"The RF-8 was an aerosan (aerosani or aerosled) used by the Soviet Union during the Winter War and the Second World War. Military use of the aerosan goes back to at least the 1920s. During the 1939_40 Winter War against Finland, some were equipped with a machine-gun ring mount on the roof. The aerosanis were initially used for transport, liaison, and medical evacuation in deep snow, and mostly used in open country and on frozen lakes and rivers. During WWII, aerosanis were found to be useful for reconnaissance and light raiding in northern areas, thanks to their high mobility in deep snow."
