Forgotten Hope 2 is an award-winning World War II modification for Battlefield 2TM and is based on the original Forgotten Hope, a modification for Battlefield 1942TM, one of the most popular multiplayer games ever. Battlefield 1942TM featured land, sea and air combat in a way never before seen. It was the goal of the development team to maximize the game experience by adding both a realistic and enjoyable gameplay to FH and now to FH2.
With the release of Electronic ArtsTM Battlefield 2TM, the development potential has increased a lot. An all-new game engine and physics system brings the battlefield to life like never before. The new material penetration feature measures weapons ability to fire through barriers based on their composition and players will need to know the difference between concealment and cover in order to survive. Immense, richly detailed environments from city streets to remote forests, brought to you with brilliant graphics are some of the more exciting features of Battlefield 2TM. And we are going to bring all this to the Second World War.
With over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment, with tanks such as the mighty German Tiger tank and the diminutive British Vickers light tank, aircraft from the famed American P-51 Mustang to the antiquated German Stuka dive-bomber, and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfaust and the fearsome American M-1 Garand rifle, Forgotten Hope 2 has a wider scope than any other Second World War First Person Shooter, ever!
Winston Churchill once said "It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time." But we do look far ahead. The end of our road has not changed, only the stops along the way. Forgotten Hope 2 currently concentrates the battles fought between Allied and Axis powers in the North African and Normandy theaters of operation.
You will be given the chance to take part in maybe the most important campaigns of World War II. Fight alongside Rommel's Africa Corps in the harsh climates of the North African desert as you attempt to break through the British lines at El Alamein, or hold off attacking forces at Tunis. Serve next to American forces as you seek to destroy Hitler's Atlantic Wall at the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc, or break out from the Norman countryside in Operation Cobra.
"The battle which is about to begin will be one of the most important battles in history. It will be the turning point of the war." But it will only be the end of the beginning for Forgotten Hope 2. We will be ever expanding the mod to all of the theaters its prequel currently occupies, and more.
Whatever the side you choose you will have an almost endless armory at your disposal. Your weaponry will reach from knives to heavy machine guns to anti-tank rifles. Your equipment will contain everything from the first aid kit to magnetic hollow charges. Your motor pool will offer any type of vehicle, whether you want to drive jeeps, APCs, or tanks, and your airfields will give you the chance to pilot scout planes, fighters, and heavy cargo planes.
Forgotten Hope 2 will also offer different gamemodes for different situations. In addition to the standard conquest maps Battlefield is famous for, you will also need to destroy or defend strategic targets in objective-mode, or take tactical positions in a set order in push mode.
So whether you like house to house fighting in Tunis, tank battles in the African desert or dogfights in skies over northern England, Forgotten Hope 2 will have something for you.

Welcome to the Forgotten Hope Community!
Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today marks 81 years since the German Invasion of Poland, the opening act in what would become the Second World War. While we at Forgotten Hope 2 are not focusing on this first front just yet, we will have 2 weapons used by the Poles and subsequently captured by the Germans in our upcoming version 2.6. These are the Vis pistol and the Wz. 35 antitank rifle.
In the late 1928's the Polish military conducted a series of trials to find a new automatic service pistol. While they were looking for something small and compact, they ended up deciding to adopt the Browning Hi-Power that had been brought along by FN as an afterthought. Unfortunately for the military this deal would fall through. Relations with FN would sour in the aftermath of the fiasco that was the adoption of the Wz.28 BAR.
The decision was taken to instead develop a domestic design building on the strengths of the Hi-Power. Developed as the WiS by Piotr Wilniewczyc and Jan Skrzypinski working at the Fabryka Broni in Radom, the first designs were ready for testing in 1931. The final product would go into production in 1935 as the Vis. Just under 50000 would be made before the German invasion in 1939.
The factory in Radom was captured intact by the Germans, and the Vis would continue on in production. About a third of a million would be produced under occupation, making it the third most common pistol in German hands. Several hundred pistols were also smuggled out of the factory to the Polish Resistance. Our Polish Vis and German P645(p) were made by Lukelcc and Ashton.
In the late 1920s the Polish military began work to develop an infantry antitank weapon. Work began first on developing ammunition, with the winning design settling on a standard 8mm Mauser cartridge with a considerably larger case. The bullet was made of soft lead, and was intended primarily to cause spalling to armour plate rather than to penetrate.
At the same time, a rifle was designed to take this new cartridge. The rifle was essentially an oversized Mauser action, feeding from a 4 round detachable box magazine. The barrel was fitted with an effective muzzle brake. Expected lifetime for the barrel was about 300 rounds due to the high pressure loading. The design was adopted in late 1935, and 7610 were ordered as the Wz.35.
The rifles were delivered from the factory to a central store, and were not sent out to the Army until mid 1939. They were packed into boxes marked do not open; surveillance equipment, and crews were trained in secret. In theory, the rifle was capable of taking on any German or Soviet tank involved in the invasion, with reported penetration of 33mm at 100 metres.
After the invasion, the Wz.35 would be used by the Germans, who would sell them onto the Italians in 1941. It is not know exactly how many were actually made, as the records were considered top secret and destroyed in 1939. Our Wz.35 was made by Ashton.
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Historically correct, crude and with lots of violence, completely realistic, action in the most pure level, what else can be said about it? one of the biggest, and in my opinion, greatest modifications ever done for BF2, brings us the real feeling of the WW2. Epic.
