Vast Variety of Violence - Part 5

Posted by: Eat Uranium
05.05.2019 18:00 GMT

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a render of a German submachine gun, the MP 38

The MP 38 grew from a German Army request for a compact submachine gun that could be easily carried and used by armoured vehicle crews and paratroopers. Erma had a prototype that seemed to fit these requirements in their EMP 36, and with some modifications to simplify the design it became the MP 38. One notable feature retained was the rail under the barrel that could be hooked over the door or side of an APC and allow firing from within without the risk of the muzzle falling inside the armour.

The MP 38 has a couple of notable and easily visible differences from its more well known replacement, the MP 40. The machined magazine well has lightening holes cut into the sides and lacks the reinforcing ribs that the MP 40 design transitioned to to allow thinner steel. The receiver is a single machined bar of steel, and has distinctive lightening slots cut into it. This single part is the main change that was introduced with the MP 40, which is really just an MP 38 updated to use stamped parts.

About 42000 MP 38s were manufactured from the summer of 1938 through to about 1942, with MP 40 production starting to replace them in 1940. Our one has been modified by Seth Soldier from our MP 40 made by Hail of Nails and Rad.

To Russia with Love

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a couple of renders of some old friends in new clothes. As part of the program of Lend-Lease, the UK and the US provided the Soviet Union with thousands of tonnes of supplies - everything from rubber to trucks. Amongst this essential supplies were also provided many hundreds of armoured fighting vehicles.

The Soviets first learned of the M10 in March 1943, though they were not seemingly enamoured with the concept, taking several months to order just two for evaluation. One of these was used to measure mobility and reliability, which was determined to be good. Certainly as good as the domestic equivalents and very similar to the M4A2 tanks. The only real objection was to the open top. Gunnery trials were delayed into 1944 by a lack of ammunition, and while the gun was liked, the crew ergonomics were not.

Only 50 M10s were ordered, and they finished arriving about the same time as the gunnery trials completed. They were delivered critically short of spares and other equipment, and training proceeded with a lack of manuals with crews who had not any previous tank destroyer experience. In the end, 44 of these vehicles were split up between the 1223rd and 1239th Self Propelled Artillery Regiments, who used them in Belarus and Poland respectively. No more M10s were requested, instead the M4A2(76)W would take its place. Our Soviet M10 was modified from the original by Agus by Matt Baker.

The Valentine was perhaps the most liked of the various tanks received by the Soviets from the British. Small, reasonably well armoured and with good reliability, they could be found on the front lines all the way from Moscow in the winter of 1941 through to the end of the war. Replaced in British service by the Churchill by mid 1943, it remained in production through to 1945 almost exclusively to equip the Red Army.

The tank went through several different designs, and was produced in both the UK and Canada. The Mk VII variant was a Canadian built version of the Mk II with a new US made transmission and GMC 6004 engine. More parts were made by castings, and the BESA coaxial machinegun was replaced with a M1919A4. In total, the Canadians would make 1420 Valentines, with all but a handful being sent to the Soviets. Ours was modified from Montoya's Mk II by Matt Baker.
