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 76mm Divisional Gun M1942, or ZiS-3 as it was better known, came about during the initial stages of the Soviet campaign to fill the need for a medium caliber gun that could destroy the German armor at the time. The design was relatively simple with a 76.2mm gun mounted on the carriage from the older ZiS-2. Combat experience showed that the ZiS-3 was largely superior to other Soviet AT weapons, and the gun's extreme reliability and accuracy meant that it was well liked by both the enlisted men and the top brass. In all, from 1941 to the end of the war, production of the gun reached well over 103,000. The 76mm Divisional Gun M1942 (ZiS-3) was made by Kraetzer, with help from Toddel on the wheels.
