Fw-200 Condors Attacks Finnish Shipping,1944?

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 14 Jun 2019 05:38

During the Lapland War,a small group of Finnish warships arrived just in time for their crew to witness several Fw-200 Condors launched their Hs-293 anti-ship missiles against Finnish shipping near a harbor with no results. The source is from Wikipedia "Lapland War". The Finns I believe had seen for the first time the use in combat of German air to surface missiles. What unit had used the Fw-200 Condors in their attack on Finnish ships in 1944? This is the first time I ever heard about this missile attack against Finnish shipping. Stuka attacks on Finnish ships were a little more effective than the Condors.
