The Pori Brigade (Finnish: Porin prikaati), based in Huovinrinne, Säkylä and Niinisalo, Kankaanpää is a Finnish Army unit, directly under the Army headquarters. It comprises six battalion-level units and also trains soldiers for the Finnish Rapid Deployment Force.

  1. ^ The lineages of most Finnish regiments and brigades during the war are rather badly defined, as the peace-time units were formally disbanded at the beginning of the Winter War and the tables of orders were changed multiple times. Usually, brigade lineages include the Winter War units which were formed of the units of the pre-war regiment of the same name, and Continuation War units which formed the post-war regiment of that name.
