Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today we have some great in game screenshots of our Normandy landing craft and a beautiful French Chateau, but first we would like to show a render of the new American M10 Tank Destroyer.
The M10 was modeled and skinned by Agus.
US tank and anti-tank doctrine in World War 2 called for two separate classes of armoured vehicles; slow tanks to support the infantry (such as the Sherman) and quick tank destroyers to take on the enemy tanks (such as the M10). The M10 was in this respect not a very good design. Its 3 inch (76.2mm) gun was only a bit better than that of the Sherman and while significantly faster, not manouvrable enough to function in its intended role. When first used in combat during Operation Torch it proved to be an adequate measure against most German tanks, but against the Tigers and Panthers in Normandy it had little success.
Next up are some in game screenshots of the 2 infantry landing craft you will be seeing on our Normandy beach maps. The LCA was made by Toddel and coded by ctz, the LCVP was made by Remdul and coded by Gunnie.
Finally we have this beautiful French chateau, made by Toddel.
