Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
We'd really appreciate you sending a vote our way, and as a thank you we have an upcoming French weapon to show off.
The M1921 Thompson submachine gun was the first production model of John Thompson's "trench broom". Produced by Colt for Auto Ordnance in a single batch of 15000 in 1921, sales of this very expensive weapon were slow. By 1938 there were still 4700 unsold, and with the threat of war in Europe picking up the French placed an order for 3000 of them.
The French found their Thompsons to be too heavy and expensive, and most were in storage during May 1940. The majority that were issued went to gendarmes and a few to tank destroyer crews. In the Vichy period, more of these guns were issued out, and it is in this context that the Mle 1921 will see service in FH2. Ours has been modified by Ashton from PointBlank86's original M1928.
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, our Twitter, our subreddit, and/or Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
