  WIP report - Finland at War 1939-1945
Work in progress
 

Von Rundstedt released screenshot on our forums showing the M/26 Lahti-Saloranta LMG.

Quote Von Rundstedt:
M/26 Lahti-Saloranta LMG
The weapon was able to fire in both full automatic and semi-automatic modes. M/26 was extremely accurate and earned name "rapidfire rifle". Finnish Army only used 20 round box magazine (instead of 75 rounds drum) which didn't really support weapons capabilities. Even greater mistake was that parts were too tight, which caused jamming when dirt got inside. Finnish soldiers prefered Soviet counterpart DP-27 over domestic M/26
