Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off La Hardt, the second and final of the maps coming in our Compagnons update. As with Medjez El Bab, it features the French against the Germans, however here it is much later in the war when the concept of "Free France" had simply become "France" again. La Hardt also comes with limited singleplayer support.

Before we get to that though, we are pleased to present the work of CptBocquier and John Tomasson with our trailer:

In September 1944 the campaign for the liberation of Alsace began. The 1st French and the VIIth US Army encountered stiff resistance in the Vosges Mountains against an enemy determined to defend a land that was attached to the Reich in 1940. In November, the French finally broke through the Belfort Gap, rolling down the plain from the south towards Colmar and liberating Mulhouse on the 21st.

With the Germans managing to reorganize an effective line of defense north of the city, flanking operations were launched in the La Hardt forest in order to take the Chalampé bridge on the Rhine. This would threaten the supply lines of the 19th German Army encircled in the Colmar pocket. From November 28 to December 3, bloody fighting raged in the woods to repel the French forces behind the Huningue canal, until the Jagdpanthers of the Schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 654 gathered for the final assault...

La Hardt was made by La Hire, who has also put together a devblog that covers some of the history and theory that went into the making of the map that you can read here. You can find the minimap and a preliminary vehicle listing here.
