Finnish Brewster B-239 fighters on the runway. Finland ordered 44 Brewsters from the United States. Originally a naval craft meant to take off from carriers, the Brewsters sent to Finland were de-navalized. Though other nations had little success with the aircraft, Finland used it with great effectiveness against the Red Air Force in the Continuation War (1941-1944). The Brewsters of the 24th Squadron claimed 477 Soviet aircraft to the loss of 19 Brewsters, a ratio of 26:1.
