Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today we are showing off a map that shouldn't come as a surprise to many of you. All the way back in July 2019 Ts4EVER posted part one of a series of videos that step by step showed off his thoughts and methods of how to make a map for FH2. You can see the full playlist here. The map of course was Operation Mars, the large Soviet assault on the Rzhev salient who's failure led to it falling into the shadow of the simultaneous success at Stalingrad.
A remnant of the failed German bid to capture Moscow, the Rzhev salient was pointed at the Russian capital like a dagger. Throughout 1942 and early 1943, the Red Army attempted to remove this threat in a series of costly offensives, earning this battlefield the nickname "Rzhev meatgrinder". Now, on the 25th of November, they launch another attack in cold and snowy conditions. Despite horrendous casualties it would later be overshadowed by the concurrent Operation Uranus, which lead to the victory at Stalingrad.
Operation Mars is the latest of the maps made by Ts4EVER. You can find the minimap and a preliminary vehicle listing here.
