Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today we are showing of our second Eastern Front map: Arad. This map has been made by hitm4k3r, and was inspired by the Red Orchestra map of the same name.
On the 14th of September 1944, the 2nd Ukrainian Front under General Malinovsky launched it's own Belgrade Offensive in conjunction with the 3rd Ukrainian Front. Six days later Arad was captured by Romanian and Soviet troops after engagements with Hungarian forces. By the end of September 1944, Malinovsky and General Friessner had received new orders. Malinovsky was now ordered to attack towards Budapest from the salient to the south around Arad, meanwhile Friessner's orders included an attack from Oradea to slice through the Soviet lines and capture the Carpathian passes. With the start of the Battle of Debrecen on the 6th of October 1944, Malinovsky's southern pincer was attacking near Arad slicing through the Hungarian Third Army. The attack by the northern 2nd Ukrainian Front pincer ran into difficulty quickly though, colliding with two panzer divisions of the German III Panzer Corps - the 1st and 23rd Panzer Division.
You can find the minimap and a preliminary vehicle listing here.
