Typo: February 1944 not 1945, since Finland sued for peace with the USSR in September 1944. Arms deliveries from Germany would have had to come before then, likely May June 1944 not "in late 1944." [EDIT: Not so, apparently! See below for Sept. '44 delivery].

The Germans had codes for all captured weapons, including Russian and Soviet models.

Document is very clearly dated February 1945.
Fair enough. As indicated, the "Lapland War" was on while the German bureaucrat typed it up with three months left in the war. The arms transfers would not have been in "late 1944" in any case. [I stand corrected. See early September dates on Jarkko's posts...]

The German sign says: "Thanks for nothing 'brothers in arms'" /s.
