Today we are showing off our Finnish captured ISU-152 render, as well as acknowledging our fans who have voted us into the top 100 mods this year!

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a nice little early Christmas present in the form of a render, but first:

Mod of the Year Awards


It's that time of year again, and we are so grateful that once again you voted enough to get us into the top 100 mods! We'd be very grateful if you decide to vote for us again, and while you can't win a second time, we might just make it to an honourable mention.

ISU-152


Amongst the multitude of Soviet tanks captured by the Finns were two ISU-152s, both of which were captured around the Portinhoikka crossroads during the battle of Tali. Tank number 1212 was found stranded at the side of the road with battle damage and a thrown track, but still with a crew and a working gun. After a short fight it was captured, however it would serve out the remainder of the war at a repair centre. It served as a heavy recovery vehicle with the Finnish Army until 1964, when it was transferred to the Parola Tank Museum.

The other vehicle was captured completely intact, and was almost immediately pressed into service. Over the next four days it was painted with Finnish camouflage and markings, went through some evaluations and testing and then finally was used in a counterattack. With a hastily assembled crew who had no real experience operating such a heavy beast, it was hit several times by two dug in T-34-85s. The crew bailed out and the ISU burned.

With their limited experience using the vehicle, the Finns praised it for its hard hitting gun and strong armour, but they disliked how blind, clumsy and slow to aim and fire it was. Seth Soldier modified our original ISU-152, which was made by himself, Rad, Toddel and Matt Baker.


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.
