Question about the fortress troops of Finland

Post by CyirlSh » 03 Jun 2021 19:59

I am looking for information about the Finnish fortress troops in 1944.
I know that there were four Svir fortress artillery divisions (Syvärin linnoitustykistäpatteristo — Syv.Lin.Psto) and two Maasel fortress artillery divisions (Maaselän linnoitustykistöpatteristo — Maa.Lin.Psto).
There was also 6th fortress artillery divisions (Linnoituspatteristo 6) in the 2nd and 3rd companies.
What other artillery units were there?

The most interesting are fortress battalions and separate fortress companies.
I know there were three fortress battalions (Linnoituspataljoona Lin.P): 3rd, 4th and 5th.
I know there were fortress companies (Erillinen linnoituskomppania) 14th and 20th.
What else was there?

It is interesting to know the composition of the fortress battalions and fortress companies.
Any information about the fortress troops of Finland is interesting.

I would also like to know how many Linnoitusrakennuspataljoona and Erillinen linnoitusrakennuskomppania were in 1944 and where they were.

I would also like to know about the coastal companies: Torjuntakomppania — TK and Rannikkoiskukomppania — RK. How many there were in 1944 and where they were.

Best regards.
