Simo Hayha, the WWII sniper from Finland. Nicknamed “White Death” because of his white camouflage suit and his ability to shoot in sub-zero temperatures, Hayha was credited with 505 confirmed kills of Soviet soldiers and 542 if the unconfirmed deaths are counted. The unofficial Finnish figure from the battlefield places the number of Hayha’s sniper kills at over 800. Besides his sniper kills, Hayha was also credited with over two hundred kills with a submachine gun, bringing his credited kills to at least 705. Even more remarkable, all of his kills were accomplished in less than 100 days.

Finns are big hunters and depend on hunting for meat for the freezer. so it not unusual for them to have outstanding snipers. also they have a number of companies, SAKO and Valmet both come to mind that manufacture thousands of sniper rifle every year neh. Finland is small country and yet they use thousands of snipers not a few dozen or a few hundred, but thousands. Is much like it is in the Philippines where there are also thousands of Filipino Marine Scout Snipers. And yes SAKO does export some sniper rifles which account for some of their numbers, but not at all by far. Ryo and little brother have make very careful study of the Finnish Defense Force as can be seen in our serie of pics on the Tkiv Sniper Rifles which is just one type of the many types they have develop and deploy. The Finns are expert marksmen and take sniping as a very serious science. Sniping is a kind of force multiplier so with more snipers you need fewer over all forces in the field.

It looks like a MG34 or MG42.
