Forgotten Hope 2 is an award-winning World War II modification for Battlefield 2TM and is based on the original Forgotten Hope, a modification for Battlefield 1942TM, one of the most popular multiplayer games ever. Battlefield 1942TM featured land, sea and air combat in a way never before seen. It was the goal of the development team to maximize the game experience by adding both a realistic and enjoyable gameplay to FH and now to FH2.
The Germans captured a great number of T-34 tanks during their advances into the Soviet Union. A great many of these were pressed into service, both before and after receiving modifications (most usually fitting cupolas from damaged Pz III or IV). Since using the same shaped tank as the enemy is a risky move, the T-34s were painted with many large visible crosses.
