Hello for whoever reading this :), I am Turkish007, (also known as TurkishCommando007) I am living in Istanbul, but my hometown is Rize, which is the land of tea, corn-bread, anchovy, cabbage, and crooked noses :D I dont have a lot of time to play games, but when I do I play Battlefield 1942 + its mods (Battlefield 1918 rocks!), Battlefield 2 + its mods (especially Forgotten Hope 2), Verdun Online, etc... I am one of the leaders of Forgotten Hope Turkish Community. I am especially interested in First World War and the Turkish War of Independence. Therefore, I think the best for my country and I am a Kemalist.Also, check out my YouTube channel, I upload cool army stuff frequently: youtube.com/user/MP40meatballTR
On the day of 22nd October 1993, with a large group of PKK militants, total 1600 men, infiltrating into the town of Lice, Diyarbakır a huge battle started between the local garrison of the Turkish Army.
Location of Diyarbakır
The terrorists launch AT rockets and fire PKM's from houses, apartments, tall buildings, mosque minarets, on to the municipality center, the hospital, and all the buildings representing the Republic of Turkey.
As the assault begins, Diyarbakır Gendarmerie commander Bahtiyar Aydın takes off with a S70 Skorsky helicopter and is dropped off at the courtyard of the divisional HQ in Lice. As he and his men run over to the building to get in safe and sound, the militants open sniper fire and Bahtiyar Aydin loses his life on the spot. Colonel Eşref Hatipoğlu takes command.
As the clashes go on, Lieutenant General Hasan Kundakçı and his assistant Ilker Başbuğ fly to Lice to aid Eşref Hatipoğlu and his men trapped in the divisional HQ. The pilot of the helicopter does not want to risk being shot down as heavy machine gun fire starts as they try to land to the divisional HQ courtyard. The S70 Skorsky helicopter turns around and lands at the garden of a school which is used as a makeshift field hospital.
Hasan Kundakçı (right)
As the radio conversation of the PKK is being listened, the radio operator hears one militant saying "Lets target that school, 55 dead men will sure make a huge scandal!" and directs his men to the school which is full of 55 wounded soldiers, and 2 major ranked generals.
There is no chance of support coming from the Gendarmerie garrison (which is 20km's to the East) to the school because the divisional HQ is under heavy fire and is about to fall into the hands of the PKK. And all of the 12 trucks in the batallion are now inactive and wrecked.
Hasan Kundakçı adresses his men demoralized and injured, trapped in the school:
"The enemy has chosen us as we are a weak target for them, but we will prove that we are not! It is better to die fighting than to die while laying on a stretcher. It is going to be hard, and most likely we will not survive. But it is worth for our country! Everyone gather at the hall."
The men who hear this from the speakers of the school, take up arms and take their positions on the windows, the roof and the school gate. 55 men without their legs or arms, 2 generals, and 2 helicopter pilots fortify themselves and await for the attack.
They fight off the guerillas for 14 hours until reinforcements arrive. The PKK is driven back from Diyarbakir. The town is in ruins, yet it is cleaned from all terrorist activity.
Lt. Mustafa Fehmi Kubilay and the Menemen Incident
The Menemen Incident refers to a chain of incidents which occurred in Menemen, a small town in the Aegean region of Turkey, on 23 December 1930.Following the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923, the Republican People's Party of Turkey pursued a somewhat liberal policy towards Islam, promoting secularism while not taking a hard line against Islamic institutions and practices, believing that the secularism of their ideology was already taking root. This confidence was shaken on 23 December 1930, when Dervish Mehmed Efendi, a member of the Naqshbandi order, created a disturbance by rallying a crowd against secular government and calling for the restoration of Sharia rule and the Caliphate. A contingent of Turkish Gendarme from the local garrison was sent to quell the demonstration. The soldiers wihch had blank rounds loaded in their rifles opened fire on the demonstartors to scare them off, but the crowd did not scatter. As Lt. Kubilay came close to the crowd, unarmed and with the will of negotiation, he was shot by one of the demonstrators. The crowd then beheaded Lt. Mustafa Fehmi Kubilay, and placed his severed head on a pole with a green flag before parading through town with it.With the reactions of the Turkish government and M.K. Ataturk, the next few months Menemen was ruled with martial law, and Dervish Mehmed Efendi and his henchmen were executed with the decision of special military courts.

READ THIS! REALLY IMPORTANT!
So, there are 2 projects for Forgotten Hope 2 that I need to finish, and I need voulenteer animators and navmeshers for them.
Project 1: Warsaw Uprising 1944 Custom Map Navmeshing
This custom map and skins made by [KamiKaze] Destroyer for FH2 was one of the most popular custom maps made and was played online a few times. The development was continuing until [KamiKaze] Destroyer disappeared for months and came back with the news that he wasnt going to continue the project.
You all probably know that its really hard to find players to play or organise an event for the custom maps, and I need someone to navmesh the map so everyone can enjoy an awesome SP game!
Second Project: Blyskawica SMG animating
One of the PR devs, Tim270, donated the Warsaw Uprising 1944 map's develper the model and skin of the Blyskawica SMG. He had found an animator, but the project wasnt continued after all. This SMG would make the map unique and pretty awesome. I need a voulenteer animator to animate the weapon.
If you dont have your hands full, and you want to work on these projects, please message me! I'll send you the files.
