Mod of the Year 2010

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we would like to show you a render featuring the M1938 and M1944 Mosin-Nagant carbines, but before we get to that it's that time of year again...

No, not Christmas. It's voting time for the ModDB Mod of the Year 2014, and FH2 has made it to the Top 100 again. We'd like to say a big thank you to our fans for voting us this far, and we hope that you will vote for us in the Top 100 round as well.

The adoption of the M91/30 rifle gave the Red Army a modern and dependable rifle. However, they were still using the M1907 carbines, which had been out of production since before the revolution and were based on the older M1891 rifle. The design for the new M38 carbine was finally accepted for production in February 1939. It was essentially the same as the M91/30, with a shortened barrel and stock, a rear sight graduated to only 1000 metres and a slightly modified front sight mounting.

The carbines were issued to artillerymen, engineers and other soldiers who while not front line troops may have need of a rifle. In this case, it was not felt that a bayonet was needed, and so the M38 carbine was not issued with one and was designed not to accept the M91/30 bayonet. However, the fierce close quarters combat of urban battles such as Stalingrad demanded a smaller and more convenient weapon. The M44 was born out of the simple brief to make an M38 with a bayonet.

The bayonet of the M44 is a permanently attached folding spike. The M38 stock was modified with a groove to accept the bayonet when folded, but beyond this there were no changes. By 1944, many M38 carbines were fitted with M44 stocks. While the M44 was in production since 1943, it never reached the desired level of issue, and saw most of it's action post-war. These Mosin-Nagant carbines were made by Seth Soldier.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have an announcement from the guys over at Forgotten Honor as well as a render and a few screenshots of some equipment that has been provided by allies or stolen from enemies. But before we begin, we have a short message.

We are always looking for more help. At the moment we are particularly in need of people who can do animations or sounds, however if you think you can help us in some other way don't hesitate to apply. More information on the application process can be found here.

Within 3 months of the start of Operation Barbarossa, the first British aid to the Soviet Union had been delivered. The Arctic Convoys carried aircraft, raw materials and tanks. Starting in 1942, the Soviets were provided with 301 Churchill tanks, of which 43 were lost before they arrived. Trials conducted with the newly arrived tanks showed mechanical problems, and the opinion of these new tanks was low.

The Soviets received 2008 Universal Carriers from Britain and Canada. They were primarily issued to scout and reconnaissance units. While they were provided along with Bren guns and Boys rifles, these were often replaced with domestic weapons. About 3300 M3A1E1 Scout Cars were provided to the Soviets. This was a modification of the standard design, fitted with a Soviet made Buda-Lanova diesel engine. They were used as reconnaissance, command and prime mover vehicles.

In most cases the vehicles recieved kept the paint schemes that they arrived wearing, with Soviet identifying markings added on top.

The Germans captured a great number of T-34 tanks during their advances into the Soviet Union. A great many of these were pressed into service, both before and after receiving modifications (most usually fitting cupolas from damaged Pz III or IV). Since using the same shaped tank as the enemy is a risky move, the T-34s were painted with many large visible crosses.

This is just some of the new captured and lend lease equipment in Forgotten Hope 2.
