Forgotten Hope 2 - WW2 modification for Battlefield 2 version 2.46 - Part 2 of 2 Full Install
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.
With the release of Electronic ArtsTM Battlefield 2TM, the development potential has increased a lot. An all-new game engine and physics system brings the battlefield to life like never before. The new material penetration feature measures weapons ability to fire through barriers based on their composition and players will need to know the difference between concealment and cover in order to survive. Immense, richly detailed environments from city streets to remote forests, brought to you with brilliant graphics are some of the more exciting features of Battlefield 2TM. And we are going to bring all this to the Second World War.
With over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment, with tanks such as the mighty German Tiger tank and the diminutive British Vickers light tank, aircraft from the famed American P-51 Mustang to the antiquated German Stuka dive-bomber, and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfaust and the fearsome American M-1 Garand rifle, Forgotten Hope 2 has a wider scope than any other Second World War First Person Shooter, ever!
Winston Churchill once said "It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time." But we do look far ahead. The end of our road has not changed, only the stops along the way. Forgotten Hope 2 currently concentrates the battles fought between Allied and Axis powers in the North African and Normandy theaters of operation.
You will be given the chance to take part in maybe the most important campaigns of World War II. Fight alongside Rommel's Africa Corps in the harsh climates of the North African desert as you attempt to break through the British lines at El Alamein, or hold off attacking forces at Tunis. Serve next to American forces as you seek to destroy Hitler's Atlantic Wall at the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc, or break out from the Norman countryside in Operation Cobra.
"The battle which is about to begin will be one of the most important battles in history. It will be the turning point of the war." But it will only be the end of the beginning for Forgotten Hope 2. We will be ever expanding the mod to all of the theaters its prequel currently occupies, and more.
Whatever the side you choose you will have an almost endless armory at your disposal. Your weaponry will reach from knives to heavy machine guns to anti-tank rifles. Your equipment will contain everything from the first aid kit to magnetic hollow charges. Your motor pool will offer any type of vehicle, whether you want to drive jeeps, APCs, or tanks, and your airfields will give you the chance to pilot scout planes, fighters, and heavy cargo planes.
Forgotten Hope 2 will also offer different gamemodes for different situations. In addition to the standard conquest maps Battlefield is famous for, you will also need to destroy or defend strategic targets in objective-mode, or take tactical positions in a set order in push mode.
So whether you like house to house fighting in Tunis, tank battles in the African desert or dogfights in skies over northern England, Forgotten Hope 2 will have something for you.

Welcome to the Forgotten Hope Community!
Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today we have a render and screenshots of perhaps the most famous Soviet aircraft of the war: the Ilyushin Il-2.
The most produced military aircraft of all time, the Il-2 started life in 1938 with the design of the TsKB-55 by the team of Sergey Ilyushin. This two seat aircraft incorporated an armoured shell that protected the engine, fuel tank, radiators and crew. To save weight, the armour was a part of the load bearing stucture of the aircraft, but even with this it was overweight. Redesigned as a single seater, and powered with a newer Mikulin AM-38 engine optimised for low altitudes, the Il-2 was accepted into service in March 1941.
The rear gunner returned as an answer to heavy losses to fighters, first as a field improvisation and then in a 1943 redesign. While the rear gun proved effective, the casualty rate for gunners was high, since they were outside the protection of the armour plates. The extra weight also reduced the handling of the aircraft.
In the role of ground attack, the Il-2 was an intimidating prospect. While it suffered from poor bombing accuracy and low bomb load, its armour made it a difficult target to bring down. The accuracy was somewhat improved with PTAB shaped charge bomblets, of which the Il-2 could carry up to 192. These could penetrate the top armour of any tank on the battlefield, and were dropped in the millions.
36,183 Il-2 were produced during the war, and ours was made by Agus, with a cockpit by Fred and Berezin UBT by Agus.

Historically correct, crude and with lots of violence, completely realistic, action in the most pure level, what else can be said about it? one of the most biggest, and in my opinion, greatest modifications ever done for BF2, brings us the real feeling of the WW2 and makes us feel like if we are there. Epic.
