interesting place, if you really want to turn it into a tourist attraction, it would be good to restore it and put a guide dressed according to the time and explain what, like, why that shelter was used.
There is another bunker system on an isthmus further north near Joensuu. It has been made into a museum with tours and all.
 
Lotta is the base dog of the Finnish crisis management team operating in Lebanon and the real head of Camp (UNP 9-1). According to the official job description, Lotta is a mascot by profession. Lotta, who thrives among the Finns, is a Conscientious Worker and is always there where the Finns are: in training, parades, guard duty and patrol command meetings. Lotta also has the important task of being the recipient of endless crunches, but also keeping the other animals under control and away from the base. Lotta eats and lives in her own corner in the Finland area of the camp, and the vet at the base takes care of Lotta's health care. According to the genealogy, Lotta is about four years old and found her way to 9-1 some years ago, but there is no more detailed information about Lotta's earlier stages. Happy name day Lotta!

Survivability is a soldier’s ability to survive against threats posed by the enemy and operating environment. Survivability is improved with new body armour, helmets and ballistic inserts. The soldier’s load will be lightened with new load-bearing equipment, sniper’s will get a new 7.62 Rifle System M23 and 8.6 Sniper Rifle M10, as well as spotting equipment. Also mobility is the soldier’s ability to move and navigate using various methods during any time of day and in any kind of weather.
