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.

fh2 2 54 release


Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

We've had about 5 months now since version 2.53 was released, and we have used this time to make a few changes to the mod to improve your experience. We've even managed to squeeze a little bit of brand new content in too! We are thus excited to announce that Forgotten Hope 2.54 will be going live on:

Thursday 25th October 2018


As usual, we'd like to give a big thanks to our players for sticking with us and keeping the servers populated even after all this time. Additionally, we would like to thank our team of betatesters for their dedication to improving our work, as well as our developers for the time and effort they put in to make things happen. Last but not least, none of this would be possible without the web hosting generously provided by Fluestertuete.

We mentioned some new content earlier, and here it is:

ISU-152


The SU-152 had proven itself as a valuable asset to the Red Army from it's introduction in early 1943. However, by the middle of the year it was recognised that the design would need to be adapted, as the KV-1S chassis that it was built on was being replaced in production by the new IS series. The new ISU-152 replaced the older design in production by December of the same year.

Just like it's predecessor, the ISU-152 was primarliy tasked with supporting the infantry in assaults against hardened targets. As such, it was primarily issued with high explosive shells for its 152mm howitzer. While an armour piercing round was developed, these were rare and only slightly more effective against tanks than the blast of the HE shell.

The ISU-152 went through several upgrades during and after the war. One of these was the addition of a 12.7mm DShK machinegun on an anti-aircraft mount. In total, 1885 ISU-152s were built during the war (a further 1357 followed after the war and served into the 1970s), and ours was made by Seth Soldier, who modified our IS-2 made originally by Rad, Toddel and Matt Baker.

DShKDShK


Originally developed in the late 1920's by Vasily Degtyaryov as the magazine fed DK, the weapon was updated in 1938 with an add-on belt feed by Georgi Shpagin to become the DShK. Conceived of as a light anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapon, it would primarily fall into the role of the latter, either tripod mounted, or fixed to the hatch of an IS or ISU. Ours was made by Seth Soldier.


That's all for today, but be sure to come back tomorrow 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.

It is already in the beta, but we don't have 1941 or 1942 maps to put it on.
