Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.
Up first we have a brand new aircraft-mounted, German machine gun, the Mauser MG81.
Intended to replace the older, magazine-fed MG15, the MG81 was a belt-fed, aircraft-based machine gun in production from 1940 to 1945. It saw use as both a single and twin mount (MG 81Z) in various Luftwaffe aircraft, including the new Ju87 D-1 Trop shown below. The MG81 was made by Herc and exported by Kev4000. Our next two renders are of an updated version of an aircraft that has long since been in FH2. It is the Ju87 D-1 Trop.
The Junkers Ju-87 D-1 came into service shortly after the Battle of Britain, and included several improvements over previous versions. Such changes included a better cockpit, more armor, an increased bomb-load, a more powerful engine, and a rear-facing MG 81Z for protection. The Ju-87 D-1 Trop was made by K96, AceS, and Herc, and was exported by Kev4000.
