I've studied and board wargamed the Finns vs the Russians in '40 many times in the past.

Well, if the Finns and/or Swedes do sign on with NATO, we may be able to get a direct comparison in ultra-modern times soon with the Ukrainian conflict, if the Russian threats prove to be serious, and not just hot air.

At this time Putin/Russia is in no condition nor has the skills required to attack anyone else being stuck in the Ukraine. Lossing large numbers of personnel and equipment, but still finding the time to commit war crimes.

The Brave Russian solders found out quick that woman and children can be raped and murdered easy!

It would seem so … sadly … E.g. they did the same in WWII Berlin.
