    I beleive that the MT-410 in Ilmavoimat service was a Morraine Soulner design, not a Messerscmitt; anteeksi/sorry for any wrong spellings.

    But as to weather they had a Me410 (or 210), I doubt it unless the Northern Norway/Finnish Lapland based Airflotte had one on/to hand.
    I'm too intruged to find what was/if... could any Soumalainen's or other knowledgable members help us?

    The Bf 109G in Finnish service wore fuselage codes prefixed "MT"; MT-410 is an individual Bf 109G-6. For example, the highest scoring Finnish ace was Ilmari Juutilainen who flew Bf 109G-6s MT-426 and MT-457 (and Bf 109G-2s MT-212 and MT-222). That's all I got.

    looks nice Evan!

    Besides Luukkanenen (11 victories in MT-201) other primary pilots to fly MT-201 were Hans Wind (11 victories - MT-201) and Olavi Puro (7 in MT-201) plus other pilots.

    MT-201 claimed 32.5 victories in total.
