Finnish Sissi Troops (Winter)
includes five Sissi Ski Troop figures.
The Sissi battalions are light infantry units intended for fighting in vast the wilderness of forests and swamps on the Finno-Soviet border. To keep their mobility high they are lightly equipped with rifles and other weapons that can be carried by the men themselves.

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.
