Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon (FHSW) is an unofficial continuation of the famous Forgotten Hope (FH), a Battlefield 1942 modification. We say unofficial since FHSW is developed by FH fans, not the original FH creators. In 2007 it started as a small addon but since then it has grown to be one of the biggest mods of all time!
What makes this mod special is that it adds lots of - but not only - Secret Weapons which saw limited or no action at all during WW2 like jet fighters and super heavy tanks. Some of the maps feature "what-if" battles like a landing operation on the Japanese mainland or attacking a secret German base in the African desert.
Over 650 different vehicles at land, sea and air featuring lots of Secret Weapons of WW2!
130 maps, from tight infantry action over pure tank and plane combat maps to full scale naval battles. Or everything at once!
150 hand weapons with new reload and moving animations for all (AT) rifles, bipods for MGs and (reworked) deployable weapons like mortars and heavy machine guns
12 nations: Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Poland, Soviet Union and USA
Completely overhauled, more immersive sounds and effects
New techniques: switchable ammo, towable AT guns, altimeter for planes, napalm & cluster bombs, bayonets and much more
Heavily modified combat to enhance realism while not being overly complicated
Unique gameplay: Control the mysterious 1000-tonne tank "Ratte", use the Me 323 to transport tanks to the front line, fly Kamikaze missions against heavily armed Battleships or ... simply take a horse.
FHSW 0.61 has been released with the main goal of fixing a lot of bugs. But the devs also added a lot of new things, the highlight being the new map "Fall of Berlin" which recreates the final battle of World War II in Europe in a very convincing manner.
