Weapon Background[edit]

The Suomi KP/-31 ('Suomi-konepistooli', or "Finland Machine-pistol") is a Finnish-designed submachine gun used by the forces of Finland primarily during the Second World War. The Suomi KP/-31 is regarded by many as as one of the most successful submachine gun designs of World War II. The effective use of the Suomi KP/-31 by the Finnish military against the Red Army during the Winter War would lead Soviet designers to begin designing their own submachine guns.[1]

The weapon that would become the KP/-31 was designed by Aimo Lahti and Lieutenant Y. Koskinen, and was developed from an earlier design, the KP/-26. A number of changes were made to that earlier gun, with the most notable modifications being the switch from 7.63mm Mauser to 9mm Parabellum and a new type of magazine. This new magazine, a 71-round drum magazine, would later be copied by the Soviets for use in the PPSh-41 submachine gun. In order to produce enough Suomi submachine guns for the Finnish military, Lahti's company would partner with Tikkakoski, an industrial iron and lumber company based in Finland. The production of the Suomi would mark Tikkakoski's entry into the firearms production industry.[2]

The Suomi operates on a simple blow-back mechanism, and is capable of firing up to a rate of 900 rounds per minute. One of the most innovative features on the KP/-31 is the "open-jaw" magazine well, which allowed for the use of a Swedish-pattern double staggered-row magazine (often called a 'coffin magazine'), as well as the conventional 20 round box magazines. However, the Finnish Army-issue Suomi is most often found with the 71-round large-capacity drum magazine. Externally, the Suomi appears similar to many other submachine guns of the time, with its single-piece wooden body, semi-pistol grip stock, and tubular metal receiver. Something that was unusual for a submachine gun at that time was that the Suomi had a quick-change barrel. Given the weapon's rapid rate-of-fire, barrels would often get hot during sustained fire. This quick-detach barrel system allowed a Finnish soldier to swap out an overheated barrel for a fresh one should the need arise.

The Finnish Defense Forces were equipped with only 4000 Suomi KP/-31 submachine guns when the Winter War started in late 1939. This was due to the cost of the Suomi. The KP/-31 was produced to a higher quality standard than most other weapons of World War 2. This, in the long run, proved to be one of the few limitations of the weapon - it was simply too expensive and time-consuming to produce in the large numbers required of war time. The design arrangement also made the Suomi KP/-31 rather heavy for a submachine gun, but this in no way detracted from its battlefield usefulness, as the weapon proved to be incredibly effective in combat - especially at close quarters. The KP/-31 was issued to Finnish infantry squads, who made exceptional use of them in guerilla attacks on Soviet Army forces. The Finns proved experts in their knowledge of the home country and utilized the environment to their advantage, in a few instances even laying waste to entire Red Army elements. Captured Soviet weapons were reused whenever possible, and the Finns ultimately dealt blows to both the notion of Soviet invincibility and Russian national pride, embarrassing the Red Army on the world stage. Despite their larger numbers, the Red Army was handicapped by logistical and equipment problems, as well as by Stalin's "Great Purge", which removed many capable leaders from their posts prior to the invasion, effectively watering down his immense fighting force. The Finns did go on to lose territory in the war, but managed to force an interim peace and maintained their sovereignty. The Soviets lost nearly 127,000 men (including 188,600 wounded), as well as 5,500 tanks and over 400 aircraft in the foray. Finnish losses during the Winter War numbered some 26,000 soldiers.[3]

The Suomi would continue to serve after the conclusion of World War 2, and remained in active service with the Finnish military well into the 1980's. Production of the Suomi would be licensed to several other countries, including Sweden, Denmark, and Switzerland.

Character Design

The first character contributed to Girls Frontline by well-known character designer Anmi, Suomi features the typical Nordic blonde hair with blue eyes. The cloak she wears is in reference to the Finnish army uniform worn during the Winter War.

Trivia

  • During the Continuation War, some Finnish soldiers modified their Kp/-31s by attaching an under-barrel flamethrower device which known as the m/44, designed by Sgt. M. Kuusinen in the spring of 1944. However, the effective range of the M/44 flamethrower was only 12-15 meters, making it less effective than a regular flamethrower. The device also suffered from a number of major problems, such as the igniting system being fragile and often ineffective to the point that the device failed to work properly in windy conditions. Finnish troops from Engineer Battalion 35 utilizing the device participated in the attack on Kagrakangas on August 16th, 1944. While the device itself was scrapped or destroyed post-WWII, some of them were still in service with Finnish Border Guards until 1970.[5][6]
    • Some later improvements to the M/44 included a switch that automatically extinguished the flame if the operator was badly injured or killed, thus minimizing the risk of the fuel tank exploding.
  • To celebrate Suomi receiving a voice actress, Suomi's character artist, Anmi, drew a special image of Suomi holding a microphone. This is likely to represent Suomi's personal interest in music and/or the CV's fame in her music making career (see "Gallery" above). Suomi's voice actress, Toyosaki Aki, is well known for her performance as the CV of Hirasawa Yui of K-On!. In addition to her work on music anime, Toyosaki has also had several original songs released as singles and albums.
  • A Suomi KP/-31 was used as a backup weapon by famous Finnish sniper Simo Häyhä during the Winter War.
  • When firing, Suomi's chibi sprite is shown gripping the drum magazine like a foregrip, a style of handling the gun that would also be observed with Soviet troops armed with the similar PPSh-41 submachine gun.
