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.

KV-3 Heavy Tank

A planned successor of KV-1S and KV-2 tanks, as soviet headquarters needed more powerful vehicle than these. The production was aborted due to Soviet-German war that started in June 1941.
However the sources say that KV-3 was used in defense during the battle of Moscow.
Equipped with Zis-6 107mm gun, that may be know for FHSW players as the KV-2 107 used the same cannon. In addition the KV-3 is a revised version of KV-1S so the engine power has been increased to 650 hp from 600hp.
