Northern Fronts - Scandinavia in WW2

Recommended Posts

Hello again for yet another preview!

We'd like to show some more of the new and updated assets in the modification, which are mostly aimed towards the Continuation War.

On the first image of this teaser you can see the brand new Finnish Border guards. Border/Frontier Guards took part on the fighting as separate companies and battalions subordinated to the Army. Frontier troops were renowned for their expertise in ranging and local knowledge, because of this, their units were elevated to "Border Jaeger" status after Winter War as reward for their good performance.


Cavalry has also received updated uniforms. On the second and third image you can see Uudenmaan Rakuunarykmentti's (URR) Dragoons in an parade formation. The regiment (although battalion sized) based its traditions on the renowned hakkapeliitta's of the 1600's. The honorary colonel-in-chief of the Dragoons was the Field Marshall Mannerheim himself. The regiment fought the war both mounted and dismounted - however in 1943 it was reorganized to an bicycle battalion whilst still retaining the old name and traditions.


Rather forgotten, but very important were the Finnish Navy coastal (artillery) troops. As rear-line units they were equipped with older and more varied equipment supplemented by whatever was captured. It was their responsibility to guard the many islands and coastal areas on the Gulf of Finland. They saw heavy fighting during the summer 1944 offensive, namely at the Vyborg Bay. The defenders of Suursaari also faced and thwarted a German landing operation later the same year.


Last and not least: Let us return to Battle of Summa during the Winter War - Where Soviets have brought in one of their chemical (flame-throwing) tanks!

This mod is looking so very very good. Looking forward to playing on it with my group in the future. I've only tested it out a little but everything is looking and sounding great. Only issue I've found is that the rear MG view on the T-28E seems obstructed by the tank itself when aiming in most angles. Maybe something to look into.


Keep up the good work! Loving it!

I do really like this mod good work I must say. I would really like to see the The Rikstanken Light Tank in the Norwegian army it was the only tank they had and they also had 3 armored cars the Panserbil 21, Panserbil 22 and Panserbil 23. And that is all of the armored forces of Norway in WW2 and would really like to these vehicles.

Here are some info about them.

Rikstanken: https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/category/ww2-norwegian-armor/

Panserbil 21: http://aviarmor.net/tww2/armored_cars/norge/panserbil_21.htm

Panserbil 22 and Panserbil 23:http://aviarmor.net/tww2/armored_cars/norge/panserbil_22.htm

Hope its possible to see them in The Northern Fronts - Scandinavia in WW2 mod for Arma 3.

Hello, i'd like to report a bug with this mod while using ACE (Specifically ACE Advanced Throwing) where you are unable to prime/cookoff your grenade anymore.

Love this mod, absolutely adore it, but I'd like to know is there a chance we could see more WW1 era stuff? As mhm far as I know there was quite a bit used still during the winter war, be that weapons and even gear. Stuff like the Fedorov or even Imperial Russian clothing of Finns and Russians.

I've got to say I am impressed with the work you've done with this mod. I will not play a WW2 scenario without it loaded.

Thanks for the warm words here! 😃


We have been bit more quiet in here but there has been some progress on the mod in the meanwhile (although now bit slower due summer heat and all ). We've actually bought a Fedorov model and it will be included in the next patch of the mod. Here is a small recap of progress we've shown on Discord and Twitter, but have forgot to post here (sorry for that).


The next update will contain the BT-series of tanks, Soviet marines, some new infantry and static weapons. In addition Soviet gearing has been much improved in terms of quality. There is also new T-26 variants.
