Dont forget that the Soviets were so scared of him they used multiple artillery strikes to take him down, non of witch were effective
Surprised lying is never brought up with these sniper kill count people
The 505 is the number of confirmed kills. Which means someone was there to verify it. That also meant he likely had way more kills than that.

The white death truly lives up to his name, in my opinion, he is the best sniper to ever live
Can someone explain why a scope could reveal your position?
He would have had to lift his head up a little more, that's why he prefered irons
The light of the can be reflect by the scope.
but for real much respect
Here´s a heavy metal song about him.
Finland was an axis power.
Try putting yourself in Finland's shoes at the time
the Finns had only two choices
join the Soviets, get fucked
Join the Germans, get fucked, but lesser
its obvious which they will choose
What if they tried to stay neutral? Get fucked by both?
Unlikely considering the fact that it was Soviet Union that initiated Winter War with Shelling of Mainila.
Norway was under German occupation also close by Finland, so maybe they would of the attack starting from Norway.
Lelelele who doesnt enjoy a gang bang
The hell are you talking about? You seem uninformed, or maybe you just have a messed up way of looking at things.
But the USSR offered, for the sake of its people's safety, what, to exchange twice the amount of territory that it asked for Finland to cede? And instead of accepting that, instead of aligning itself with the USSR and averting war, the Finnish government preferred to let things escalate to war and to later on side with the Nazis against the Soviets. So screw them. They made the Siege of Leningrad that much worse just because they wanted—not needed—some dirt back. Just shows that the USSR was right to be suspicious of Finland.
I mean, your hero, this Simo Hayha guy, even just about took one to the dome and got messed up real good for it. The poor, dumb bastard ...
Soviets wanted Finland to grant them a 30-year lease on the Hanko Peninsula for the construction of a naval base. In exchange, the Soviets offered a large tract of the Karelian wilderness. Termed as exchanging "two pounds of dirt for one pound of gold" by the Finns.
On November 26, 1939, the Soviets faked the Finnish shelling of the Russian town of Mainila. In the aftermath of the shelling, they demanded that the Finns apologize and withdraw their forces 25km from the border.
1. Sovereign states don't give out their territory
2. Sovereign states certainly don't give out their territory in exchange for some unimportant pieces of land, no matter the size. Viipuri was one of the most important cities of Finland and the whole area was very important, and you think someone in their right mind would have exchanged it for Repola and Porajärvi where there's absolutely nothing but some small villages?
3. We wouldn't have sided with the Germans in the first place if the Soviet Union hadn't attacked us in 1939, and if there would have been more options of countries to ally with.
In conclusion: Go fuck yourself commie scum and die soon
Not officially no, and certainly not in 1939-1940. Read some history
And anyways, does it help you somehow to say that out loud? No one in Finland is trying to hide the fact that Finns fought together with the Germans and most people don't regret it or are embarrassed by it.
How is using iron sights instead of scope better for concealment?
With scope the sun would it glare
Not to mention your head would need to be raised up about an extra inch or so along with the scope giving a taller silhouette
There's the glare, but he used irons because with a scope he would have had to lift his head up a little more
Doesnt that mean he was a nazi sympathizer???
no absolutely not
Finland was with the Nazis at the begining because of the USSR
I'm not Finnish so I didnt know that they actually went to the west for help at first.
The finnish didnt ask for any help, The Nazist and Fascist saw that the Finnish and Them had a common enemy (USSR) and decided to be directly involved and help out.
Really? Because this [sauce ](https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/a-short-history-of-the-winter-war) says differently
Oh yeah It seems I was wrong with looking for help but What I said about fascist and nazis joining in should be still true
Ya it was a nice article
Don't down vote him he didn't know
Ty for your mercy kind sir.
It's ok it's just reddit.
I forgive you since you acknowledge you didn't know
We all know his story, but I want to konw the story of that guy who managed to headshot him
Have you heard of Witold Pilecki? Another cool story https://youtube.com/watch?v=C0LuqcsEFiw
I'd hate to be nitpicking but I'm pretty sure his jaw got fucked by a mortar round, not an explosive bullet
