Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. This week's update is somewhat of a special one. Not only is today's render of a prominent vehicle in Forgotten Hope history, but we are also announcing the start of a new weekly screenshot contest. Enjoy!
Our render for today is of a vehicle that holds the title of being the first creation for the original Forgotten Hope modification - the BA-64B!
The BA-64 was a small, lightly armed, 4x4 armored car that was used by Soviet armies primarily for reconnaissance and liaison tasks. Nicknamed 'Bobik', the BA-64 was armed with only a DT light machinegun, and suffered from a lack of any major weapons. However, this did have its advantages. Combined with excellent maneuverability and speed, these nimble scout cars saw large success in urban combat. BA-64s were even able to fire on enemy soldiers hiding on the top floors of buildings and low-flying aircraft since the gun was able to be elevated so high. The BA-64 was produced from 1942 - 1946, with an estimated 9,110 made. The BA-64B was created by Toddel.
Since the initial release of Forgotten Hope 2, players have been taking and sharing screenshots all across the internet. Well now there is a way to put your photography skills to work. With the start of this week we are making known a new weekly contest - the Screenshot of the Week!
Starting today, we will be accepting one screenshot submission from anyone who wants to participate. At the end of the week, the best one will be picked, and featured on our website for one week. You can look here for all of the rules and submit your screenshots.
Lastly, we would like to let everyone know that the monthly Forgotten Hope Game Night (FHGN) is almost upon us! Be sure join your fellow players on Sept. the 24th at 18:00 GMT for some intense FH2 action! A quick 'thank you' to the Forgotten Honor tournament for hosting the server. See you out there!
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
