The 6th Division (6.Divisioona) was a unit of the Finnish Army during the Winter War; its name was later changed to the 3rd Division (3.Divisioona).During the mobilization prior to the Winter War, the 6th Division was placed in the reserve of the Commander-in-Chief Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim. The division consisted of reservists mainly from Satakunta. On 19 December it was attached to the II Corps. The 6th and 1st Divisions were to attack the advancing Soviet forces near Summa. The attack began on 23 December but was a failure.In the beginning of January 1940 the division's name was changed to the 3rd Division. This was done in order to confuse the enemy, but it is uncertain if this had any effect.In January 1940 the division replaced the 5th Division at the Summa front.
