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 Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we're back from the dead with another explosive render just in time for the fireworks. It's Christmas Eve, and when you have nine targets overhead, there's only one weapon you need: the Luftfaust B.

Luftfaust B


Designed in late 1944, the Luftfaust was the only one of several German man portable anti-aircraft rocket launchers that made it off the drawing board and into combat trials before the end of the war. Consisting of 9 lengths of pipe, a rudimentary sight, and a firing system taken from the Panzerschreck, it was to be fired from the shoulder at low flying aircraft.

The projectiles used a warhead derived from normal 20 mm anti-aircraft ammunition mated to a spin stabilised rocket motor. Fired as a salvo of 4, followed a fraction of a second later by the remaining 5, the rockets would spread out to a circle of 40 metres across at 200 metres distance.

It isn't known how many Luftfausts were made or used in the confusion of the last days of the war, but it is known that at least a handful were deployed in and around Berlin. Ours was made by the ever talented Seth Soldier.

However that's not all, we have another little present for you. A few screenshots taken from upcoming maps. Please mind that these are works in progress and subject to change.

Finally, since this is Forgotten Hope 2's 10th Christmas, we thought we'd dig out something from a while ago. All the way back in 2003, McGibs drew us a little Christmas scene, and we thought that 14 years later it might be time to get it out again. Enjoy the holidays everyone!


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