As you might have already noticed,
we are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our Forum.

We already sent out a Special Operations Squad to investigate the issue, but it looks like they need to setup the whole system on a new machine, so it might take another day or two until we are back.

Don´t forget, you can always join our public IRC Channel #fhmod on gamesurge network if you want to talk about FH2.
With our FH Web IRC Client you don´t even need to install any software.

Sadly it seems that the Gamesurge Webchat Client also has some problems currently with connecting to the IRC server. As an alternative you can go to mibbit webchat and join #fhmod from there. Just make sure that you connect to the gamesurge network.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.

Our render for today is of one of the most famous and well-known Soviet infantry weapons of WWII; the PPSh-41 submachine gun.

The PPSh-41 was intended to be an inexpensive replacement for the older, PPD-40 SMG, which had been in use since the mid 1930s. The PPSh was mainly a poor man's infantry weapon. It was made from wood and stamped steel, with the barrels made from halved M1891 Mosin-Nagant barrels. The result was a simple SMG with a fire-rate of 900 rounds per minute, that could be produced in mere hours in garages and industrial shops by relatively unskilled workers. Over 6 million of these weapons were produced, and thus used in almost every thinkable way. Entire Soviet divisions were sometimes equipped with the PPSh, and even the German Army officially adopted it. However, one of the most bizarre uses, was as a close-air support weapon, where several of these SMGs were mounted to the forward racks of the Tu-2 bomber. The PPSh-41 submachine gun was made by Seth Soldier.

Our winner for this week's screenshot competition is Kelmola. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of Oct. 23rd. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.

Before we get on with this Sunday's update, please welcome our newest developer, Stubbfan, who will be responsible for exporting all of the content created by our 3-D art department, into the world of FH2.

This week we have a render of something that no Soviet infantry soldier should be without; the RGD-33 grenade!

The RGD-33 was a Soviet, anti-personal hand grenade that was developed in the early 1930s, with the primary intention of replacing the older, Model 1914 grenade. Weighing in at only 500 grams, the RGD-33 could be thrown between 30 and 40 meters, where it would then explode with a relatively small blast radius of 10 meters. One of the more unusual features of the grenade was the 250 gram metal fragmentation sleeve, which could be fitted around the top. When this was done, the grenade had a blast radius of 15 meters, and would send out heavier, diamond-shaped fragments. The RGD-33 was complex to manufacture and use, and despite its extensive use, it was slowly replaced by the simpler RG-42 grenade, after the German invasion. The RGD-33 hand grenade was made by Toddel.

Our winner for this week's screenshot competition is AdeQ-187. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of Oct. 16th. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. We are back after a week of silence, with a render of a brand new Soviet service pistol. Enjoy!

The Tokarev TT-33 was a small, semi-automatic pistol that was developed in the 1930s as a replacement for the aging, Nagant M1895 revolver.

The TT-33 started life however, as the very similar, TT-30. After passing its first set of trails and tests, the weapon was eventually accepted for combat use. Even as it was put being produced, small changes were still made to various parts of the pistol, including the barrel, frame, and trigger. The result was the TT-33, which was widely used amongst Soviet forces. Being able to withstand tremendous amounts of abuse, the TT-33 quickly gained a reputation for being very reliable, and thus was very popular with many non-Soviet forces. For example, the 7.62 Tokarev round was very similar to the German, 7.63 Mauser round. Many TT-33s were captured by the Wehrmacht and given the designation, Pistole 615(r). Over 1.7 million TT-33 pistols or variants were produced, and the pistol is still in use today by a few countries. The Tokarev TT-33 pistol was made by Seth Soldier.

Our newly created Screenshot of the Week competition is still going strong! We'd like to give a special shout out to von.small for being picked as last week's winning submission. This week, our winner is McCloskey. You can view the winning pick here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of Oct. 9th. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
