Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

This time we will be introducing perhaps a slightly lesser known vehicle, the T-20 Komsomolets Armoured Tractor.

The T-20 was developed in 1936, using a modified hull from the T-38 amphibious tank. It was intended to act as a tractor for smaller artillery pieces such as the 45mm anti-tank gun or the 120mm mortar. Up to 6 of the weapon's crew could be seated on the back, while the driver and commander were protected in the fully armoured front cabin.

Nearly 7000 T-20s were in the Red Army at the start of Operation Barbarossa, and they suffered high losses with just over 1600 remaining a year later. The Germans, Romanians and the Finns all captured and used the T-20 for themselves. The Finns used them until 1961. There were some modifications made, the Soviets armed about 100 with ZiS-2 anti-tank guns and used them in the defence of Moscow, and the Germans similarly used a few with Pak 35 anti-tank guns. Our T-20 was made by Kraetzer.

The battle for Sicily and Italy was a war of attrition, resulting in hundreds of thousands of casualties for both sides of the conflict. Although often overshadowed by the Western and Eastern fronts, the Italian Front represented was crucial for the war effort by eliminating a major axis power, mobilizing a massive international coalition from nations from North and South America, Europe, Africa, India, and Oceania, and diverting major resources from the Eastern Front.

In this campaign, you will get the choice to serve as an Allied liberator, storming the beaches of Italy and liberating Rome itself, or serve as an Axis defender, defending mountains and cities known from antiquity. Tactics and cooperation will be critical in deciding the fate of the peninsula.

Every week your team's skills and planning will be tested against an equally determined enemy.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a render of another Soviet weapon: the PPS-42 submachinegun.

The PPS-42 started life with a Red Army request for a more compact and lightweight replacement to the PPSh-41. The new design would also have to be cheaper and faster to manufacture. The design by Alexei Sudayev that became the PPS-42 more than halved the machining time and raw steel usage compared to the PPSh-41.

An initial production run of about 45000 was constructed at the Sestroretsk Arsenal starting in December of 1942. Since this was inside the Siege of Leningrad, these weapons saw extensive combat testing. The improved PPS-43 replaced it in production by the middle of 1943. Our PPS-42 is made by Seth Soldier and you'll be able to find some of them on maps set in the vicinity of Leningrad such as Sammatus.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of another Soviet weapon that you'll be able to find out on the battlefield, the DT.

The DT is essentially the same weapon as the DP light machine gun designed by Vasily Degtyaryov, only with some modifications to make it more suitable for tank use. The magazines were smaller in diameter and fatter, holding more ammunition. Despite the intention for use as a vehicle mounted weapon, it was often used as an infantry weapon due to its larger capacity magazine and slightly lighter weight. Our DT was made by Seth Soldier, and you will be able to find it mounted to vehicles and laying about in pickup kits.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a map that some of you might have already seen in one of our Dev Streams. It is of course Pegasus. This map was made by the talented Otolikos, and features several custom buildings such as the Château de Bénouville made by Toddel and the Horsa Bridge made by Gurdy and Nissi.

Of course, the most important statics for any map covering Operation Deadstick are the Bénouville Bridge (renamed Pegasus Bridge after the war) and the Café Gondree, both of ours made by Nissi. You'll be able to defend these by day, or capture them by night in the smaller 16 player layer.

The first objectives of D-Day were two bridges spanning the Caen canal and Orne river, codenamed "Pegasus" and "Horsa". The plan called for a glider-borne surprise attack in order to overwhelm the ill-equipped defenders as fast as possible. After this was accomplished, the paratroopers were to dig in and wait for reinforcements coming in from Sword Beach.

While this part of the plan worked well, the Germans reacted quickly and as the sun rose on the morning of the 6th of June 1944, tanks and armoured infantry of the 21st Panzerdivision closed in on the beleaguered bridgehead.

You can find the minimap and a preliminary vehicle listing here.
