The playfh2.com is a fan-page - but looks pretty good. And yes, get your friends to download it and play. It's super easy now.

New update:

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.

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: https://s3.cmp-gaming.com/files/fh2-...ty-updater.zip

Alternatively you can download the files directly from these links:
minimod: http://dl.cmp-gaming.com/updater/cmp...ll/minimod.zip
map pack: http://dl.cmp-gaming.com/updater/cmp...ack-master.zip

Set in April 1942 in the Artic 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 general feedback section of 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.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we would like to show off a new map called Phoney War:

The Phoney War was an eight-month period at the start of World War II, during which there was only limited military land operation on the Western Front. The term was coined by journalists to derisively describe the six-month period (October 1939–March 1940) during which no land operations were undertaken by the Allies or the Germans after the German conquest of Poland in September 1939.





To encapsulate the unique nature of this period on the Western Front, we’ve introduced a brand new gamemode: Sitzkrieg. In this mode there are no flags to take and no weapons to use. Instead the objective is to observe the enemy with binoculars from the cover and safety of your own trench. At the end of the round, the team with the most “enemies spotted” wins! If you kill an enemy before the timer hits zero, your team loses the round instantly, so make sure not to fire that rifle in anger!



Obviously this gamemode 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. Towards that end, we are planning on having a gameplay testing event similar to our recent test of Motovskiy Bay. This will be a chance to iron out any bugs and issues with Sitzkrieg, as well as for you to get a preview of the gorgeous upcoming map Phoney War.



We will be announcing the time and date of this test over on our Discord server within the next few days, be sure to join to get the latest scoop!

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of an interesting revolver that was both advanced and already obsolete when it was introduced: the Nagant M1895.



The Nagant brothers were well known in the imperial Russian court due to their role in the development of the Mosin Nagant rifles. In the 1890s, the Tsarist army was looking for a replacement to their ageing Smith and Wesson Model 3s, and the design by Léon Nagant was adopted in 1895.

The Nagant is a gate loaded revolver, a conservative choice in a period of top breaking and swing out cylinders. Unusually, the cylinder is cammed forward before each shot, allowing the brass cartridge to form a gas seal with the barrel. This was felt to be important, as it allows for an increase in muzzle velocity, it however had an unintended side effect of allowing the Nagant to be suppressed.



In the early 1930s, the Mitin brothers developed an expansion type suppressor using nine 8mm thick rubber seals to capture the gas behind the bullet. It was clamped over the end of the barrel and required the use of special ammunition with pointed bullets due to the rubber seals. A similar design would later be developed for the Mosin Nagant rifle. Many of these suppressors were used by partisans behind German lines.

The Nagant M1895 was produced all the way from 1896 through to 1945. Intended to be replaced by the Tokarev pistol, it was put back into major scale production during the War. Ours was made by Ashton and RedRogueXIII.

Additionally, before we go, we just have time for a video produced by Mayhemic.MAD that shows a visualisation of the SVN used for FH2 development as the years have gone by.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a couple of renders of some old friends in new clothes. As part of the program of Lend-Lease, the UK and the US provided the Soviet Union with thousands of tonnes of supplies - everything from rubber to trucks. Amongst this essential supplies were also provided many hundreds of armoured fighting vehicles.



The Soviets first learned of the M10 in March 1943, though they were not seemingly enamoured with the concept, taking several months to order just two for evaluation. One of these was used to measure mobility and reliability, which was determined to be good. Certainly as good as the domestic equivalents and very similar to the M4A2 tanks. The only real objection was to the open top. Gunnery trials were delayed into 1944 by a lack of ammunition, and while the gun was liked, the crew ergonomics were not.

Only 50 M10s were ordered, and they finished arriving about the same time as the gunnery trials completed. They were delivered critically short of spares and other equipment, and training proceeded with a lack of manuals with crews who had not any previous tank destroyer experience. In the end, 44 of these vehicles were split up between the 1223rd and 1239th Self Propelled Artillery Regiments, who used them in Belarus and Poland respectively. No more M10s were requested, instead the M4A2(76)W would take its place. Our Soviet M10 was modified from the original by Agus by Matt Baker.



The Valentine was perhaps the most liked of the various tanks received by the Soviets from the British. Small, reasonably well armoured and with good reliability, they could be found on the front lines all the way from Moscow in the winter of 1941 through to the end of the war. Replaced in British service by the Churchill by mid 1943, it remained in production through to 1945 almost exclusively to equip the Red Army.

The tank went through several different designs, and was produced in both the UK and Canada. The Mk VII variant was a Canadian built version of the Mk II with a new US made transmission and GMC 6004 engine. More parts were made by castings, and the BESA coaxial machinegun was replaced with a M1919A4. In total, the Canadians would make 1420 Valentines, with all but a handful being sent to the Soviets. Ours was modified from Montoya's Mk II by Matt Baker.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a render of a German submachine gun, the MP 38



The MP 38 grew from a German Army request for a compact submachine gun that could be easily carried and used by armoured vehicle crews and paratroopers. Erma had a prototype that seemed to fit these requirements in their EMP 36, and with some modifications to simplify the design it became the MP 38. One notable feature retained was the rail under the barrel that could be hooked over the door or side of an APC and allow firing from within without the risk of the muzzle falling inside the armour.

The MP 38 has a couple of notable and easily visible differences from its more well known replacement, the MP 40. The machined magazine well has lightening holes cut into the sides and lacks the reinforcing ribs that the MP 40 design transitioned to to allow thinner steel. The receiver is a single machined bar of steel, and has distinctive lightening slots cut into it. This single part is the main change that was introduced with the MP 40, which is really just an MP 38 updated to use stamped parts.

About 42000 MP 38s were manufactured from the summer of 1938 through to about 1942, with MP 40 production starting to replace them in 1940. Our one has been modified by Seth Soldier from our MP 40 made by Hail of Nails and Rad.
