It seems the Finns won't get any armour, but will they have some AT guns or is it going to be a satchell-sneaking party all round :D

Yep Finns will get a few paks and plenty of fausts to counter the Russian armor. It's gonna be tough for the tanks to roll through those trenches too.

Forgot to mention the Finns get a nice new camo for their pak 40s ;D it's based off Toivo Ilomäki's pak that took out 16(?) russian vehicles during the actual battle.

It's not just his PaK, it was a "standard" camo pattern used on many things. Lance Corporal Ilomäki destroyed 17 Red Army tanks during the afternoon on 24th of June 1944 when the battle on PSS-line started, including Sammatus where Ilomäki was stationed. Most, if not all, vehicles that he and his crew destroyed were T-34's. Overall he destroyed 21 tanks in total. He was awarded the Mannerheim Cross of Liberty. The PaK40 he used in the battle of Sammatus can be seen at the Parola armour museum: http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toivo_Ilom%C3%A4ki#/media/File:Pak40_parola_1.jpg

One question - are the T-34 and SU-76M both equipped with HE rounds?
