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.

Just wanted you guys to know that I am doing some fixes in the grammar department on the FHSW wiki, if that's okay. I've just been getting tired of the spelling and grammatical errors, and since I am very good with English I thought I'd lend a hand.

I wish to know the answers to 2 question. Do you think you'll be able to give the Germans the PzB39, with a custom reload animation? Also, do you think you'll be able to give the Australians the SMLE (Lee-Enfield No. 1) Mk. III, which should also have custom animations? Like I said, I wish to know. Thanks.

Very interesting project. If you are interested to add more Soviet secret weapons i recommend to look on these topic. There are several WW2 soviet jet fighter projects and some other stuff.

Just wondering, will you be adding more Brit stuff to the mod? Like the 'Tulip' launchers, Z-battery, Lancaster (with standard, Upkeep, Tallboy or Grand Slam loads), Nelson class Battleships, HMS Warspite (she can never die lol), Churchill tanks and variants etc?

With the recent development in the past few weeks/months:
=>Gamespy shutdown (ie. the in-game server browser will not display list of servers anymore)
=>EA pulling off legacy Battlefield franchise, including BFV, BF2 and BF2142 on 6/30/2014

I'll take it back what I just said in the first paragraph of my previous post, and reiterate this mod MUST DEFINITELY HAVE sp/coop support or it will face the same fate of other mods like Finnwars, Norwegian resistance and Battlefield 1918 (the latter have plenty of sp/coop maps to play with)...

we have found several options for keeping multiplayer online after the gamespy shutdown, I dont think that is going to change the devs minds about SP

Okay, i'll give up on the lack of SP/Coop support just do me a favor what I write below.

Yes it's good to see some additional vehicles and weapons including prototypes (others still on the drawing board) and "ficticious" ones on the mod :P, but it would be better for the FHSW development team to fix it's notorious bug: "Longer loading times-per-map" and reduced it to half (a quarter will be great) in the next release (0.55).

Waiting time to load a map is killing me, and I believe others also share the same sentiment too...
