Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
We'd like to wish everyone a very happy new year! We achieved a lot of progress on the content for our next release last year, and we are looking forward to what we can do this year as well. We have also taken the decision to name our releases going forward, as we think this will make them easier to remember and talk about. To that end, our upcoming next release will be version
This name refers to the Compagnons de la libération, members of the Order of Liberation created in 1940 by General de Gaulle to honour people and communities who had distinguished themselves in the campaign to liberate France. We will be including 2 maps as well as new weapons, new vehicles and many changes to existing content.
The famous Canon de 75 Mle 1897 has already been featured in Forgotten Hope 2 since our first French release, however this was in the M38 form with pneumatic tyres. The original gun had been designed to be towed by horses, and was fitted with solid wooden wheels with steel tyres.
In 1939 and 1940, the Germans captured many hundreds of these guns from Poland and France respectively. While many of these would be converted into PaK 97/38 anti-tank guns, many were also used unmodified as second line artillery pieces. Our Mle 1897 and FK 231(f) were modified from our Mle 1897 M38 by Seth Soldier.
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, our Twitter, our subreddit, and/or Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
