Winland makes them strong and sharp.
Another great national hero, Eino "Illu" Juutilainen, was also an outstanding rifleman. This skill served him well as a fighter pilot in the wars with the Soviets. Illu was such a fine marksman that he aimed not for just the enemy plane, not just for the engine, but for particular spots on the engine, rear gunner, or pilot of the enemy aircraft. Starting the Winter War in canvas-covered Bulldog biplanes and antiquated Fokker D.XXI fighters, Illu and his fellow pilots faced swarms of the latest Soviet high-performance fighters and bombers. In the process, they invented aerial combat techniques that became widely used during World War II and are still taught today. Thanks to his fearlessness, situational awareness, and uncanny marksmanship, Illu scored 94 kills during the Winter War of 1939 and the Continuation War of 1941-1944. It is a further testament to Illu's skills that his aircraft never took a single round from enemy aircraft.
