Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

We have prepared a new release of Forgotten Hope 2 with a few small technical updates.

  • The ForgottenHope2.exe has been updated to fix the issue where a MG might fire when you try to zoom.
  • The Launcher has been updated with new discord links.
  • The BF2 Language Changer should now also set the correct keyboard layout.

Otherwise there have been no content related changes, so the update size is just a few Megabytes. Servers do not need to update.


FH 2.55 will be released around noon on the 28th of february 2019.


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, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have an announcement to make regarding a public test session this coming Saturday, where we will be putting the map Motovskiy Bay by Ts4EVER through some gameplay testing. This has been organised with CMP Gaming, who will also be testing a couple of their own Community Mappack maps in the same event.

To join the playtest, you will need to use the latest version of the CMP Community Updater, which can be found here. Just download the archive, extract anywhere and run the installer.

Alternatively you can download the files directly from these links:

Set in April 1942 in the Arctic Circle on the coast near Murmansk, this map mirrors the incredibly sparsely populated and barren landscape of the area. This map is pure infantry combat, with no supporting vehicles or heavy guns.

Obviously this map is very much an early work in progress, but we would gladly like you all to come along and help us take a look at how it plays. You can leave any feedback you have in the feedback thread on our forums or over on our Discord.

CMP are also going to be testing their maps Berlin and Khalkin Gol in the same event.

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, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Vast Variety of Violence - Part 4

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of a new rifle that will be equipping the United States forces, the Springfield M1903A3.

While the US entered the war with the M1 Garand as its standard infantry rifle, there were the inevitable shortages and delays that lead to the M1903 Springfield rifle seeing widespread use in the first few months. In anticipation of this, production of the Springfield was re-continued in September 1941 using vintage tooling stored since 1919. As this started to wear out, many milled parts were replaced with cheaper stampings, and the original ladder sight on the barrel was replaced with an aperture above the bolt.

Called the M1903A3, the rifles with these changes would see frontline service alongside the Garand, particularly seeing use for launching rifle grenades and with the Rangers. Our M1903A3 has been made by Seth Soldier.

Mersu Christmas and a Happy New Year

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off renders of the G-2 variant of the BF 109, but first:

Mod of the Year Awards

We'd like to thank all of our fans for voting for us in the second round of this year's ModDB Mod of the Year! Once again, we have managed to get enough votes to earn an honourable mention in the Player's Choice - quite the feat for a mod that has been released for 11 years now.

The G series of the Messerschmitt BF 109 fighters was largely identical to the preceding F series, with most of the changes happening inside. Small incremental changes such as heavier reinforcing of the wing structure and additional cooling scoops for the spark plugs were intended to update the F-4 frame to take the new more powerful DB 605A engine, which increased the available horsepower by over 100 to 1445hp.

Produced starting in early 1942, the G series would go on to be the most numerous of the BF 109s.

The Finns bought 162 of the G series starting in 1943, with the first batch arriving in March. 48 of these were the G-2 variant. The Finns had great success with their Messerschmitts, scoring 667 victories for 34 losses in the air. After the war, they would continue in service with the Finish Airforce until 1954.

Our BF 109G-2 was originally made by Toddel, with Finnish markings added by Matt Baker.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

We'd like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas, and what could be a better present than another StuG? We'd also like to thank everyone who voted for us in the ModDB top 100 mods of the year, and we are looking forward to finding out the results!

In the spring of 1943, the Finnish Armed Forces made a request to Germany about acquiring assault guns. With a positive response, an initial order for 45 was placed, though ultimately only 30 of these would be delivered and paid for. At the same time, training was provided to a small group of Finnish officers and men in Germany, and at their request the order was expanded to include all the support vehicles that would normally equip a German StuG battalion.

On arrival in Finland, the Schürzen and mounts were removed, a wooden tool crate was fitted to the rear deck and spare roadwheel mounts added to the side of the superstructure. The gunshield on the roof was modified to take a DT instead of an MG34, and three tone camouflage was painted over the original dunkelgelb. There were other changes made later, including additional side armour, improved armour for the driver's vision slit and concrete added to the front of the superstructure. The most obvious of these changes was the addition of logs to the sides above the fenders. Known to the Finns as the Stu 40 G, they would quickly pick up the nickname Sturmi.

While the Sturmis were on the front line from the summer of 1943 onwards, they would face their biggest tests at the battles at Kuuterselkä, Tali and Vuosalmi in the midsummer of 1944. Across these three engagements, they would knock out 87 soviet armoured vehicles for only 8 losses. The StuG was by far the most modern armoured vehicle that the Finns had in 1944, and was well liked by its crews, who found it to have excellent outside visibility combined with a good gun, allowing them to see and to shoot first. Perhaps their main complaint was the underpowered engine and narrow tracks limiting its performance off-road.

A further 29 vehicles were delivered that summer before the Finnish capitulation in September, but these would see little service during the Continuation War. Finland still had 45 Stu 40 Gs when they were declared obsolete in 1959, and many of these would go on to be dug in as pillboxes. Our Sturmi was made by Toddel.
