A render of the M1910 Maxim watercooled machinegun, and news on a server patch.

Posted by Eat_Uranium on Sep 23rd, 2012

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have details of a server patch, as well as a render of an important Soviet weapon: the M1910 Maxim machine gun!

M1910 Maxim

The first Maxim gun had been demonstrated in 1884 by inventor Hiram Maxim, and would go on to serve in many European armies in various colonial conquests. The Imperial Russian army adopted a modified version in 1910, chambered in the standard 7.62x54mmR rifle cartridge. This design would go on to serve with the Red Army well into the 1960s. In that time, a few improvements were made, such as adding the ability to feed from metal belts as well as the older cloth belts, as well as the distinctive larger water filling port copied from Finnish Maxims that allowed the shroud to be filled with snow.

The M1910 was mounted on either the Vladimorov mount designed in 1939 or like our example: a 1910 designed Sokolov mount. The wheels allowed the gun to be easily manoeuvred despite its heavy weight, and the mount also had legs that could be extended to make it taller (although these were later deleted to save construction time). Each gun was also issued with a gun shield, though in the field these were often abandoned to save weight. The M1910 Maxim was made by Pointblank

Now for information concerning our server patch. For those curios as to what has changed, they can see a short changelog here.

Remember that if you do not administer a server, you do not need to download this. The files can be found here.

In my opinion, the PTRS-41 doesn't look that awesome (I mean, in real life, not in game), but I'm sure it will be quite usefull when facing German tanks :-D
