Is the Finnish F-18 going to become the new EPBV (or whatever that Swedish recon vehicle is)?
My mouth is moving, but nothing relevant is coming out. Also I cannot guarantee that my research is perfect or even remotely accurate.

I have low quality Wargame Red Dragon casts on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/XanderTuron

McDonnell Douglas actually was in pretty dire need of the good old green, which is why they were as aggressive in marketing the F-18 everywhere as they were. But to be fair, so was USSR, which is also why they marketed the MIG-29 as aggressively as they did. Both knew Finns had the means to pay them and seriously needed them to. So the Finns are financing both US air industry and USSR. :lol:

Because Finland should never have been a RedFor country and the reasons given for making it one are, frankly, specious.

My suspicion is that Eugen is secretly running a salt mine, and giving the best F-18 ASF in the game to Redfor was a measure to increase production.

Honestly not entirely sure how we're supposed to be salty about the Finnish Hornet. It's not like this is the first time we've seen this happen.
