The Finns were most elated at the capture of Soviet weapons, and were only to happy to turn then onto their former owners...especially when they captured Soviet made tanks...the Russians were VERY lucky that Finland had such a small army......but in the end the Soviets did the same thing they did to the Wehrmacht, simply overwhelmed with human-wave tactics and overran the Finnish defenses with an inexhaustible supply of soldiers...
