Defence Forces 100 Combat Exhibition Tour

The Defence Forces will conduct five combat exhibitions during the summer 2018 relating to the Defence Forces’ 100th Anniversary Year. The combat exhibitions will present the activities of the Defence Forces and the capability of its weapon systems.

The opening of the Defence Forces 100 Combat Exhibition Tour will be held at SuomiAreena in Pori in mid -July. In August, combat exhibitions will be carried out in the framework of the Defence Forces 100 Summer Tours in Joensuu, Oulu and Turku in the afternoon before evening concerts take place. The Combat Exhibition Tour will come to a conclusion with a two-day Comprehensive Security 2018 Exhibition scheduled to be organized in Lahti in early September.

The Defence Forces 100 Combat Exhibitions are not recommended for children under the age of seven because they are very realistic and loud. During the exhibitions, the noise level will momentarily exceed 165 dB, so the audience should wear hearing protection. Ear plugs will be made available for the audience in the exhibition area.
