A couple more photos

The german caption for the above photo reads “Here’s another variant of the propeller sled used by the Finnish troops, whose military vehicles had the swastika as a national emblem. The bow shape suggests that this is a conversion of a Russian sled type NKL 16/41, used for the first time by the Russian side in the winter 1941/42 as transport snowmobiles.”

The caption reads “Lento kelkkoja otetaan käyttöön Äänisellä. Kelkkoja puhdistetaan lumesta. Arsen-Navolok 1941.12.16″ – Aerosleds will be introduced on Lake Onega. Cleaning the snow sleds. Arsen-Navolok 1941.12.16
