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.
A version of Churchill tank equipped with an antitank gun, larger than 6 pounds, finally appeared. Armoured units used to mount the damaged M4 Sherman's M3 75mm gun in Churchill Mk. III or Mk. IV turrets. Overall number of about 200 Churchills NA75 served in North Africa and Italy during the World War II.
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.

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Forgotten Hope: Secret Weapon. We love games like Battlefield 1942 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
