Finnish Border Guard receives first H215 from Airbus Helicopters
Mar 7, 2016




Airbus Helicopters has delivered the first of two H215s to join the Finnish Border Guard fleet, announced today at the Heli Expo Trade Show, where an H215 can be visited on the static display.

The first H215 arrived in Finland on February 28 following a training session at the Airbus Helicopters headquarters in Marignane, France. The second is set to arrive upon completion of a second training session in April. More than 140 flight hours will be performed during the trainings.

The Finnish Border Guard already operates three AS332 aircraft and has in addition signed a Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) HCare contract to retrofit these AS332s to the new H215 multirole configuration. The H215s will be used to perform Border Security and Maritime Search and Rescue (SAR) duties from the Turku and Helsinki bases. The Air Patrol Squadron of the Finnish Boarder Guard carries out more than 4,000 flight hours annually, 1,400 of which in their Super Pumas.

“Finland is the 8th largest country in the European Union but the most sparsely populated, with large sea areas and forest terrains and, due the northern location, very challenging weather conditions for SAR operations,” said colonel Antti Pesari at the Finnish Boarder Guard. “The H215’s avionics and autopilot combined with its capability to provide excellent performance in day or night operations are the reason why we are excited to have it join our fleet.”

The H215 is a twin-engine, versatile, economic and robust helicopter that combines advanced avionics and a reliable platform for rugged multi-mission capabilities. It offers long range capabilities, power, speed, a large useful payload and very good lifting performance in hot and high environments. Both EASA and FAA certified, the aircraft is equipped with the latest, most modern technologies meeting the latest safety requirements of the market. This includes a glass cockpit and the renowned 4-axis autopilot used on the H225, which provides flight envelope protection, unrivalled precision, and stability in even the harshest operating conditions.

“The H215 a highly performing helicopter that also offers a very innovative and flexible cabin,” said Marie-Agnes Vève, Senior Vice President of the Super Puma programme at Airbus Helicopters. “This helicopter represents a new and modern business concept, offering a standardized equipment definition, therefore providing customers with a smart choice when it comes to a specific kind of mission need.”

The H215 is tailored for a full range of missions, including: utility airlift with internal and external loads, passenger transportation; law enforcement and search & rescue missions; firefighting and medical evacuation; and peace-keeping and humanitarian deployments.

Finnish Navy Releases Video on Naval Operations, Missions and Future Vessels





The Finnish Navy (Merivoimat) released a video explaining its operations, main missions as well as its plan for the acquisition of four multi-roles surface vessels.


he video explains that the Navy is a critical part of Finland's defense. The Navy's statutory task is to monitor and ensure the territorial integrity of Finland. The Navy may carry its tasks out in collaboration with the other defense branches (air force and army) and the tasks are enforced every day of the year.

In a crisis situation the Finnish Navy task is to fight against the enemy at sea and on the coast, to protect the vital sea link, as well as support air and ground forces to fight. The Navy covers all aspects of a coordinated maritime operations, such as the surface warfare, mine warfare, air defense, anti-submarine and preventing amphibious invasions.

However, in the near future, a significant number of fighting ships will be retired from the fleet because of their age. For this reason, the Navy needs four new warships.

Finland To Strengthen Training Mission in Iraq
Gerard O’Dwyer, Defense News 1 p.m. EDT April 21, 2016


HELSINKI — Finland is on course to increase the number of specialized troops involved in crisis management operations in Iraq.

The new deployment will double the number of Finnish specialist military personnel serving in Iraq's Kurdistan region to 100.

The government plan, which has secured the approval of Finland’s national parliament, the Eduskunta, includes the training and dispatch of an initial 50 specialist troops to northern Iraq by September 2016.

Resulting from the decision, the mission tasked to the designated Finnish armed forces unit will be to reinforce the training of local forces behind the front line. This will involve providing close-combat, reconnaissance and survival skills training to Kurdish peshmerga fighters battling the Islamic State group in northern Iraq.

The Finnish unit will also be tasked with providing "advisory support" to the Kurdish security forces at brigade and battalion levels.






Finland's armed forces have earlier provided specialist troops to train Kurdish peshmerga fighters in combat tactics at bases in northern Iraq, including at the main garrison in Erbil.

Much of the debate in the Eduskunta centered on the high-risk nature of the mission. The planned operational unit will be located close to battle theaters in northern Iraq, areas subject to regular roadside improvised explosive device attacks.

Defence Minister Jussi Niinistö has also raised the possibility of chemical weapons attacks against Finnish troops.

"The mission unit will be equipped with protective equipment, detectors and other lifesaving materials. It will also have armored vehicles," Niinistö said.

Those specialist units from Finland's armed forces that are deployed to Iraq are already well-trained in IED detection and counter-prevention measures, said Brig. Gen. Petri Hulkko.

Hulkko described the security situation in northern Iraq as "stable," noting that ISIS’ initial stranglehold on the region is significantly weaker than it once was.

"ISIS no longer has the ability to engage in large troop movements as it did a year ago," Hulkko said.

Finnish Government: Joining NATO Would Cause Major Crisis with Russia





new report issued by the Finnish government finds that joining NATO would not be in the country’s security interests following a public opinion poll showing only 22% of voters want Finland to accede to the Western military alliance.

On Friday, Finland released an official government report suggesting that, if the country were to join NATO, it would lead to a crisis with neighboring Russia.



According to the report prepared for Prime Minister Juha Sipila, NATO membership would incrementally strengthen Finland’s national security posture initially, but would likely trigger a harsh reaction from the Kremlin in light of the ongoing militarization along Russia’s border by the Western alliance. Militarily-neutral Finland shares an 833 mile-long (1340 km) border with Russia.
The report did not dash all prospects of the Nordic country joining the Western military alliance, suggesting that a joint Finnish-Swedish application for NATO membership may be a better strategic option than either country joining alone.



Popular opinion embraces Finland’s peaceful legacy of refusing to associate itself with military alliances. In a recent public opinion poll, over 55% of Finns opposed their country acceding to NATO, while 22% supported the idea.
In recent months, the Obama administration has expanded appropriations to the UN’s Nordic mission four-fold, with troops conducting aggressive military exercises dubbed 'Cold Response' on the border of Norway and Russia.
In response to Western saber-rattling, Russia has dispatched warplanes to fly simulated attack passes near US destroyers in the Baltic Sea. In addition to buzzing US destroyers in the Baltic Sea, on Friday a Russian Su-27 jet flew within 25 feet of a US Air Force RC-135 aircraft over the Baltic Sea.


In what some are billing a ‘new Cold War,’ the Kremlin has begun to express its disdain for the American-led policy of encirclement. On Friday, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov warned that if Finland’s neighbor Sweden were to accede to NATO, Moscow would take "necessary military-technical measures" in response.
During the Cold War, Finland maintained positive diplomatic ties with Moscow, despite engaging heavily in economic relations with the United States, suggesting that the country could once again manage to navigate a path of peace between the two superpowers.

La Finlande ne devrait pas adhérer à l’Otan sans la Suède


Posté dans Europe, Otan par Laurent Lagneau Le 01-05-2016




Depuis deux ans, la Suède et la Finlande ont dénoncé plusieurs violations de leur intégrité territoriale par des avions russes. Et ce qui a conduit, en partie, les pays scandinaves à dénoncer une dégradation « sensible » de la situation sécuritaire dans leur environnement proche, causée, selon eux, par l’intensification des activités militaires menées par la Russie.

Aussi, et après plusieurs années de coupes dans leurs budgets militaires respectifs, le débat d’une éventuelle adhésion à l’Otan a été relancé en Finlande et en Suède.

Cela étant, ces deux pays entretiennent déjà de fortes relations avec l’Otan, dans la mesure où ils ont rejoint le programme de partenariat pour la paix de cette organisation et qu’ils sont membres, depuis 1997, du Conseil de partenariat euro-atlantique.

Quoi qu’il en soit, l’éventualité de rejoindre l’Otan a fait l’objet d’un rapport qui vient d’être remis au gouvernement finlandais. Et l’une des conclusions est qu’Helsinki devra entreprendre cette démarche avec Stockholm pour éviter de se retrouver dans une position isolée.

« L’adhésion de la Finlande sans la Suède engendrerait une situation stratégiquement délicate de poste avancé sans continuité territoriale avec l’Otan », ont expliqué les auteurs du rapport.

En revanche, si la Suède prend la décision seule d’adhérer à l’Otan, alors la Finlande « serait plus exposée et vulnérable qu’aujourd’hui », ont-ils ajouté.

Enfin, le rapport estime que l’adhésion à l’Otan « renforcerait la dissuasion contre une éventuelle attaque contre » la Finlande mais, dans le même temps, elle « provoquerait probablement aussi une grave crise avec la Russie pour une période indéfinie. »

L’exemple en a encore été donné par Sergueï Lavrov, le ministre russe des Affaires étrangères. Dans un entretien publié le 29 avril par le quotidien suédois Dagens Nyheter, il a de nouveau mis en garde Stockholm contre une adhésion à l’Otan, en promettant des « mesures militaires et techniques ».

« Nous ne pensons pourtant pas que les Suédois nous attaqueront une fois que la Suède décidera d’adhérer à l’Otan », a dit M. Lavrov. « Mais comme l’infrastructure militaire suédoise, dans le cas d’une adhésion, sera contrôlée par le commandement suprême de l’Otan, nous serons contraints de prendre des mesures nécessaires militaro-techniques à nos frontières septentrionales, vu que l’Alliance atlantique progresse d’un autre côté, l’alliance qui considère la Russie comme une menace et souhaite la contrer de toutes les façons possibles », a-t-il ainsi affirmé.

Au passage, la doctrine militaire russe considère aussi l’Otan comme une menace…

« C’est une chose d’avoir des Etats voisins avec une position neutre, c’en est une autre quand ce sont des membres de l’Alliance atlantique qui cette fois déclare explicitement que son objectif consiste à contenir la Russie, sa ‘menace principale’ », a encore fait valoir M. Lavrov.

Pour la Russie, la perspective de voir la Suède (et la Finlande) rejoindre l’Otan n’enchante guère, dans la mesure où le contrôle de l’île suédoise de Gotland permettait de verrouiller la mer Baltique en cas de confrontation. En outre, en cas d’invasion des États baltes, elle pourrait constituer un « porte-avions » naturel.

Finland Flexes Military Muscles Alongside US Troops, Armored Vehicles




2,300 Finnish and 185 US soldiers, as well as hundreds of pieces of military hardware will be involved at military exercises in western Finland, according to local media.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Military exercises involving US troops begin in western Finland on Monday, amid controversy that has surrounded the Northern European country’s involvement with NATO for years, local media said.

The drills near the Finnish village of Niinisalo involve 2,300 Finnish and 185 US soldiers, as well as hundreds of pieces of military hardware, among them 20 Stryker armored vehicles, Finland’s public broadcaster Yle reported.




Lt. Col. Pekka Purtonen, who oversees the exercise, told the broadcaster that the drills merely offered both militaries a chance to learn from each other. He also excluded the presence of NATO soldiers on Finnish streets.
"The timetable for the maneuvers is very tight. In practical terms, the soldiers will hardly leave the exercise area and they won't have any free time," Purtonen told Yle.
The exercises stirred a great deal of controversy in Finland, which has been maintaining its neutrality despite increasing NATO pressure and claims of a threat from the east. A poll commissioned by the Finnish government found last week that 55 percent of Finns opposed joining NATO, while only 22 percent approved it.

Finland May Turn to Drones To Supplement Combat Aircraft
Gerard O’Dwyer, Defense News 6:13 a.m. EDT May 5, 2016



HELSINKI — Finland’s center-right government’s tightening grip on public spending could result in the acquisition of fewer combat aircraft in the Finnish Air Forces’ (FAF) HX Fighter Replacement Program (HX-FRP).

Such a path to procurement strengthens the possibility that economic and affordability factors could see Finland acquire a fleet of combat drone aircraft to supplement the FAF’s operational needs and support its overall capability.

The Finnish economy is slowly entering a new growth phase after seven years of recession and austerity-led public spending cuts. Big-ticket capital programs, such as the FRP, are being more closely scrutinized to ensure delivery of optimum value.

The FRP is expected to include an aircraft acquisition cost of between US$7 billion to US$10 billion depending on the aircraft type selected. The budget for the total lifecycle cost for 64 aircraft can be expected to run to an estimated US$25 billion to US$30 billion.

Lockheed Martin to provide GMLRS to israel, Finland, Jordan and Singapore


Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control was awarded a $331,760,390 foreign military sales to supply Israel, Finland, Jordan, Singapore with Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) alternative warhead rocket pods.






Lockheed Martin Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Alternative Warhead (AW).

Under the US Army awarded contract, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control has to supply 290 Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) alternative warhead rocket pods, 34 unitary rocket pods and 529 reduced range practice rocket pods, the US Department of Defense announced Thursday.

GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. GMLRS Unitary rockets greatly exceed the required combat reliability rate and have established a reputation for affordability.

The Alternative Warhead is designed to engage the same target set and achieve the same area-effects requirement as the old MLRS submunition warheads, but without the lingering danger of unexploded ordnance.

Work will be performed in Grand Prairie, Texas; and Camden, Arkansas, with an estimated completion date of March 31, 2018.

Bear Scare Brings Finnish Army Drill to a Halt

A brown bear disrupted a military exercise in Finland after it strayed inside a military base where 3,000 members of a paramilitary brigade were brushing up their combat skills, the newspaper Iltalehti reported.

Finding its way inside the base perimeter the animal gobbled up the soldiers’ meals and then started tearing up the personal effects of the fighting men who had wisely chosen to take cover inside army trucks to stay out of the way of the deadly threat.

Happily, no one was hurt.

“Bears normally stay away from people, but this one wasn’t scared at all,” the Kainuu brigade’s press secretary told the newspaper.

Deciding that the bear posed a threat to the soldiers, the brigade’s commanders contacted the police requesting permission to kill the intruder. Permission was granted and the bear was “neutralized.”

According to the newspaper, that was the first time a bear had strayed inside a military base in the past 13 years.
The Kainuu brigade, stationed near the town of Kajaani in central Finland, is one of the three permanent readiness brigades in the Finnish Army.

Sweden, Finland Stress Defense Cooperation Ahead of Russian Visit
Gerard O’Dwyer, Defense News 12:23 p.m. EDT June 24, 2016


HELSINKI — Nordic unaligned states Sweden and Finland are to further deepen bilateral defense collaboration as part of a coordinated action to strengthen national defense systems and inject a greater level of stability into regional security.

The road map to closer military cooperation was discussed during a two-day Foreign And Security (FAS) summit hosted by Finland. The two-day meeting, which was attended by political leaders and senior security officials, ended Monday.

Russia’s destabilizing influence in the region featured prominently during the summit meeting, which took place at the Finnish President Sauli Niinistö’s summer residence at Naantali in southwest Finland.

The summit talks took place ahead of a planned meeting in Finland in July between Niinistö and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. The two leaders last met in Moscow in March.

Finland hopes to use the July meeting to build stronger political, trade and security relations with Russia. Relations between the two countries remain somewhat cool as Moscow continues to frown on Finland’s deepening military relationship with NATO.

Saab wins in Finland

27th June 2016 - 13:23 by Trevor Nash in London





Saab Training & Simulation has signed a contract with the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) for the delivery of its BT46 laser-based tactical engagement system (TES) to the Finnish Army. The company has not disclosed the contract value of the training systems.

The FDF ordered 100 Leopard 2A6 MBT's from the Dutch Army in 2014 that included BT46 training systems. These vehicles are currently being delivered and Saab has now received a follow-on order from the customer for an upgrade to the training systems.

The upgraded systems will be deployed to two regiments, the armoured brigade at Parolannummi and the KASI site in Säkylä. KASI is the Finnish Army’s mobile combat training centre (CTC).

‘Finland has used Saab's training simulators since 1980 and in the mobile combat training centre (KASI) since 2004. The Finnish Defence Forces can now train up to battalion and brigade level, which really strengthens their capability in the field,’ explained Anders Gardberg, head of Saab in Finland.

Included in the contract are new control panels, computer and interface units, transport boxes, cables, Finnish manuals, new tactical radio interfaces and a support contract.

‘With this order for BT46 training systems, the Finnish Defence Forces will have the best [live] simulator on the market for training…combat vehicle…[crews]. This order definitely strengthens Saab's position as one of the world's leading suppliers of combat training solutions,’ said Åsa Thegström, head of Saab's training and simulation business unit.

The BT46 system is a well proven simulator that has already been delivered to more than 20 countries supporting both combat training with vehicles and their weapons in addition to crew-served weapons.

More than 7000 BT46 vehicle simulators have been delivered for use in over 100 applications worldwide.
The KASI system, a national training resource, can be deployed to any location in Finland and is used for pre-deployment training for international missions as well as supporting regimental combat exercises.

The system was most recently deployed as part of Exercise Arrow, a US-Finnish joint exercise held in May.

The Finnish contract marks the latest TES success for Saab. Over the past nine months, the company has been contracted to supply TES equipment to New Zealand, the Netherlands, the US and Sweden. Its next major export opportunity is likely to be in Poland where the Polish Army is actively looking for a CTC.

Saab's latest version of BT46 features a virtual insert that dynamically depicts the round’s tracer and smoke effects.

Good as New! Finland to Buy Second-Hand Howitzers From South Korea


Finland's Ministry of Defense, which has been suffering from budget cuts, has been discussing the procurement of second-hand military equipment with South Korea in order to update its forces in the most cost-effective manner.


Finland's ambition is to update its rapid response forces, which can be deployed quickly. The purpose of the future contract is therefore to enable the support for the operational troops with artillery equipment that features both a long range and good mobility on rugged terrain and on roads. The South Korean hardware is set to partially replace obsolete artillery during the 2020s and 2030s, Finland's Defense Ministry reported.
By its own admission, the Finnish army has studied the supply and prices on the international market for both new and used 155 mm self-propelled artillery systems, and is currently pondering the acquisition of South Korean K9 Thunder artillery pieces.

According to the Defense Ministry, the K9 Thunder artillery pieces are suitable for military training and appropriate for the Finnish conscript army due to their cost-effectiveness. The Finnish Defense Ministry believes that the Korean ACS will provide the necessary performance at minimum cost. Negotiations are still underway, which is why no details of the transaction have so far been disclosed.

The K9 Thunder is a South Korean self-propelled 155 mm howitzer developed by Samsung Techwin for the Republic of Korea Armed Forces. The development program of this howitzer has been underway since 1989. The South Korean Army received its first batch of K9 Thunder units in 1999.
The list of current K9 operators includes India, Poland and Turkey. Among other European nations, Denmark is pondering the prospects of acquiring K9 weaponry.

Last year, Finland's Defense Ministry was instructed to develop a plan for saving the funds it was allocated. At present, savings of 60 million euros are planned for the 2016-2020 period. The savings are expected to be made possible through staff cutbacks and the reduction of working hours of staff involved in logistics and management. The Defense Ministry also expects to reduce the flight hours of McDonnel Douglas F-18C fighters and Airbus NH90 helicopters, as well as the cost of recruit training.
Earlier this year, the Finnish army was reported to have joined the so-called Nordic Combat Uniform (NCU) project from 2020, in a move to give Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish troops the same outfits. The collaboration is expected to yield significant savings.

Finnish Defense Minister Under Fire For Dealing With UK on the Sly


Finnish Defense Minister Jussi Niinistö has landed in trouble after a defense deal with the UK he notoriously signed during the NATO Summit in Warsaw. Remarkably, the critics had no trouble with the deal itself, the main complaint is that it was reached in utter secrecy.

Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Antti Kaikkonen of the ruling Center Party wondered why Defense Minister Jussi Niinistö of the Finns Party failed to inform the committee in advance of the proposed arrangement on defense cooperation with the United Kingdom, the Finnish newspaper Hufvudstadsbladet reported.
Bilateral arrangements are, by definition, important for the committee. In this case, the importance is enhanced due to the upcoming Brexit, Kaikkonen wrote in his blog. Defense Minister Niinistö defended his failure to notify the committee by explaining that the document wasn't particularly important to Finnish foreign policy.

Kaikkonen said the Foreign Affairs Committee had the right to decide which foreign and security policies it was interested in. According to him, the committee had just before midsummer asked for — and was granted — the information from the Defense Ministry on a similar document on cooperation between the United States and Sweden.

"I think it would have been a very natural occasion for you to inform us that Finland was just about to sign a document on defense cooperation with the EU's main military power Britain," Kaikkonen wrote, recalling the constitutional obligation to inform the Foreign Affairs Committee on issues pertaining to foreign and security policy.

The Foreign Affairs Committee's Vice Chairman Pertti Salolainen of the National Coalition Party said that the Committee has been repeatedly forced to complain about the defense minister's failure to inform them in accordance with the constitution.
"The agreement with Great Britain is only the latest example in a long line of things. If Finland has defense agreements with other countries, it is important that we know it. A similar agreement with the United States is in the works. We demand that we get all the information about it," Salolainen said.

In Warsaw, Jussi Niinisto and his British colleague Defense Minister Michael Fallon signed an agreement, aiming to strengthen cooperation. The agreement includes join training and exercises, crisis management operations, as well as an exchange of information and standardization. The document contains no commitments in relation to a common defense.

 Modernisation des derniers Hawk finlandais !  





L’armée de l’air finlandaise va procéder à une mise à jour du dernier lot d’avions écoles BAe Hawk Mk51. La modernisation comprend une refonte complète de l’avionique actuellement basée sur une instrumentation de type analogique.

La présente flotte d’aéronefs Hawk Mk51 et Mk66 permet d’offrir un entraînement de base et avancé aux pilotes affectés aux escadrons de première ligne équipés de F/A-18C et F/A-18D à la base aérienne de Tikkakoski. Ce nouveau contrat comprend l’adaptation de la suite avionique intégrée Cockpit 4000 d’Esterline CMC (Canada) pour sept avions d’entraînement Hawk Mk51 additionnels actuellement en réserve dans leur état analogique original. La modernisation vise à accroître la qualité de l’entraînement au vol en améliorant l’efficience de la formation à bord et en étendant l’entraînement présentement offert à bord des appareils Hawk.



La suite avionique modernisée comprend les produits suivants de CMC : le calculateur de mission à architecture ouverte de haute puissance, un collimateur tête haute (HUD) SparrowHawk™ à large champ de visualisation et un panneau de commande à l’avant, deux écrans multifonctions de 5x7 po (un dans chaque poste de pilotage), et un répéteur HUD pour l’instructeur assis à l’arrière dans l’aéronef. La suite avionique comprend également des programmes de vol opérationnels établis et éprouvés qui intègrent les capteurs, les radios et les systèmes d’armes de l’aéronef permettant de satisfaire un large éventail d’exigences de navigation et de mission. La solution avionique standard de CMC réduit le travail d’intégration requis pour l’installation à bord.

Rappel :

Les Hawk Mk51 de BAE Systems sont en service auprès de la Force aérienne finlandaise depuis 1980 et la version Mk51A fut livrée en 1993. CMC a été choisie par Patria en 2007 pour doter huit avions d’entraînement à réaction avancés Hawk Mk51 de poste de pilotage tout-écran modernisé, destinés à la Force aérienne finlandaise (FINAF).

La FINAF a acheté, en 2007, 18 appareils Hawk Mk66 de la Force aérienne suisse afin de les ajouter à sa flotte de Hawk Mk51 modernisés. En 2010, Patria a sélectionné le poste de pilotage tout-écran intégré Cockpit 4000 de CMC dans le cadre de la modernisation de ces avions d’entraînement Hawk Mk66 destinés à la Force aérienne finlandaise. Ce contrat a été mené à terme en 2012. À l’achèvement de ce nouveau contrat annoncé aujourd’hui, la FNAF disposera d’une flotte de 31 appareils Hawk modernisés, dont 16 avions d’entraînement avancés Mk66 et 15 Mk51.

La Finlande négocie un accord de coopération en matière de défense avec les États-Unis


Posté dans Diplomatie, Europe par Laurent Lagneau Le 23-08-2016




Opposée à la Russie lors de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale, la Finlande respecta une stricte neutralité entre les blocs de l’ouest et de l’est par la suite. Et, avec l’implosion de l’URSS, ce pays, qui fut autrefois un territoire russe entre 1809 et 1917, intégra l’Union européenne, comme son voisin suédois. Mais pour l’un comme pour l’autre, il ne fut jamais question de rejoindre l’Otan.

Toutefois, depuis maintenant quelques mois, et avec l’intensification des activités militaires russes dans la région de la Baltique, la question d’un adhésion à l’Alliance atlantique a été mise sur la table, tant à Helsinki qu’à Stockholm. Et cette perspective est loin de réjouir la Russie, qui partage une frontière de 1.500 km avec la Finlande.

En déplacement dans la capitale finlandaise au début du mois de juillet, le président russe, Vladimir Poutine, a prévenu. « Que pensez-vous que nous ferions dans une telle situation? Nous avons reculé nos forces à 1.500 km de la frontière. Vont-elles rester là-bas ? La façon dont ils assurent leur sécurité et leur indépendance est le choix des Finlandais. Mais il est évident que nous apprécions le statut de pays neutre de la Finlande », a-t-il en effet affirmé.

Pour le moment, la Finlande n’envisage pas de rejoindre l’Otan. En revanche, elle compte renforcer sa coopération militaire avec les États-Unis, comme l’a fait, en juin, la Suède.

Selon le ministre finlandais de la Défense, Jussi Niinistö, un accord allant dans ce sens fait actuellement l’objet de discussions. Ces dernières devraient aboutir d’ici l’automne prochain et l’élection présidentielle américaine.

Cet accord « couvrira les domaines où nous travaillons déjà ensemble, comme la formation militaire, le partage de l’information et la recherche », a confié M. Niinistö à l’agence Reuters. Aucune clause d’assistance mutuelle n’est prévue.

Dans son dernier Livre blanc sur la défense, Helsinki dit craindre les visées de son voisin. « La Russie utilise un large éventail d’instruments militaires et non-militaires pour défendre ses intérêts (…). Le recours à la menace ou à la force militaire contre la Finlande ne peut être exclu », indique en effet le document.

Toutefois, les autorités finlandaises cherchent à maintenir un dialogue de haut niveau avec Moscou, au point de recevoir le président russe en juillet (les pays membres de l’UE qui l’ont fait depuis l’annexion de la Crimée, en mars 2014, se comptent sur les doigts d’une main). Enfin, le pays a même confié la construction de la centrale nucléaire de Hanhikivi au russe Rosatom.

Finland Wants Defence Pact Before US Elects New President
(Source: Finnish Broadcasting News, YLE; issued Aug 22, 2016)
Speaking in an interview with Reuters news agency, Finnish Defence Minister Jussi Niinistö said that Finland is in a hurry to sign on the dotted line to cement a defence cooperation agreement with the United States.

Niinistö told Reuters that Finland would like to seal the deal before the outcome of the US presidential election in November.

"We want to get the agreement ready during the autumn. However I am convinced that our cooperation with the USA will continue regardless of which candidate is elected President," Niinistö told the agency in a telephone interview.

The proposed bilateral defence cooperation agreement would cover military training, information exchange and research and does not include any clauses compelling either side to provide support during combat situations.

Finland has recently signed a bilateral defence agreement with the UK and has deepened defence cooperation with neighbouring Sweden.

Finland fires Bonus artillery rounds for first time


Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

18 November 2016



Finland has conducted its first firings of the Nexter/BAE Systems Bonus Mk II top attack artillery projectile, the Finnish Defence Forces announced on 17 November.

The firings were conducted from a Finnish 155 mm K 98 (GH 52) towed howitzer. Each round contains two anti-tank sensor-fuzed munitions. Once deployed the sub-munitions descend and rotate by parachute, using infrared and laser sensors to scan for targets. Targets are then defeated via top-attack by the munition's explosively formed projectile warhead. The Bonus round utilises base-bleed technology to extend its range out to 35 km.

Finland decided to purchase Bonus in 2014.
