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 PPSh-41 was intended to be an inexpensive replacement for the older, PPD-40 SMG, which had been in use since the mid 1930s. The PPSh was mainly a poor man's infantry weapon. It was made from wood and stamped steel, with the barrels made from halved M1891 Mosin-Nagant barrels. The result was a simple SMG with a fire-rate of 900 rounds per minute, that could be produced in mere hours in garages and industrial shops by relatively unskilled workers. Over 6 million of these weapons were produced, and thus used in almost every thinkable way. Entire Soviet divisions were sometimes equipped with the PPSh, and even the German Army officially adopted it. However, one of the most bizarre uses, was as a close-air support weapon, where several of these SMGs were mounted to the forward racks of the Tu-2 bomber. The PPSh-41 submachine gun was made by Seth Soldier.
