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.
The upcoming bugs fixing patch is going to add yet another tanks!

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.
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.

Overall project wa cancelled but the turret, will be used for the Tiger II Porsche.The maximum speed of electric driven Tiger P2 was supposed to be 35km/h.
