Hello Sturm78!

This must be the rear part of Vasama, it operated as a motor gunboat (with VMV:s). Torpedos were replaced with 40 mm Bofors and 20 mm Madsen. Two russian 12,7 mm guns remained in front.

Hi Sturm78

You can see two finnish, ex soviet G-5 boats here. They must be V 1 and V 2, because V 3 was captured 1944 and this image is 1943.

...or were they V 2 / Vihuri and V 3 / Viima ( later designation V 1) ?
