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.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of perhaps a lesser known rifle used by the German Army, the Gewehr 33/40(t).

Gewehr 33/40(t)


Known to its original owners as the vz. 33, the carbine had been designed to arm the Czechoslovak gendarmerie. Based somewhat on the army's vz.24 rifle, it was lightened and shortened to make a handier package.

With the capture of Czechoslovakia in the run up to the war, the arms factories of Brno began to make weapons for the Germans. The vz. 33 was one of several existing designs adopted into German service as the G33/40, with slight modifications to the buttplate and German style sling mounts.

This carbine was used principally to arm the Gebirgsjäger, and part of the modifications to the buttplate included a strengthening plate to allow the rifle to be used more effectively as a climbing aid. Just over 25000 vz. 33 and 131000 G33/40(t) carbines were manufactured up to 1942, and ours was made by Seth Soldier.


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.
