Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. It is time to unveil some new content for the British forces today. But before that we have some community news to spread. The Soldiers of Virtue are hosting an Forgotten Hope tournament - The Fall 2006 - is beginning in September 2006. For more information you can visit here.
Landing in the bull's-eye is today's first item. Named after the two Shanghai police officers who invented it, William E. Fairbairn and Eric Anthony Sykes, we have the Fairbairn & Sykes Commando Knife for you. Its 7.5-inch blade will put you on excellent terms in any close combat situation. Although not standard issue for most troops, it was a sought after item among both US and British troops. The Fairbairn Sykes was created by Rad.
Our second object of interest today is the Bristol Type 156 Beaufighter Mk.IC. It served in almost all theatres of war and performed a variety of missions--from heavy fighter to torpedo bomber. More than 5,500 were produced between 1939 and 1945. Furthermore this aircraft was one of the first to be equipped with an airborne radar set. This multipurpose aircraft will come in very handy against the Germans in Africa. It was modeled by FH2 Betatester SirFluffy and skinned by AceS.
That's all for today, but be sure to come back next week for another Forgotten Hope update. And don't forget to join us on IRC. Feel free to visit our public forums to discuss this update or other news.
