I've just had a look at the briefing for mission 55 in the Finnish campaign. It's to provide air cover for a trainload of artists. Yes, artists! I have heard that some famous Australian artists were used by the AIF to paint camouflage and decoys in the Pacific theatre of war. Did the Finns also deploy artists as strategic resource?

They probably gave alot of military resources to protect their most famous artist of all times:

Good one Vengeanze, quite hilarious. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Unfortunately, Numminen was born in 1940 so he propably wasn't the one who was protected in FB. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
