Stats / Data
Suomi KP/-31 would stand for Finland Machine-Pistol 1931, often referred to just as Suomi KP, this particular firearm would be classified as a SMG under modern definitions. Designed in 1921, revealed to the public in 1925 and officially entered service with the Finnish army in 1931. While the rest of the world was suffering from the Second World War, Finland was facing the red menace of Soviet Union alone at northern Europe, Suomi KP accompanied Finland from the Winter War, Continuation War and until finally the signing of the Moscow Armistice.
Suomi KP operates on a simple blow-back mechanism, chambered for the 9x19mm Parabellum/Luger cartridge, this SMG is capable of firing up to a rate of 900 rounds per minute, able to cover an effective range of 200 metres. The most innovative feature on the KP is the "open-jaw" magazine well, which allows the use of a Swedish pattern double staggered-row magazine (coffin clip), as well as the conventional staggered-row clip of 20 rounds, though the Finnish Army issue Suomi is often found with the 71-round large capacity drum magazine. Other design details on Suomi KP include the single piece wooden block as the gun frame and the stock, air cooled barrel and right side shell ejection port.
Suomi KP's derivatives include the famous Soviet PPSh-41 and the Degtyaryov's DDP-40, both are developed based on the Suomi KP units captured by the Red Army with their advancements into Finnish territories. It is likely due to them being being rush produced to adapt to the new war tactics, their performance is still below that of a Suomi KP, their predecessor showed a better accuracy rating thanks to it's longer barrel while having with the same large magazine capacity and high rate of fire.
Initially designed as a substitute to a light machine gun, but however the pistol cartridges could never cover the effective range of a LMG and thus it was proven inadequate for that task, instead through trials and adjustments Finnish Army developed the tactic of using Suomi KP as a short range support/assault type weaponry alongside their rifle and machine guns.
Historical facts would suggest that Suomi KP was probably one of the most successful SMG of that era, being one of the first mobile weaponry with the fully automatic firepower of a LMG and having a better performance than all of it's derivatives. Due to the high production cost and some exporting of weapon prior to the war, the Finnish Army was armed with only 4,000 units of Suomi KP when the Winter War broke out in 1939. At the time the also poorly equipped, ill mobilized Red Army never expected a light mobile weapon with a high fire power like the Suomi, resulted in heavy Red Army casualties during the Winter War.
The first character Anmi contributed to Girls Frontline, Suomi features the typical Nordic blonde hair with blue eyes. The cloak she wears was designed with reference to Finnish army uniform during the Winter War. Anmi comments that her knee high socks was meant to be black, but under the advice of Phantania-san it was changed to white.
Suomi artwork by Anmi
- To celebrate Suomi receiving a CV, Anmi has drawn a special image of Suomi holding a microphone, likely to represent Suomi's personal interest in music and/or the CV Toyosaki's fame in her music making career (see "Gallery" above). Toyosaki Aki is well known for her performance as the CV of Hirasawa Yui of K-On!, other than the anime Toyosaki also have several songs released as singles and albums.
