Default Re: Finnish OOB ATV/Motorcycle/Snowmobile suggestions

While the USMC occasionally uses quad bikes, and snowmobiles, neither is a TO&E item and the number available is small. They're used "as needed". They also have skis and mountain climbing gear (in fair quantities) available, and anyone that stays in more then one enlistment has been trained with them (and maybe 25% of first termers) but there aren't any designated "ski" or "mountain" troops.

These sorts of things can be added by scenario designers but aren't commonplace enough to warrant inclusion in the OOB.

The motorcyles are in because they're a battalion level asset ... and they're kool!
