Finnish soldiers in Iraq. Finland sent 50 soldiers to Iraq to train Kurdish Forces against ISIS.

Your problem is that you believe that Finland and Russia were enemies post-WWII. Finland was a neutral country post war and actually kept incredibly close relations with the Soviet under Urho Kekkonen; they were arguably closer to the Soviets than the west for the majority of the Cold War.

Also, you might find it weird for them to use weapons based on Soviet designs, but that doesn’t mean any of us have anything wrong with us. Hell, I know plenty of US soldiers who have ‘ditched’ their rifles in Afghanistan and Iraq for an AK or something either for a short period of time or for the full deployment (noticeably less for the full deployment.)

Also, the problem in your train of thought is that Finland’s military is mostly conscripted, which means they need a rugged rifle that’ll last them forever without needing heavy maintenance, and that’s the RK62. I know quite a few Finns and they’ve told me the serial numbers and manufacture dates of all their rifles, and of 9 Finns and 13 or 14 rifles, not a single one had a rifle made after 1970. Show me an AR-15 rifle that’s currently in active use (not by some weekend warrior, but actually out in the field) in any military around the world that was made pre-70 and I’ll be fucking amazed.
