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.

Today we show off a render of the famous Mosin-Nagant rifle.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we would like to show you a render of arguably the most important weapon of the Soviet infantryman. It is of course, the Mosin-Nagant M1891/30!

M1891/30

The Mosin-Nagant began its long life with a competition to replace the aging single shot Berdan rifles that equipped the Tsarist army. The winning design was Russian Captain Sergei Ivanovich Mosin's rifle, with the addition of the clip feed, magazine spring and feed interrupter of Belgian Léon Nagant's proposal. The original Mosin rifle was made in Infantry, Dragoon and Cossack variants.

Following the victory of the Red Army in the Civil War, the decision was taken to modernise the rifle. The M1891/30 was based on the earlier Dragoon rifle, many of which were reworked to the new standard. Improvements included a hooded post front sight, flat rear sight marked in metres, and eventually a change from the octagonal "hex" receivers to round ones. By 1945, 17.4 million M19/30 rifles had been manufactured.

The M91/30 also had some success as a sniper rifle, fitted with either a PE, PEM, or most commonly a PU scope. The mounting of these scopes above the receiver meant that a bent bolt had to be fitted. The Mosin-Nagant rifles were made by Seth Soldier.


Our winners for this week's screenshot competition is Lupin. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of August 20th. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them href="http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=16835.0">here.
