A render of the Ferdinand, and the first screenshots of the Eastern Front; including the first sighting of the Finnish faction.

Posted by Eat_Uranium on Dec 17th, 2012

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2!

As promised in the last news update on Friday, we have some nice Eastern Front teasers for you.

The first one is a heavy German tank destroyer which, while rare and relatively unsuccessful, left its mark on the Kursk offensive: The Panzerjäger Tiger (P)!

Panzerjäger Tiger (P)

Better known under its official nickname "Ferdinand", after its designer Ferdinand Porsche, it was based on the chassis of the failed Tiger (P) prototype. It was the first tank destroyer to mount the powerful 8.8cm Pak 43/2 gun, which was able to knock out even the heaviest of Allied tanks. It also boasted an impressive front armor of 200mm. However, several design flaws made it a less than successful design. It was very slow and lacked maneuverability. Since it had no machine gun, it was vulnerable to close assault by Soviet tank hunters and sappers.

In light of our anniversary and in the spirit of the season we have some additional teaser screenshots, showing not only Russian vehicles, but also equipment of an as of yet unannounced faction: Finland! These were made during test sessions and should be regarded as far from finished. However, we thought some of you might get a kick out of seeing some Russian and Finnish tanks in action and the new statics you will soon be able to fight over. Note that not all of the maps shown will be released .

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