Finnish Army Jaeger Platoon (Current)

The following is the current organization of the Finnish Army Motorized Jaeger Platoon, or Jääkärijoukkue PAJON, effective as of 2018. This based off of the "Jääkärijoukkueen ja -ryhmän käsikirja" published in 2018, roughly "Handbook for the Platoon and Group), supplanting an organization from 2005 that saw 8-man groups and a slightly larger, albeit similar, platoon headquarters.
