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.

Report RSS Kawanishi H8K "Emily"

With the Kawanishi H8K "Emily" the Japanese Airforce gets their first four-engined airplane in FHSW 0.6. It's also the very first flying boat in the mod!

Posted by on

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!

Sadly I have no experience with Win 8.1. But the first thing I would do is replace the original .exe with the improved one created by the community: Origin: Team-simple.org CD: Team-simple.org

Great to see the Emily, and I can't wait to fly this one.

The first time I've seen this flying boat was from episode "File.01 - And so they met" on You're under arrest OVA... ;)

That looks awesome, I literally only recently learned about FHSW and the cool naval battles you can have so I got downloading it and will try it online soon, I hope people are still playing, those naval battles look awesome from videos I've seen but that was years ago, I'm really late to this mod...

Hi, yea the naval battles are very unique to this mod. If you're serious about playing I recommend visiting our site since we only play on specific times (it's the only active server for FHSW outside of Japan): Fhsw-europ.ucoz.de
