Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. We are back with our second update of the week, and today the Soviets will be receiving some much needed support in the way of small arms and explosives. Enjoy!

In the render below you can see the two weapons we are revealing today. They are the PPS-43 submachine gun and the F1 grenade.


The PPS family of submachine guns (SMGs) started out in 1942 in the form of the PPS-42. It was primarily designed to be a lightweight, compact weapon to be used by various Soviet reconnaissance teams, vehicle crews, and support personnel. In 1943, after a production run of 45,000 units, the PPS-43 came into service with several design changes. Some of the more notable changes included a ventilated heat shield in the upper receiver and a shortened barrel and stock. The PPS-43 went on to be used throughout the rest of the war and was produced up until 1968. It still can be found in use today by some smaller nations.

The Soviet F1 hand grenade (nicknamed "Little Lemon") was a small, defensive fragmentation grenade. Introduced during World War II, the F1 was based on the existing French grenade of similar design and featured 60 grams of TNT. Its estimated throwing distance was somewhere between 30-45 meters, and could disperse metal shrapnel up to a distance of 200 meters. Thus the grenade had to be used from a defensive position to avoid injuring any nearby friendly troops. Both the PPS-43 submachine gun and the F1 hand grenade were made by Seth Soldier.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

"Commrade Commisar, these are potatoes. Why are we not using real grenades?"

"Because real grenades are worth more than you comrade."

That's from Call of Duty 2, the first mission.
