Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon (FHSW) is an unofficial continuation of the famous Forgotten Hope (FH), a Battlefield 1942 modification. We say unofficial since FHSW is developed by FH fans, not the original FH creators. In 2007 it started as a small addon but since then it has grown to be one of the biggest mods of all time!

What makes this mod special is that it adds lots of - but not only - Secret Weapons which saw limited or no action at all during WW2 like jet fighters and super heavy tanks. Some of the maps feature "what-if" battles like a landing operation on the Japanese mainland or attacking a secret German base in the African desert.



Features


  • Over 650 different vehicles at land, sea and air featuring lots of Secret Weapons of WW2!
  • 130 maps, from tight infantry action over pure tank and plane combat maps to full scale naval battles. Or everything at once!
  • 150 hand weapons with new reload and moving animations for all (AT) rifles, bipods for MGs and (reworked) deployable weapons like mortars and heavy machine guns
  • 12 nations: Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Poland, Soviet Union and USA
  • Completely overhauled, more immersive sounds and effects
  • New techniques: switchable ammo, towable AT guns, altimeter for planes, napalm & cluster bombs, bayonets and much more
  • Heavily modified combat to enhance realism while not being overly complicated
  • Unique gameplay: Control the mysterious 1000-tonne tank "Ratte", use the Me 323 to transport tanks to the front line, fly Kamikaze missions against heavily armed Battleships or ... simply take a horse.

At the same time the Kawanishi H6K was going into service in 1938 the Navy ordered the development of a larger, longer-ranged patrol aircraft. The result was the H8K which was one of the best if not the best flying boat of World War II. It was in service from 1942 till the end of the War during which it earned deep respect among Allied aircrews. Unlike many other Japanese airplanes "Emily" could take quite a beating and its defensive armament was pretty impressive as well.



Available in FHSW will be the main variant H8K2 which had improved engines and armament. Possible bomb load configurations are

  • 2x 800 kg bomb
  • 8x 250 kg bomb
  • 16x 60 kg bomblet
  • 2x torpedo

So the Japanese airforce in FHSW finally receives a four-engined bomber with a high bombload that can close the gap to the B-17 a bit.



It's equipped with an Air to Surface Vessel (ASV) radar which means for FHSW you have the rare ability to detect ships and submarines from air. Besides the pilot five seats are available and each one has a 20 mm gun. Even late American fighters can get into trouble when attacking a fully crewed "Emily"! There's no defensive armament on the underside of the plane so it's the safest to attack from below.



Look forward to version 0.6 to fly this magnificent airplane!

Just a quick question really I guess, is there ever going to be a way to play this mod in single player? I've come back to this mod many times over the past few years yet still its a known issue.
If not does anyone know of a way of introducing bots a a conquest LAN mode?
I know you probably get asked that a lot and for that I apologise.

It doesn't look like that they're ever going to add SP again.

You need someone who is familiar with BF1942 coding, it's not an easy fix that anyone can do.

I don't understand the difference between this and Forgotten Hope 0.7, but considering that Pixel-Fighter servers have been protected by the password general folks lack IQ to decipher, they are mostly dead (8 people on Sundays, really?). So I'm downloading this. I hope, the FHSW servers aren't flooded with bots.

FHSW is a huge enhancement of FH with better effects, sounds and a very long list of new features and vehicles. (towable guns, levelbombing mechanic, switchable ammo for tanks, proper reload animations for most rifles, ...)

FHSW has no singleplayer support so you won't see any bots. Like FH FHSW is also only really populated on weekend evenings, yesterday we had 30 to 40 players.

Hmm you have to contact the server admin. I doubt you got banned for editing video.con because this file doesn't get checked by any admin tool.
