Conscripts at Nyland Brigade
The Nyland Brigade is planned, equipped and trained for battle missions in the demanding special conditions along the coast and in the archipelago.
The Nyland Brigade produces among others coastal jaeger, mortar, engineer, headquarters and signal companies and trains military police, coastal missile men and vehicle and vessel drivers. During their military service approximately 40 % of the conscripts gain substantial leadership training, which is of use also outside of the Defence Forces.
Those who have received international ATU (Amphibious Task Unit) training are qualified for participation in crisis management and peacekeeping missions.
