Finnish Special Jägers, 2014

I know this could be just a stupid wiener measuring contest, but there is one indicator available: the “aftermarket”. Special forces contracts are always temporary because of the age requirements (ca. [10 years](http://sofrep.com/18632/working-with-finland-spec-ops-snipers-simo-hayha/)). So, former operators are often hired by private military companies or security contractors. On this market, Finnish operators are well-received. (There was a Finnish TV program about this a while back.) The benefit of this indicator is that it doesn’t depend on the forces’ *current* equipment, mission or tools: the only thing that comes out of the contract is the person and his quality of training.

As for mission, funding and equipment, it’s no secret that Finns are late to the party, and the requirements have been somewhat relaxed. Finland hasn’t been very actively involved in offensive wars lately, only in “peacekeeping” (politics). But this is because of Finnish government policy and not because of the operators and officers themselves.
