On the Suomi M31 card, the year is 1945+.
However, this SMG was avaiable during the winter war (1939-1940).
So the year of use must be instead 1939+ .


In the followings expensions :
Finland #1 Exp 32
Finland #2 Exp 33

It was an artifact from using the M2 carbine as the base stats for it. shake

It seems also that 1942+ for M/26 Machine Gun is pessimistic...from same source and also an Osprey book about Winter War 1939-40.

The M/26 won a Finnish Army competition in 1925 where it was selected as the army's main light machine gun. Production started in 1927 at the Valtion kivääritehdas (VKT), State Rifle Factory, and lasted until 1942. More than 5,000 weapons were produced during that time. China also placed an order for 30,000 M/26s chambered for 7.92×57mm Mauser in 1937, but only 1,200 of these weapons were actually delivered due to Japanese diplomatic pressure.
