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 Lewis gun in its aerial configuration was used extensively on British and French aircraft during the First World War. Its popularity came from being light-weight, air-cooled, and the fact that it could be fitted with 97-round drum magazines. By World War II however, the Lewis Gun was largely replaced on aircraft by the Vickers Gun, which could achieve twice the firing rate of the Lewis. However, the weapon was still used on some British and US Army aircraft, and in FH2, the Lewis Gun will be present on the back of the Hawker Hardy. The Lewis Aircraft Gun was made by Herc and exported by Kev4000.
