Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have an announcement from Forgotten Honor as well as a couple of renders of an important Soviet assault gun, the SU-76 (also known as the SU-12) and it's more successful derivative, the SU-76M.

At the start of the war, the Red Army could call on only a handful of self-propelled guns for infantry support and tank destroying. In late 1942, orders were given for a light self-propelled gun armed with the 76.2 mm Divisional Gun ZiS-3. The winning design was Factory 38's SU-12. This used a lengthened version of the T-70's hull, fitted with an enclosed or canvas roofed case-mate at the rear.

The SU-76 had the same twin engine setup as the early T-70, and the problems this caused were severe enough that production was halted after just 350 had been made. The update to the SU-76M took about 3 months, and involved moving the two engines over to the righthand side of the hull, and lowering the armour protection at the rear. This later change led to the nickname 'bare-arsed Ferdinand', and made the crew extremely vulnerable.

The SU-76M replaced almost all the infantry tanks in the Red Army. It had such a low ground pressure that it could follow infantry through swamps no other vehicle could, and the large cannon and ease of communication between the crew and supporting infantry made it effective in urban environments too. Both our SU-76 and Su-76M were made by Toddel.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone of our loyal fans a happy new year. To start off 2013, we have a render of perhaps a lesser known Soviet tank: the T-70 light tank.

Even as early as 1942 the Soviets considered light tanks to be obsolete, especially compared to the T-34. However, light tanks had the advantage that they could be constructed in small factories that were unable to manage with the larger medium and heavy tanks. In 1942 the T-70 was introduced to replace both the obsolete T-60 reconnaissance tank and the complicated and expensive T-50 light infantry tank.

The first T-70s to roll off the production line were fitted with two engines, each of which powered one track. This was not an ideal setup, and the tank was soon modified to the T-70M with both engines mounted on the right and working together. The turret was also simplified and the mounting moved to the left hand side.

One big drawback of its design was its cramped turret, which was only big enough for one crew member. A version with a bigger turret was produced as the T-80 starting in 1943, but by that time there was enough lend-lease matériel flowing into the Red Army that the light tank was declared obsolete and all production stopped. 8226 T-70s were constructed in total, and ours was made by Toddel.
