Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today's update shows the render of the Hawker Typhoon and some in game screenshots of our M10 Tank Destroyer. These two allied weapons greatly contributed to the war against the heavy German tanks like the Tiger and Panther.
First up is the render of the Hawker Typhoon, made by Agus.
The Hawker Typhoon was originally intended as a front line fighter, but when compared to the Supermarine Spitfire in 1941 it quickly became apparent that the Typhoon was vastly inferior. It wasn't until 1943 that the Typhoon's problems had been fixed and since the need for a new front line fighter had gone, it was turned into a fighter-bomber. Thanks to its powerful Napier-Sabre engine, the Typhoon could carry up to 1000kg of explosives. In late 1943, the Typhoon was equipped with rockets, 4 under each wing. This rocket variant proved to be highly successful in Normandy. In all, 3300 Typhoons were made during the war.
Next up we have 4 in game screenshots of the M10 Tank Destroyer, modeled and skinned by Agus, exported and coded by Kev4000.
Finally, we have an M10 Wallpaper. Download by right-clicking the link and selecting "Save Link As".
