Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. We are back this week to present a render of another lightly skinned vehicle. This one however, will be better suited to the green hills of Italy rather than frozen tundras of Russia.
We are of course talking about the Fiat 508 C.M. light utility vehicle!
The Fiat 508 started life a civilian vehicle in the 1930's, with the military version being produced from 1939 all the way to 1945. It was created to fulfill the need for a good, inexpensive cross-country vehicle. Although it was not produced in numbers near that of the American Jeep or German Kubelwagen, the 508 earned a reputation for being both reliable and robust throughout the Italian colonies and North Africa. It featured a 39-horsepower engine with a 'soft-top' roof, and could carry up to four soldiers. Surprisingly however, it did not feature all-wheel drive. The Fiat 508 C.M. was made by Kraetzer.
We would also like to let everyone know that this week is the 18th Forgotten Hope Game Night (FHGN). Be sure to join all of your fellow players on Saturday, the 27th of August, for a night full of Forgotten Hope 2! Make sure to check the forums throughout the week for more information.
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.
