Mod of the Year 2010

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off some playermodels. Eagle eyed viewers may have seen them already in our recent Dev Stream of Pegasus Bridge, but for those of you who missed it, they are of course the British Airborne.

The first British airborne units were formed in 1940 at the request of Churchill, who was impressed by the success of German airborne operations in the Battle of France. The 1st Airborne Division was formed in 1941 and followed by the 6th in 1943. While the 1st Division fought in Italy and at Arhnem, it was the 6th Division that would land behind the beachheads on D-Day.

Perhaps the most visible difference between the airborne and the normal infantry was the Denison smock. This camouflaged jacket was intended to be worn over a parachutist's equipment to stop it snagging. Our Airborne models were modified from Rad's original African models by Remdul.


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

We are now accepting entries for the week of May 25th. 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 time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have some renders of Soviet antitank equipment, as well as announcement by Forgotten Honor.

Soviet engineers had lacked the experience needed to design an anti-tank gun in the late 20s, and had turned to the Germans for assistance. The company Rheinmetall had worked on what would eventually become the PaK 35/36 in secret, and the plans for this were provided to the USSR where it became the 37mm Anti-tank Gun M1930 (1-K).

The first 45mm guns were a result of the desire for weapons that could use a more effective high explosive shell and thus double up as battalion guns. They were made from an updated 37mm carriage fitted with the new larger gun barrel. About equivalent in penetration to the Pak 35/36, the 45mm M1937 (53-K) was thus a rather poor weapon in the face of the larger panzers.

The 45mm M1942 (M-42) was a result of these shortcomings. It had a longer barrel, more powerful cartridges and a new gunshield. Despite these additions, it still struggled with the improved panzers of the period, though it could deal some damage from the side. 37,354 M1937 guns and 10,843 M1942 guns were manufactured, and several hundred of the former were captured and turned against their former owners by Finland. Our guns were made by Toddel, modified from the PaK 35.36 made by K98.

The 57mm Anti-tank Gun M1943 (ZiS-2) began life in 1940, with the demand for a powerful anti-tank weapon issued under the false assumption that the Germans would invade with heavy tanks on a par with the KV-1. It first entered service as the M1942, but was production was quickly stopped since it was overpowered, expensive and had complicated to manufacture ammunition. The production facilities were switch to the production of the 76.2mm Divisional Gun (ZiS-3).

The appearance of the Tiger and Panther soon convinced the Soviets to restart manufacture of the 57mm gun, which re-entered service as the M1943. A limited number of guns were mounted on vehicles, principally the T-20 Komsomolets armoured tractor and as the T-34-57. 9,645 were manufactured, and ours was made by Kraetzer and Toddel.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing of our third Eastern Front map, and also our first map from the Continuation War: Sammatus. This map is based on sn00x's Kuuterselkä, and has been worked on by Kev4000, Schism-RVTL and Fuchswiesel.

After securing the crossing of the river Syväri in East-Karelia, the Red Army advanced towards the Finnish Pisi-Saarimäki-Sammatus line. The PSS-line was adequately prepared to face the formidable adversaries, but sections of the defences were still unfinished. On 23rd of June 1944, the Red Army conducted an amphibious landing at Tuulos on the shores of lake Ladoga just north of the PSS-line and on the 24th the fighting at the line itself commenced.

The Red Army managed to puncture a hole in the Finnish defences at Pisi. With the dire situation at Tuulos, Major General Aarne Blick gave the order to withdraw and abandon the PSS-line in order to avoid any Finnish troops getting trapped in the pocket. However, the message didn't reach the defenders of Sammatus until a day later...

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