Welcome to day 7 of The Road To 0.6 press release. Exactly one week ago we started on our journey on the road to 0.6, since that time we have shown you high quality polished models, and even given you 9 maps to toy with.

Before you check out todays new items, be sure to check out History Is War. This fan made web site allows you to battle it out and develop your character. It is kind of like an RPG for BF1942, it is not a mod and works directly with Forgotten Hope. The only downside is the site is in German, but still worth checking out!

Today we are going to show off two new skins for existing vehicles in Forgotten Hope. First is the American Corsair F4U reskin. Secondly the American F6F Hellcat. Check out these two awesome reskins below!

  INFO:  

The Corsair's most unique feature was the "bent" wing, the result of a marriage between the most powerful engine ever installed in a piston-engined fighter at that time, and one of the biggest propellers in the world. The inverted gull wing permitted the short, sturdy undercarriage required for carrier operations, gave the pilot better visibility over the wing and lowered the height of the folded wing. An added asset of the gull wing was a planing action during emergency water landings.

    America
  INFO:  

The F6F was ordered for the US Navy after the initial shock of Allied contact with superior Japanese fighters, particularly the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, during the first few months of the Pacific War. As a result of this experience of combat against higher-performance machines the Hellcat's specification required the most powerful engine available. The prototype X6F-1, a progression from the F4F Wildcat which was then the standard fighter of the Navy, was provided with a 1700hp Wright R-2600 engine, but a month later - on 26 June1942 - it was re-engined with a 2000hp Pratt and Whitney R-2800 (the birth of the F6F therefore coinciding almost exactly with the great carrier Battle of Midway, 4-6 June 1942, in which its predecessor - the Grumman F4F Wildcat - played a critical role).


That concludes todays press release, be sure to check back tomorow for another update!
