles) 1st of April 1940: 7824 - 7862

Some of these have been individually listed already earlier, but IMO they are interesting also as a whole.
