The literal translation of Sissi is guerilla, but as they are still regular, rather than irregular, troops and part of the Finnish Army. A term like ranger or commando may be a better description of their role. However, their fighting methods did have a lot in common with guerilla warfare, with the use of hit and run, and ambush tactics.
