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.

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.

Posted by spitfire05 on Apr 17th, 2012

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.

Our winner for this week's screenshot competition is von.small. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of April 15th. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.

That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
